ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
water is our nature, yet we make our decisions from the land... politics adds distortion, distancing us from our better selves. 'progress' is too often at our own expense... politics and music, like oil and water, don't always mix. these tunes overflowed and spilled onto separate discs... hopefully the music rises

produced by mike carnahan (sf band the green door) and arnaz raj
recorded and engineered by mike carnahan at carnymusic recording (tenderloin)
and the workshop (the avenues) san francisco california

WATER
1) highway 1 (2:16) -- an unfolding story up the coastline
2) blues to get home (6:35) -- driving north from la on the winter solstice
3) keep it real (3:40) -- another prayer for southern california
4) music from above (5:18) -- journal notes from a summer in the mountains
5) speed (4:37) -- a brief glimpse at the intersection of space and time
6) austin (6:34) -- distant imaginings of an imaginary traveling songwriter
7) mystified (2:54) -- finding a latte and losing your soul in mill valley
8) northern line (6:27) -- train north to alaska! toward auroras and opportunity
9) in suspect terrain (5:51) -- requiem and tribute for amy winehouse, bob dylan, joaquin phoenix, john mcphee and the san andreas fault

OIL

3) headlands (buffalo dreams) (5:52) -- visions of changing wilderness in another summer of love
4) climate of denial (8:33) -- postcard for the planet!
5) ghost town (4:29) -- for the buddha of the forbidden zone, who stood up when the world let him down
6) leap of faith (5:32) -- to stare at the ceiling or reach for the stars?
7) for whatever it's worth / rules of disengagement (5:54) -- all politics is personal (occupy this!)
