On "Surfer Girl"
I am enjoying your musical newsletters, Austin! I love thinking about what music inspires and influences new great musicians and composers (such as yourself). People don't talk enough about the importance of what you listen to as a writer/composer. Input influences output. :)
“In my room” is one of my favorites. I think that I love my room just as much as Brian Wilson liked his room. It’s my favorite place. And I know it deserves those Bachish Jazzy harmonies.
