These tracks, like many others, were all recorded while high on Ambien. Not much memory. They were recorded all over the country. From Portland, OR, to New Orleans, to Boston, to Lincoln, Nebraska, and God knows where else. Oh yeah, Death Valley too. The titles were made up on the spot without any second thought. However, one exception in regards to "Sick Day", which was a song for Jamie Stewart of Xiu Xiu. The opening line of the track "This was cute, not it is crazy" was scribbled on the back of an envelope holding legal binding documents by him when we were collaborating. i don't think he ever heard the song come to think of it. Many songs are as raw as can be. This was one of the only times I utilized my raspy voice in recording. I don't remember any of it honestly though. Most of the words - they either mean something or not. Dream theory. Thanks for listening! xoxox C.F.S.
