about

A collection of recordings from July-September, 2016 recorded in several rooms in my parents house and my dorm room.

I really thought I'd be dissatisfied with this but considering everything, I'm actually really happy with how this all turned out and I want to say a lot about it but I'm afraid that'd be tacky.

I wanted to call it "Is This Turning On? Has This Been Before?" after misheard Yo La Tengo lyrics in "Ohm" but after coming across a concept drawing for Action Office drawn by some Herman Miller employee in 1964 or 1965 in this book I bought called Sixties Design, I decided against a YLT reference for the second year in a row (in favor of a reference to another band, for the second year in a row) and decided to make the drawing the cover since it reminds me of Akira.

I really thought I'd miss the summer deadline.

Track Name: Any Given Day Pt. 1
Let's take our fortunes and leave, albeit gingerly
You know I don't want to aggrieve, and I don't want eyes on me

My brazen lack of brevity, amazes even me
Cut to the chase, with the agility of a tree

And I'll run the Autobahn, I'll do whatever I need to do.
Ex-Westerners are our main export, in the cafés of the world sipping tea for sport

Scenes, latrines, and magazines, and whatever else I want
Is the resolve to be thorough, and every paperback from Burroughs

Any given day, could slip off the causeway
And sink back to the mud, which we rose from

Scenes, latrines, and magazines, and whatever else I want
Is the resolve to be thorough, and every paperback from Burroughs

And I'll run the Autobahn, I'll do whatever I need to do.
Ex-Westerners are our main export, in the cafés of the world sipping tea for sport
