John K. Samson – “When I Write My Master’s Thesis”

John K. Samson
I’ve never exactly been a massive fan of the Weakerthans, but the upcoming John K. Samson album, Provincial, is sounding pretty great. Just listen to the excellent first single “When I Write My Master’s Thesis,” which blends a gritty rock arrangement with heartbreaking lyrical details about playing video games and how much graduate school sucks. I’ve thought periodically about going back to school to do a master’s degree in journalism, and this is making it sound like a pretty bad idea.

I’ve written about Samson’s album for Exclaim! a couple of times.
