The Human Excuse is Justin Marc Lloyd, formerly of Baltimore, MD, now residing in Chicago, IL. Justin stopped playing shows as The Human Excuse after the third release, stating that the songs he was writing were "way too reliant on post-production. Plus, I sound like a total whining wiener sitting on a stool strumming a guitar by myself. If I ever played live, it would have to be one of those things where I get a bunch of people to play with, a backing track with all the field recordings and other noises, and someone to handle all of the processing on my vocals. Basically, I'm shedding some of the abstract and atonal textural elements so that the melodies, dynamics, and sentimental vibes shine through more. For now, anyway."
The Human Excuse's tunes can be anywhere from no song at all, to saccharine acoustic guitar-based songs that are saturated in effects, or at least have been handed over to someone with a lot of weed and a copy of Logic Pro. Justin sings and plays acoustic guitar in most of the songs. But don't let this scare you. This isn't Jack Johnson or Dashboard Confessional. Well, maybe some of the music will remind you of Dashboard, but you'll have to bathe in a few layers of psychedelia, blurred memories, or busted machinery to hear it.
A lot of THE's songs are made for those who used to listen to second-wave emo bands in their teens. A lot of them are for noise fans who don't hate melody and tunes that give you funny feelings in your tummies. All of these songs are made BY someone who did and does fit into both of those categories.
