“This is our punk record,” says Ezra Furman, introducing his new album Twelve Nudes, yet another incendiary and inspiring classic from the artist.
“We made it in Oakland, quickly," continued Furman. "We drank and smoked. Then we made the loud parts louder. I hurt my voice screaming. This was back in 2018, when things were bad in the world. The songs are naked with nothing to hide.”
Immediate proof is offered by “Calm Down aka I Should Not Be Alone,” the album’s insanely catchy opening track and lead single, bound up in a compact two minutes and 22 seconds.
