· “Jared kinda sounds like Mark Bolan. I’ll just say it, cause you might think it. It’s science. When I asked him what record felt to him like how he wanted ‘Disturbing Wildlife’ to feel to me, he said ‘‘Cuckooland’ by Robert Wyatt’, promptly adding ‘and the first time I listened to ‘What’s Going On’ through headphones, stoned.’ He’s got a Small Faces song link for just about everything I say and he knew the Lifetones song I sent him yesterday, which may be my secret litmus test. When I listen to ‘Invisible Familiars’, I don’t hear just anything - I hear everything. It’s the cumulative result of being alive with the radio on. And I’m not talking about subliminal influences, because
even the color of the sky can turn into a song. It’s that other transaction, where music accompanies your body - and your brain inside of it - and enables your understanding and definition of life. And then you go and make something: some food, a picture, your bed, a friend, a baby, a joke, a new song.” - Sara Padgett Heathcott, Hometapes
