Mishka Shubaly: William Carlos Whitten is criminally under-sung, one of the best rock writers working today. As the driving force behind grimy NYC bands St. Johnny and Grand Mal, Whitten is fluent in both capital-L literature and nihilistic rock 'n roll hedonism. Intelligence can kill or at least cool an otherwise hot rock 'n roll number (see: The Decemberists) but Whitten is a master of the form, he knows that no amount of literature will transform our humanity's primitive nature. We want to get laid, we want to be loved, we want to be held closely and told that we're never going to die, we want to die, and we want it all to unfold to a mournful, swaggering backbeat. Burn My Letters could not be more aptly titled, as this album is an erotic rock and roll love letter to yearning, to mourning, to hope, and to despair.

The Idiot meets Emergency Kisses.

Mastered by Dave Friedmann (Flaming Lips/Mercury Rev/Weezer/Sparklehorse) at Tarbox Road Studios.

Track Name: Burn My Letters
It was your emptiness that appealed to me
And your hair the color of tarnished cutlery
She said burn my letters
A heart leaves fingerprints
Burn my letters
Baby I love you with a wild desire
She parts her lips, I touch her hair
She said burn my letters
A heart leaves fingerprints
Burn my letters
To love is to divest
Of all that I possess
I'm a beggar now, now I'll go beg go for more
Watch
Watch the night tremble, this City can only love itself
She said burn my letters
A heart leaves fingerprints
Burn my letters
Track Name: The Cinema
cinema's true, life is a lie
we eat our popcorn then we cry
it takes a single kiss
to destroy happiness

words spoken at the swerve of dawn
we believe in love even when it's wrong
what will become of us
