AUDIO: J. Ethan Zed – “Pay My Bills, Buy My Lunch”

J. Ethan Zed is the solo folk project of dreamy rock act Angry Fix’s bassist Jeremy Zelman. He’s out with his debut album and it deals largely with everyday life in late-stage capitalism. Being a creative who’s forced to engage with a lifestyle of mindless work culture and exploitative systems is a challenge that we all face on the daily and quite frankly it’s exhausting. Zed’s intimate, genuine storytelling welcomes us to gather like a campfire circle (hence the cover art) and bond with one another over shared grievances of wanting to create but needing to work. “Pay My Bills, Buy My Lunch” charmingly encourages us to have faith in one another and not the powers that hold us down.
