Rocky Votolato

Some days, you just want the rain to fall so you can read a good book against a water-stained window. You’ve got a cup of tea in hand and Rocky Votolato is on the speakers. Straight outta Tumblr is what this life is, and it’s mostly legitimate because of Rocky Votolato, who–besides his musical resemblance to Paul Simon (god to some hipsters; member of Simon N Garfunkel)–has a knack for writing about deep topics like trauma, overcoming depression, and spiritual longing. These themes appear on his latest solo album, Hospital Handshakes, which–for the Death Cab for Cutie fans out there–also features Chris Walla.
