If you love Elliott Smith, you will truly appreciate our musical guests today. A band that captures the melancholy essence that is at the core of Marty’s very being.
Fronted by the soft-spoken and heavily tattooed Chris Mansfield, the band Fences just released its self-titled debut CD yesterday. Recorded and produced by Sara Quinn of Tegan and Sara, Mansfield’s songs revel in the glory of being a screw up. Like getting fired from your job, getting pregnant with no career prospects, sitting in your basement pretending to talk to people through your computer. God, this guy speaks to us.
Oh, and happy birthday Josie. Sorry you have dad’s genes.
