THE TUSK: I guess I wanted to ask you first to just tell the story of how this project came to be.
SABHLOK: Sure. I guess it started a few years ago, this guy Sufjan Stevens said he was going to do an album for every state or something. And I just thought it was awesome, you know? And then I found out he wasn’t going to do it. I’m like, You know what, I’m just gonna do it then, something like that. ‘Cause it’s good to get a lot of music, y’know? If somebody can pull it off. So that kind of started it, and me and the guys were just kind of joking around, and I said I had a shit load of songs and let’s record them all. So that’s kind of, I think, what sparked it. And I was just traveling around the country for about six months and just wrote a bunch. And I came back and we did it. So I think that’s about it.
