    When I Talk To You is informed by both the sonic code of 1970s punk and the songwriting of pop records spanning many decades. The album ties 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. Recorded in 2010 by Mattew Smith of Outrageous Cherry, the album saw a cassette release on Gold Tapes back in 2011.

see the girl with the sunglasses ‘round her eyes the world to her is darker it’s no surprise and oh, mary mary, i think that you read into my mind you’ve done it two or three times now you do it all the time if you see that my eyes have erupted into flames you can bet my heart and body have done the same ‘cause what i see in front of me is what i want and right now that is you you may not want to hear it but you know you know it’s true did it once girl, i can’t leave you alone we did it twice girl, everyone heard you here’s the part where our parts and worlds will collide i’ll cut class and you’ll cut your foot on broken glass then you’ll get drunk at 3am and call somebody the apartment’s filthy, and our neighbors start to worry did it once girl, i can’t leave you alone we did it twice girl, and i think you’re crazy we did it twice girl, everyone heard you then it’s over and we got in a fight then you go for the door, and when you said “goodnight” that’s a slip from the whip that God gave you you said “just leave me alone” but i’ve got nowhere to go

about

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.
