Brill Bruisers - The New Pornographers
Does the gentleman wish to yield?
Yield? Oh, no. I feel fine!
See for me if her hair’s hanging down
It curls and flows all down her breasts
See for me that her hair hangs down
That’s the way I remember her best.
I’ve been wearing all black since the day it started
When I stopped and looked back as my mind departed
I’ve been losing sleep and I cannot sit still
I’m not the same woman that you were used to
We must discuss the rainbow airbrushed Adam Siegel suits you’ve been wearing this album cycle. They’re stunning.
One’s a little more My Little Pony, and the other one’s a little more like, Gram Parsons nudie suit. I love them so much. I knew I wanted to wear a suit. Autumn de Wilde, who I work with on all of my album covers and we’ve done a bunch of videos together, gets together with me after I’ve made a record to discuss the album art. I always want to tell a story and create a movie subplot, which we did for Jenny and Johnny and Under the Blacklight [Rilo Kiley album] as well.
Adam [Siegal], who’s Autumn’s art director, had been kind of revisiting airbrushing. He was a graffiti artist in the ‘80s in L.A. and they had done a shoot together where he airbrushed a suitcase. So Autumn asked him to do the suit, I gave him a color palette, we talked about the inspiration, and he just made those two suits for me. I kept on bugging him to paint more things. I was kind of taking advantage, like “Could you also do my boots? And my guitar? And my guitar strap?”

Suppose nobody stops for us.
They’ll stop all right. It’s all a matter of knowing how to hail’em.
And you’re an expert, I suppose.
Expert? I’m gonna write a book about it and call it “The Hitchhiker’s Hail”.
There’s no end to your accomplishments, is there?
You think it’s simple, huh? Well, it is simple. It’s all in that old thumb, see?
