This album was my big dumb, heartbroken, masterpiece. It took three years to write, record, and release. Then I signed an ill fated record deal in 2010 and they asked me to remove all of my existing content from the web. I probably haven’t listened to it since then. I put it on the other night and realized it’s pretty great. A little rough here and there, mostly cause I played all the instruments, including the drums, but it’s quirky, stumbly, loose, and also heartfelt and good. Now it’s back. I hope you enjoy it.
