Album Notes
In astrology, the planet Mercury reigns over the areas of communications and technology. When Mercury appears to move backward in the sky -- known as a "Mercury Retrograde" -- these areas tend to go haywire. Misunderstandings ensue, and technology breaks down. It's the bane of writers and system administrators every three months.

Mercury Retrograde is also a time for the past to resurface, and Eponymous 4's Greg Bueno noticed he tended to work on old and forgotten songs during these periods. These songs didn't fit on any of the albums released as part of the Ex Machina Series, and they were too divergent to consider an album itself.

But as a b-side collection? It would work.

So in 2015, the Retrograde Single Series began. Six songs from the Ex Machina Series were released as singles with accompanying tracks that have been collected here under the title "Retrograde Songs".

Similar to the approach taken with "A Ghost in My Shadow", a number of tracks came from old sketches and unfinished demos. Some tracks, such as "Blood Money" and "Wrong Again" were revised to the point where they bore little to no resemblance to their original takes. Other tracks, such as "I'm the Shadow", "Winter Rain" and "Long-Distance Lover" existed only on paper, being recorded for the first time.

"Retrograde Songs", like other Eponymous 4 albums, jumps between styles -- retro '80s, straight-forward rock, even a bit of country.
