Josh Evert and The Fatty Acids return from a four-year break in recording to release “Dogs of Entertainment” this Friday at Anodyne Walker’s Point Roastery.
We spoke with Evert recently about growing up with music, liver and onions, Weird Al, and more.
Justin Barney: So, the new album is called Near to the Wild Heart of Life. Could you explain the title of it?
Brian King: The title comes from a book by James Joyce, it’s a line in the book, and I actually first heard it from a different that took the title from that line by Clarice Lispector, and then I discovered it came from the James Joyce book and read that book. The influence of those books end with that line, but that was one of those great lines that was really inspiring for me and it really summed up the spirit of the songs.
JB: How would you say you manage to capture that spirit while writing?
BK: I don’t even know if I can answer that question. From the very beginning we’ve always just felt compelled to write about certain things in a certain way. That was not terribly original necessary, because we got that idea from a lot of our favorite bands from the past, but when it came time to make our own music it just felt like the natural thing to do, and the thing that we felt like we could do the best. It never really occurred to us to try and make a really sad record because it just wouldn’t be natural to us. [Our music] is a reflection of our personalities and a reflection of our music taste.
