Ep 178: "Sweet Pretender, Who Are You"

The Telephone Numbers, whose debut album Ballad of Doug (Paisley Shirt bandcamp) offers reprieve from cynicism with soaring tales about loving music with a passion, even-- especially?-- when it cannot entirely hold your own darkness at bay.

Episode title is from The Telephone Numbers song "Oh, Pretender."
