NO DEPRESSION EDITOR’S NOTE: With the production and release of our summer print journal, which explores a theme we call (Im)migration, we’ve been thinking a lot lately about how music and people move through our world. Evidently, David Olney had similar things on his mind as he created his latest album, This Side or the Other, which comes out Friday, Aug. 24, 2018. The album has plenty to say about walls and separation and division, but we asked him to share a little more of his thoughts on the subject for our readers. At the end of his essay, be sure to check out his video for the album’s title track, co-written with John Hadley and Anne McCue, who also contributes harmony vocals to this haunting track.
