Feeling pensive? Intellectual? Emotionally torn? Professors find it so important to pose those uber-helpful rhetorical questions during a rigorous lecture. This mix will attempt the same. Why are artists so inquisitive? Side A boasts a collection of songs doubling as meditative questions. These queries are real thinkers, so take your time conceiving your answers. Side B features a variety of NO answers. Do the titles reflect some sort of Freudian connection of indie rock and the notion of questioning in the larger sense? I have no idea, but enjoy your contemplation.
