Album Notes
Known for setting up DIY recording studios in unexpected spaces, on "Lover, We Lost the War.," Richard Cortez doesn't disappoint. In an improvised space in an industrial warehouse, Cortez recorded five new haunting songs after hours. Playing all the instruments on the project, he ambitiously assumed the roles of songwriter, singer, producer and recording engineer simultaneously. The EP, adorned with five-part harmonies, swells of electric guitar and sparse piano accents, is led by Cortez' rich baritone voice and strong songwriting skill.
