。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。。

After making 3 or 4 very maximalist and multilayered
albums I wanted to make a very simple acoustic
album and set myself a few rules. No click track,
no MIDI instruments and most importantly of all,
no drums or rhythms of any kind. It was a very
comfortable recording experience using just one
USB mic and my laptop to record all of these songs.

I sent three of them off to Terrill and I think the piano
layers he sent back are some of the most beautiful
performances he's ever done on a Nature's Neighbor
album.

I reconnected with Daniel Lee in a big way on this
album as well. Visiting his home in Oak Park we
sat down and played acoustic guitars just as we had
back when we lived together in 2010 and 2011.

During the mixing and mastering process Seth and I
dumped all of the songs onto a 4-track tape recorder
and then dumped them back into Protools so that the
masters would have more of an analogue hiss to them.
We struggled with it for a while but eventually got the
sound we wanted.

This is a simple album of simple songs. I guess that I
wanted to see if I could still make a good album with
just a guitar, piano and my words.
