MY BAND'S SPIRIT ANIMAL
MY LEAST FAVORITE THING IN THE UNIVERSE
ON THE ROAD
I almost drove our van into a meth-head truck driver when the lane merged too quickly on tour in 2010 with Helado Negro. Sorry, Roberto.
MY WORST SHOW/BEST SHOW EVER
When I played NX35 in Denton, Texas, in 2010. My parents were there, and a drunk man mocked me and then told me I sucked.
I'LL KNOW I'VE MADE IT WHEN
I have interpretive dancers in the crew.
THE IDEAL SITUATION TO LISTEN TO MY MUSIC
While riding on horseback.
MY DREAM COLLABORATION
3 albums that inspired Julianna Barwick to make music

I checked this out from the library on vinyl.
Empire of the Sun [film soundtrack]
I saw the movie when I was 7 and I've loved it ever since.
