It's sound graffiti and it feels so good.
Berman's current plan is deceptively simple: "To keep making these different versions of the master Silver Jews album in the sky." On Tanglewood, "How Can I Love You If You Won't Lie Down?" rocks hard but also highlights Berman's tragicomedy: "Time is a game only children play well/ How can I love you if you won't lie down?"
The Mezzanine performance will feature Peyton Pinkerton and William Tyler on guitars — Pinkerton played on 1996's The Natural Bridge, Tyler on 2001's Bright Flight (both Drag City) — Brian Kotzur on drums, Tony Crow on keyboards, and Cassie Berman on bass. Even the lineup gets Berman going. "Peyton is a descendent of William Henry Harrison.... I'm convinced that many of our country's best electric guitarists are the far-flung descendents of mediocre 19th-century American presidents." SFBG
