I've been working on this album for 5 years. In the meantime, I've moved from Los Angeles to Chicago to Telluride to Portland, back to Telluride and now I'm in the process of moving back to Chicago. I've also released a variety of other projects exploring a variety of other styles. I think that this restlessness is reflected in the songs on this album. Most of the songs are ruminations on my general dissatisfaction with the current direction of the Western world and the manufactured boredom it peddles to it's denizens. A few are sketches of some of the characters of this tragic comedy. Others attempt to suggest solutions to this quagmire, both personal and political. A week ago I decided to release it now, as is. K-Kruz and I have spent the last few days making last minute tweaks and adjustments to the tracks. In no way do I feel that it is finished, but I'm not sure that I would ever feel that way. I can say that working on these songs has given me a greater sense of purpose and a renewed faith in...myself? humanity? music? I don't expect them to do the same for you, but maybe they make you smile, think, move or feel and that alone would be a great reward for me.
Oh! A few of these tracks have been featured on MTV's Jersey Shore and 10 on Top, which I am grateful for.
