Jaafar and Faulkner have a natural camaraderie. When crafting songs, Jaafar first creates the structure and then works with Faulkner on the melodies before they bring the piece to the rest of the band.

Their alliance is strongly felt in the song "Big Casino," as they sing together like a sideshow huckster with a handlebar moustache harmonizing with his ratty sequined leotard and feather headdress clad assistant. But these songs, mystically infused with smoke and shadow, contrast with Jaafar and Faulkner's warm and goofy personalities."We are working more on dynamics rather than just playing loud all the time," says Faulkner. "It used to be fun to just be really loud, but now it is more technical."

"What will always inspire me is characters in weird situations, bizarre scenarios, things like old medical practices then placing myself in the story. What if I were the doctor?" Jaafar explains. "One of our songs ['The Reach'] is about a woman who promises her dying husband that she'll wait for him to re animate after his death. Then he comes back as a zombie and finds out that she cheated on him! And he kills her!"

We are assembled to talk about Zombie Season's debut full length album, Our Living Funeral, which was released last fall. This lush recording is filled with tales of longing, frustration, and a why don't you love me style sorrow. Many of the songs are created as vignettes, painted in sepia tones, and given life through characters created by Jaafar. This unique approach to songwriting is born from Jaafar and Faulkner's literary backgrounds: Jaafar served Prada Sunglasses Price as the editor in chief of the U of M's alternative magazine, The Wake, and Faulkner has a BA in creative writing from Clickkeyword[Macalester+College]" >Macalester.

Jaafar's voice is black velvet smooth, alternatively infused with an aching whisper, a frustrated tremble, and an epic roar. Zombie Season's songs are reminiscent of Clickkeyword[DeVotchKa]" >DeVotchKa in both vocal quality and the hybrid nature of the music is an old time Western jangle in their songs, along with strains of Clickkeyword[Joy+Division]" >Joy Division.

towards writing a song about a nomadic group dying out rather than saying, 'I am sad.'" The nomads he speaks of show up in "Clickkeyword[Desert+Moon+Holdings+Corp.]" >Desert Moon," where Jaafar sings: "We'll make this wasteland our only home/We'll comb the outskirts for some kind of warmth/We'll find the vestments of our brother's corpse/Keep as protection from something worse."

"I wanted a hollow body guitar, and I had wanted one for a long time, but I wanted a cheap one. I found this really cool and nice one on Craig's List and went to pick it up in a weird suburb at an antique store I remember being called something like Annie's Backdoor," Jaafar says, laughing. "I got the owner (presumably Annie) to trade 75 percent of the cost of the guitar for an old banjo I had, which I had originally traded some speakers for. Oh no now you are going to get an angry email from Annie It's not called Annie's Backdoor, it's called Annie's Upperdeck!'"

It turns out many of Zombie Season's instruments were obtained this way.
