Now maybe everyone is carrying on the spirit of what those bands had when they were young and didn't know better and just fueled by that feeling of creating something new."
New for ASHISS: the kudos it's fielded for its new When Sweet Sleep Returned (Tee Pee), a successful cosmic-cowboy-derived marriage of Floyd and country-fied Byrds, as Saufley describes it, with a drizzle of Revolver-esque pop. Still, he's not sure what to make of the attention. "I haven't stopped aspiring to the dream of making a living doing this. I think someone might sneak through the cracks and break through. Aspirations exist but I do think there's a glorious resignation, like, 'Fuck it, I'm not going to see dollar one, so why not do what I want to do. There is that democratization of music creation: people who are really psyched if you put out a record on your own and make 500 of them. But I do also think people rally around that spirit 'I'm never going to make money, so I'm just going to be prolific and put it out there.' It's the hardcore ethic come to life."
