about

All songs written by yers truly except for "Electro", written by Dave Sea and originally performed by Dave & The Strange.

- Tracks 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 9 were recorded between February and October 2013 at the Playhouse in Washington, DC. The rest were done in my bedroom back in NC.

- All songs were recorded using a Fostex MR-8 (with the exception of Through My Window... which was done with a Tascam 488 MKII) and mastered using Sony Acid 7. The only thing I used the program for was adjusting the levels of each instrument... no pitch correction, quantization, or any of that bullshit. Enjoy.
