what a different time. who would wear long sleeves on stage at a club show. how bizarre. i remember this night in NYC. was second full bleachers show ever. i didn't know exactly what i was doing i just knew it's what i needed to do. people had only heard IWGB then. excited to get back to people hearing new songs live for the first time. that's soon

generations of creepy antonoffs
i love this picture from last night. means a great deal to be able to play on song on snl in the same broken down way in which it was written. starting to feel more and more that this type of thing is my favorite: giving a large group of people the songs in the same feeling of how they came to be to begin with. friends in a room making work. even brought all the tiny little toys and pictures that were on the actual piano that ella and i did liability on.
pic @shane_timm just sent me from last sunday's show in FL. i love to play! hi from dinner! ........ had a long talk today about bleachers touring plans.

met her a few days after her first episode of girls came out - we were set up on a blind date orchestrated by my sister and birbiglia. have been with her through 6 seasons of making her show and tonight was the last premier of the last season. i have never seen somebody work so hard and put so much of their life into a body of work. pride doesn't begin to express it.
close on bleachers 2
obama pin jacket always relevant
i went with black and white to honor the final season!
the snow is starting to turn grey in NYC
i'm changing !
hi from first day of rehearsal .......
going through old pictures looking for things that felt good in 2016. @danielgsilbert took this pic a year ago today in my studio. i have not really left this room since. i go out to different places to gather ideas and sounds for the album --- but always bring it back here. go to atlanta and go in with organized noise, chicago, LA with friends, work in hotel rooms etc etc --- but it always comes back to this room. a year later i'm finishing what's taken all of me. mixing and finishing is an amazing process where all of a sudden you stand above the work and understand it in totally new ways. soon.. x bleachers x
i use to spend christmas alone at the coach house diner on rt 4 in NJ. very intense mix of sad individuals with no place to go for christmas and jews. miss that but also happy to be on vacation
going through old videos and found this from 4 years ago in my parents house in new jersey making the beat to what became "i wish you would". i miss that mpc- it broke literally into pieces about a year after this. did all of the beats on strange desire, my stuff on 1989, brave, entropy, how come you don't want me and a bunch more on this mpc. still have the shattered pieces somewhere. @danielgsilbert gave it to me or sold it to me but i definitely never paid him. hi from just south of india. happy holiday.
2016 is almost over so i feel i can confidently say this is the outfit of the year for america and likely the world
5am where i am and this album gets better and better.
this is what finishing an album looks like. leave the studio and start to hear it and work on it in the spaces people will do the same. on headphones pacing around my apartment. making edits on a laptop at the kitchen table instead of in a studio with nice speakers. nice speakers make everything sound good. that's why they cost so much. better to hear what you've been doing the way the world will hear it. out of the studio. always trying to leave the studio and hear things in the world xbleachersx
lena conducted a healing ceremony at last nights benefit and everyone at webster hall probably feels more clam today. i love her
