The Soundtrack to Postgraduate Unemployment
As yet another friend back at school asked what graduating is like, the idea dawned upon me to capture the sounds of this fascinating postgrad summer in the form of a 14-track album! I can’t currently fund the recording and production myself for these songs I’d like to write (see: first sentence), but you can!The clear voice-of-a-generation-like potential is obvious from the following rough outline of the album, which I assume will open your wallets so hard they’ll pull a… something wallets have.
1. Interviewin’
This upbeat, pop-y opener is about fresh-faced optimism and also how a bachelor’s degree doesn’t necessarily qualify you to take someone’s phone messages.


2. I Never Learned To Feed Myself feat. Pasta, Mostly
This upbeat, pop-y second track is about fresh-faced optimism about the nutritional value in Pop-Tarts and beer. 


3. Moving Back Home
I feel like this is far enough along to get a little personal.

Sample Lyric: Maybe I’d mope less if I didn’t have to live / On the couch / On the couch / On the couch / Shut up, Mom

4. Entry Level Unpaid
Sample Lyric: 3+ yrs. / Exp. / Req. (Like techno-y? Something that’d communicate the repetitive, infuriating nature of this phrase, and also techno.)


5. How Do You Meet People Now feat. All Of My Exes (Remix)
I envision this as a “Mambo No. 5” for the generation that isn’t afraid to admit desperation. Eventually someone will find it endearing. Keep reading.
