Funny he should mention the late '60s, given the way After and Before nods to the late '70s and the '80s. When I broach that subject, he tells me how much he's been influenced by the Baroque and Romantic periods of classical music. "It's like everything's connected. We divide things by decades, just because that makes it easier for us. What are these decades and days and years? The sun goes up and the sun goes down. You listen to the '90s, and sometimes you're like, 'Wait a second, that sounds like '80s!' There are these transitions, and I think that's what we're waiting for now. Some people are like, 'What's now?' "
