“Post Apocalyptic Blues” is a light hearted romp, it’s a rootsy country folk dancey vibe exploring a kind of “It’s the end of the world as we know it” theme. I guess, if i had to pigeon hole it, I might have been thinking a little about Mississippi John Hurt and The Kinks and possibly contemplating a big New Orleans trombone part. The song was originally a kind of a “there goes the neighborhood” lament over one of our favourite diners in our neighborhood getting shut down. I had a lot of lyrics about greasy food initially, but when we started working it out in the studio, it just seemed too greasy food oriented so Jay and I teased out a bunch of apocalyptic related stuff related to the end of the world and possibly the end of a relationship and unrequited love. — Chris Isom
