Album Notes
“We set out to make something very different! We thought this was going to be a collection of our sweeter songs, however we got an EP of dark earthy music. I love it. Carbone found a strong current running through several of our other songs, we followed him down a rabbit hole and I’m glad we did. In these songs there's yearning for clarity, there’s regret for things done, there’s awe at the pace of life and the sweep of time. We aren’t greenhorns (“this ain’t my first rodeo"), and we aren’t elders or masters yet (“I wanna know what my soul is worth”) and we’re trying to be real with who we are and where we’re at. I feel good about how these six songs fit together with each other, it will be interesting to see how they reverberate with the songs in the other two EPs.” – Nat Keefe

“ This EP was an exercise in letting go. We went in thinking we were going to record a few down-tempo acoustic tunes, the kind you'd hear us playing for an acoustic encore, or on somebody's porch. Tim steered us in a different direction, went for some of the darker outliers among the twenty or so songs we sent him and pushed us to make what you now have before you, a kind of meeting place for our highs and lows. I think it's some of the best music we've made so far.” – Erik Yates
