"It felt like America was starting to go insane, or we were starting to go insane, or probably both. The gorier and more lurid the newspapers got, the harder everyone seemed to be trying to demonstrate how moral, compassionate, and prosperous they were. I had never been further from prosperous, didn’t feel particularly moral, and I started realizing how guilty I’d sometimes been of simply making a show of compassion without actually practicing it. I was starting to get this idea in my head of a record that wasn’t compassionate, wasn’t moral, was openly an inelegant and ugly mess."
Will Sheff, leader d'Okkervil River
