Interview w/ Heartbreak Trail

Great interview with Jason Schneider.

UPDATE:  I was particularly struck by Henry's answer to this question, which reinforces some of my own feelings about the album…

JS: The album title can be interpreted in a lot of ways too, especially now that you’re ensconced in L.A.

JH: It was just a phrase that I instinctively responded to and I instinctively believed was a connecting piece. But I don’t think it’s a stretch to think that characters in these songs are stuck somewhere and they’re trying to imagine a future that they can embody. So, the idea of looking to the stars, looking to the heavens and trying to imagine part of your life that hasn’t happened yet; thinking that if I can imagine it then I can live it, and trying to render something mortal from something ethereal, is a very human impulse.
