More Info:

Around the making of Mouthfuls, Fruit Bats had coalesced into a duo with Gillian Lis e and myself. It was sort of like our own mini cocaine-free version of Rumors. She wrote the bridge to ‘Magic Hour,’ which is totally about her. We also cowrote ‘Track Rabbits’ together which is still one of my favorite things I’ve ever done and probably my favorite song on Mouthfuls.’ ‘I wrote ‘When U Love Somebody’ at the very last minute right before we started to record. It was kind of the throwaway track, which of course became by far the most popular song on the album and still probably the most popular Fruit Bats song, I was just trying to make something that sounded like Ray Davies, or even more specifically The Beatles’ ‘Two of Us.’ Also, I spelled ‘you’ with a ‘U’ to reference Prince. People still like dancing to this one. https://open.spotify.com/album/09KwHJAnHnpbTWJv6mF3wx?si=z1HXQCsHT3mg5-TK3PrVMg Tracks: Rainbow Sign / A Bit Of Wind / Magic Hour / The Little Acorn / Track Rabbits / Union Blanket / Lazy Eye / Slipping Through The Sensors / Seaweed / When U Love Somebody
