about

This album was cobbled together from miscellaneous songs I did over the whole year of 2015. A bunch of unpleasant stuff happened that year, and for a while I'd even given up writing and recording and couldn't see a way out of not doing it any more.

The crazy thing about art is that, if you're an artist, it matters less how people receive it, and more that you do it. You have to, you're almost indebted somehow to do it. It may not even be good, but you feel driven to create. That's how I feel, for sure. I have no idea if any of it actually good for anything. It's more about saying what you want to say on your own terms. And I feel that this album, more so than anything I've done, does that. There is less of the cartoonish Southern Gothic lyrical fodder here (not that there is anything wrong with that), and more realism. There isn't really a fictitious song in the bunch. Some of it is subversively political or spiritual, but it's all honest.
