When I Talk To You is informed by both the sonic code of 1970s punk and the songwriting of pop records spanning many decades. Composed during tremendous change taking place in Glendening’s life, the album tracks tie together topics of queer identity, loss, unrequited desire, and social anxiety; musically, the band sits at the intersection of artists like Wire and Jan & Dean, X and The Four Seasons, The Replacements and Petula Clark. The song “See You All The Time,” with its themes of casual unease, was written during Glendening’s total immersion in The Byrds’ Younger Than Yesterday, and complimented by his desire to write a complete pop song in under three minutes -- an ethos similarly echoed on the album in songs like “Body Shakes,” which clocks in at well under two.
When I Talk To You was released on cassette (Gold Tapes) in 2011.
In July 2017, Glad Fact released the album on LP.
