"The concept of love is actually pretty easy; allowing yourself to love is very difficult and the part that people seem to have problems with as their fears control their lives. That needs to be transcended. It's worth applying effort -- not to fix somebody else, but to fix yourself in pursuit of that ability to love and to allow yourself to be loved." - Jeff Tweedy, Wilco
"A lot of the record has to do with trying to step back and take the little things as they are. The idea of getting carried away with little things is something that I was definitely prone to over a certain period of my life and other people I know have been fairly dramatic with things they could just let go." - Alec Ounsworth, Clap Your Hands And Say Yeah
"Writing American Goldwing felt ... like being pinned beneath a giant motorcycle, and its vision is that inescapable past, those feelings of being trapped in a small town, that fine line between the rural and the suburban settings that define much of America, that line between love and loss that occurs when you find yourself 'taking it easy too long / sticking around this lonesome town.'" - Eric Earley, Blitzen Trapper
