On an intense episode of MFA, Bluejuice frontman Jake Stone joins me to reveal his passion for the self-titled debut album from Ben Folds Five - an album Jake says has inspired almost every song he’s written since.
We talk about how the album got him back into piano playing, what “cool” meant in the 90s and why Folds didn’t fit it, whether BFF were more emotionally honest than grunge bands, what kind of music is best to dance to when you’re coping with anxiety and depression, writing about infidelity, the different types of love you can have for a band and why Jake would prefer not to be himself.
