2014 wrap-up | Clicks of past, present and future

Happy Holidays from Portland, friends. It’s come that time of year again, when I try to get my head around the year that’s ending. A time when I re-read these posts from the end of 2011, 2012 and 2013 and remember what a fool I was in the past, every moment until today. Gosh, past Angela was sure ignorant and silly, wasn’t she? Glad that’s all over.

We had the honor of being interviewed on the Destination DIY podcast! It is a really fun one. We talk about DIYing, and Kickstarter, and that fun stuff, and also The Worst Thing we’ve ever made, touring highs and lows, sexism and trust in the music industry…many, many things. Aubrey also talks a lot in this one, if you’re ever hoping for more Aubrey, this is the show for you!

It’s been a cool couple days in Doublelicks-land, link-wise. We keep a running list of press mentions on our press page, but these are cool and note a specific mention:

Superfan note: If you go to these posts and leave a comment about the article, or even just visit, the spike in interest makes The Doubleclicks & our fans look good, and might make them want to cover us again! As a former journalist, I can say that this actually sometimes works.

We are featured on two tracks: Ana Ng (by They Might Be Giants) and My Eyes (from Dr. Horrible).
