These songs were written and recorded over the past 8 months in my bedroom by me with the occasional vocal overdubs of my partner Jonny. Inspired by the DIY ethic (and non-budget) of my friends in previous band Gary Supply, corners were cut in the name of having fun and staying in the moment. I plugged my guitar with a 1/4” cable right into ableton, and used it as both guitar and bass, sequenced drums in ableton and frankensteined songs piece by piece.
My partner Jonny was a huge inspiration and this project wouldn’t have happened without them. As far as musical influences I was listening to R.E.M, Hole, Guided By Voices, also Face The Music and Cindarula on SoundCloud a lot at the time. I think you can hear these bands in there, also I think playing guitar for Pdx ripper Nick Normal definitely shaped the way I write and inspired me to keep rocking. Lastly I think my neighborhood as well, Hazelwood and everything east of 122nd where I grew up and live is the backdrop I imagine for the music.
