Random Notes

"'Sometimes' was written at the very end of our time in the studio," says frontman Ben Nichols. "We only had a day or two left when I finally finished the lyrics.  In a way they are the most personal on the record. My family always seems to work its way into my songs. Fathers and brothers and ghosts."

Women and Work will be in stores on March 13th, but you can download "Sometimes" for free now.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
