Ten years ago, The Graduate released Anhedonia. I don’t think there was a more important and influential album for me and my friends at the time. It came from central Illinois, just like us, but this record felt so much bigger than our towns, our state, even the midwest. It shaped how I think about every instrument I play and every song I work on. A decade later, I still compare all of my own bass lines to “Sit and Sink,” and mine are never quite as cool.
