HID- What's your favorite track off your new album "1984"?
Tim Kinsella- "I couldn’t say I have a favorite cuz I really love all Melina’s songs, but I do feel like when Punk Kid came together I thought “I smell a hit!” In a way that songs don’t often make me feel. Layering the two instrumentals was also very fun."

HID- Whats's your favorite song to currently play live?
Tim Kinsella- "Our live set is definitely about momentum and sequencing and the energy of each song charging to the next. And, even on a structural level the songs are a lot different than each other, different modes. So I couldn’t really pick a favorite, it’s like how yellow depends on purple to look yellow, you know?"

HID- Whats the best part about being on the road? Whats the worst?
Tim Kinsella- "Best part is my band-mates. We all have a very good time together. And it’s great seeing old friends everywhere. Worst part is definitely money. It’s very tricky to sustain this at the level we operate on."

HID- What's your go to album right now and why?
Tim Kinsella- "I actually went thru an Injury Reserve phase a few months ago. They’re Detroit guys I think, right? My go to album forever is Arnold Dreyblatt Propellers in Love. My go to Spotify move is the L.I.E.S. Playlist on shuffle cuz it’s good for running and for reading, but I end up skipping a third of the tracks.
