A collection of mostly ephemeral songs recorded between 2008-12 in such various places as a kitchen floor, a warehouse, a barn, a sick bed, the Chicago Public Library, and so on. Many of the songs were completely improvised (tracks 2, 3, 7, 10, 14, 16, 20, 21) and many more have never been performed publicly.

Production values? Pretty low. Intimacy and candor? Dizzyingly high.

Keep an ear out for Cockney workmen teasing each other, crickets doing their evening stuff, a toaster dinging, my dad giggling, and many other goofy bits & pieces.
