Kansas City, KS - A bestpectacled and bearded Graham Zusi stated emphatically that, "I prefer the aesthetics of 'Live At Jittery Joes' over the polished feel of 'In The Aeroplane Over The Sea,' as he commented on the legacy of legendary band Neutral Milk Hotel during a wide ranging interview on Monday.
As Zusi took an unpopular opinion about the legacy of Jeff Mangum's passion project, he artfully pulled off his glasses and gesticulated wildly as he spoke at length about a variety of intersecting thoughts.
"Peter really has us play like we are recording Avery Island, which is to say very gritty and very committed to the process. We take influence from the intersection of nature and the thoughts of what Mangum meant when he sings, 'With their hearts hanging open all over the sheets,' from A Baby for Pree. I mean, I feel like that isn't so much an observation as it is a dialectical method indicating contra-knowledge sharing and the gegenpress."
Family say that Zusi spent the last 3 months of the MLS offseason locked in his bedroom repeatedly listening to In The Aeroplane Over The Sea as he started a pastiche art project of newspaper clippings.
"He hasn't been the same since he told me that the music was speaking to him," stated Peter Vermes. "I was really hoping he meant in a way that made him excel at he beep test."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Zusi announces his application of Zoroastrian imagery in his new art project, "out wide with the ball at my feet".
