A short while in the past, I picked up a field of my highschool diaries from the basement of my mother and father’ home. Studying them was fairly humorous. I used to be very dramatic, I used to be very certain of myself. I had a lot of crushes … however it was additionally … sort of … touching. It was a doc of this one that was changing into an individual — and it is a fairly neat factor to have the ability to look again, as an grownup, and really feel some tenderness for that teenage model of you, and see the beginnings of who you are actually.
Alongside together with his humorousness, that sort of tenderness and perspective is essentially the most arresting a part of Tim Heidecker’s newest album, Excessive College. It was largely impressed by his personal highschool recollections, however it is not all concerning the previous — as a result of all these little moments rising up make you who you’re. They carry into your current and your future, too. And let’s be trustworthy: Do you even know who you’re when you’re all grown up?
On this session, Heidecker and I discuss all of that and about how he introduced his music and his comedy work collectively on his latest North American tour. You may additionally hear songs recorded stay on that tour by Heidecker and his Very Good Band.
