This was my second recording in one day, the first being the art's "the art that gives us strength to face the tyrant" album. While different stylistically, both get to the root of things. Improvisational music is not a household concept, and is little understood, even by dedicated practitioners. But it's something I hold dearly, communicating on a telepathic level with another person who just like me is trying to figure out what it is to be human. I'm thrilled to have worked here with Kathleen Duffield. She is an incredible musician with a strong swing plus the subtlety to balance her tympany, an archaic word meaning bombast, all the more fitting given Kathleen's ability to make her toms sound like timpani. Her orchestral sense of the drumkit lets me roam far and wide with the end result sounding full and full of surprises. Industrial R&B, perhaps. Nine Inch Badu. My friend Jason Thrasher asked me to make a punk record as antidote for the madness going on in the world. Of course, engineer Jesse Mangum was on board and captured it radiantly. No metronome, no edits, no censorship, all heart. Here's our punk. Thanks for listening.
