my favorite. i remember when i was first playing around with the intro to the song. it was all i had written, but i kept playing it over and over, waiting for it to turn into something. this would have been...i don't know, in 2006 sometime. i was playing it in soundcheck on a dolls tour. i was playing it at home. i was recording with ...and you will know us by the trail of dead in austin. there was a big old concert grand piano in the studio and i was playing the "astronaut" intro. which was still all i had, just those YA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA bangs. and conrad, the singer from trail of dead, was listening from the other room and called out "is that yours?" and i called back "yep, but it hasn't gone anywhere yet" and he called back "it's going to be a good one" and i called back "i know, dude." sometime i want to make a whole record with that guy.
My guitarist/synthist & horn arranger/conductor Chad Raines just put out an album. If you've seen us on tour, you know this: The sweet sounds of THE SIMPLE PLEASURE will make you dance your ass off!! Amanda Palmer
Kim and I go way back. She's played shows with me all over the world, and I was on a 7" record she Kickstarter'd a few years ago. Her new album is an electro-space-pop love letter to the cosmos. Amanda Palmer

My best friend from high school introduced me to Evelyn Evelyn. They now live across the country. Listening to this makes me think of all the times we sang Elephant Elephant together at the top of our lungs in their car. We really like elephants. nicroth1220
