Since 2001, Fruit Bats' Eric Johnson has proven time and time again why he has become one of the 21st Century's most revered songwriters. After a brief "retirement" where he released music under his own name - 2014's excellent EDJ - Johnson has revived the Fruit Bats name and delivered Absolute Loser, one of the strongest and most personal albums of his career.
Before his recent show here in Washington, DC, Johnson stopped by the basement to talk about his new record, the worth of a name, almost two decades in the constantly shifting music industry, and much, much more.
Dig it. Dig it the most.
