about

We will admit that we have personal problems with perfection - it bothers us. We don't always like polish and we can't stand excess. Instead, we tend to prefer raw, rude sounds with a human touch. Our favorite things have always been decidedly on the side of "less" as opposed to "more." We wanted to make an album that truly reflected these character traits.

These recordings are certainly not perfect, and that's OK. They are not refined, they are not intrusive, they do not strive to impress. They are to be considered as accompaniments, or perhaps more appropriately, as complements to your activity or nonactivity. These songs can, in the words of Erik Satie, "mingle with the sound of the knives and forks at dinner." We would suggest playing them quietly and not thinking too hard while you listen.

Most of these pieces were recorded very efficiently at odd hours of the day. No overdubs were used. No more than 2 instruments per song are featured. This album is very real, immediate, and completely at ease with its place in the background...just as we intended when we quietly recorded it.

Dedicated to Kevin Bates, who meant more than words can say to so many people.
