Jay Maas of Defeater
2010 was very literally the best year of my life. I Toured Europe, lived in Australia for a month recording bands, played sxsw for the first time, wrote and recorded what I think will be the best Defeater record yet, AND to top it off asked a girl to marry me and she actually even said yes!
This is just a quick list of the music that kept me company all year long. Fond memories of walking the streets of Melbourne Australia blasting The Felix Culpa, being in my studio with Make do and Mend for weeks recording crazy leads and cello players with crazier names, and long late drives on tour listening to Rocky V. 2011 has a lot to live up to!
