Question:
  Why did you guys name the album Alex?

Answer:
  Alex is the name of one of the trees in our back yard. I was sitting outside one day exploring the inner workings of my mind, and the trees started talking to me. There are 6 trees. Alex and Alison are married. They have 3 kids, Frank, Stevie, and Bob.Then there is Angie. Angie is Alex's best friend, but Allison always gets jealous of them and does not like them to be close to each other. Alex is the first tree I met, and given that this was our first album, it seemed approprate.

Question:
  Who are your favorite bands?

Answer:
Cocteau Twins when I'm day-dreaming, David Bowie when I'm blasting off into outer space, Elliott Smith when I'm remembering, Emmylou Harris when I'm going back home, Joy Division when I'm marching into the fires, Leonard Cohen when I run out of words, Motorama when I'm a teenager, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds when there's a piano to destroy, Patti Smith when I'm free, Radiohead when I'm jumping into a spiritual vortex, The Rolling Stones when I'm dancing, Tom Waits when I'm treading the mental swamps, Townes Van Zandt when I'm taking in the infinite nights
-Jae


Right now I don't think anyone can compete with Radiohead. I rarely go a day without listening to them. But I also enjoy: MGMT, John Lennon, Pink Floyd, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Rolling Stones, Blonde Redhead, Bright Eyes, The Dutchess And The Duke, Elbow, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Explosions In The Sky, Muse, Death Cab For Cutie, Phantom Planet, Vast, and many, many more. Music is the key to a very important door.

Question:
  How is life in Austin, TX?
Full Question: "Hey just started following you guys on twitter, digging the tunes. How is life in Austin, TX? I'm considering moving there." - Hijack The Airwaves

Answer:
Thanks for the follow and the compliment! We love it here in Austin. There is a lot of nature, awesome down to earth people, a million things to do, tons of live music, and an overall amazing culture. We have lived in several cities across the western US and we both agree that Austin is by far the best. If you move here, you won't regret it!
