    Never could get into The Wonder Years, but I enjoy this quite a bit.

    If you haven't yet, you need to listen to his cover of The Weakerthans' track, "My Favorite Chords".

    I feel like We Don't Have Each Other was much hyped before release but since has become unfairly maligned. It's a great listen, especially this time of year.

    "Grapefruit" is a fucking heartbreaking song, especially for anyone who has ever experienced pregnancy loss and the emotional consequences that can come along with it, both personally and within a relationship.

    The albums was one of my favorites for that year. The songs translate well live too. The full band appearance last December was one of my favorite shows Dan has been apart.

    I'd love a new album. I never really listened to those three songs he put out because I rarely ever want to listen to just three songs.

    That's kind of confusing, but to each his own.

    I just don't enjoy listening to three songs at a time. It's why I rarely give b-sides or really small EP's much time unless they're one of my favourite bands unless there's like 10 or so I can bundle together.

    So singles are out of the question then?

    But they're arguably the three best Aaron West songs!

    Memories are nice, but that's all they are. Prestigious

    Yeah, those three songs are really good and you're completely missing out not listening to them.

    Excited to see what's next for him.

    I usually listen to singles once when they come out to get an idea of what the album's going to be like and then wait for the album. I very rarely listen to standalone singles.
  13. I remember Dan saying something about how the EP connects the first Aaron West LP to the second. We Don't Have Each Other is fantastic, I still listen to it fairly often, and I'm really hoping we get an LP2 announcement tomorrow.

    I'm just glad that if this is LP2 then we won't be getting it in July. That first album got heavy listens during the fall and winter months.

    The live version of 67 Cherry Red on the My Favourite Chords single is amazing.

    I'm shocked to hear someone say 'We Don't Have Eachother' is maligned, I absolutely love the record. I guess I just never heard too much negativity about it. I think you have to be in the right headspace going into it, but it is beautiful and heartbreaking. The front half of the album beats you down, but the back half is inspiring.

    I would love nothing more than to have the second album announced today, hopefully with a release not too far out.

    Yep, I agree completely. I usually listen a couple times but I never go back to short EPs or anything much. I'd rather listen to a full album.

    i thought this was going to be kind of a one-off thing benefitting from the TWY hype and lose traction quickly, but glad to see it still going strong. love everything he's put out so far. i remember when i interviewed him and he said he was having some trouble putting the story together, so i'm curious to see how it progresses from where it stopped.

    What's everyone think of the new track?
  23. I think it's great. I am curious whether this will be on the next album or if it's another bridge between the two like the Bittersweet EP.

    I also really like it. Kind of hope this is just an appetizer of what’s to come instead of being the first single off the new album/EP.
  25. I really love the new track. This is exactly what I’d want from LP2.
