about

We recorded these tracks in the summer of 2013. Christian got some better gear for his guitar, Joe bought a used accordion to throw in the mix, and we also spent longer on mixing than we did on the first album. Otherwise our methods were similar to last time (see last album's description) and we are still broke and pretty cut off from the music world.

We intended for this album to be longer, but a bunch of setbacks slowed things down (like Joe's apartment flooding through the ceiling with black liquid infused with mouse shit at the end of that summer). Eventually we decided our next round of material is probably going to sound different enough that this stuff should be an album on its own. The only complaint we really have this time though is we wish the tracks were louder (still have a bit to figure out about mastering) so like, just turn it up.

about

Your Marginally Talented Photographer Girlfriend Brooklyn, New York

This band consists of Christian Banfield and me, Joe Quinn. Having been in bands before but feeling sort of left behind, we had talked a lot about wanting to make really heavy (yet comical) music together but were missing the contacts, equipment, money, time, etc. We decided to do it anyway, starting off with almost no equipment beyond a guitar and a webcam and gradually getting our shit together. ... more

Track Name: RD and Me
"If I could turn you on,
if I could drive you out
of your own wretched mind,
if I could tell you I would let you know."

"Who is not engaged
in trying to impress,
to leave a mark,
to engrave his image on the others and the world"

"graven images held more dear than life itself?
We wish to die leaving our imprints burned into the hearts of others.
What would life be if there were no one to remember us"

"And when we are dead,
our presence scattered
in ... ten thousand hearts,
... will fade and disappear."

"How many candles in how many hearts?"
"How do you plug a void plugging a void?"

"How to inject nothing
into fuck all?
How to come
into a gone world?"

if you want to become friends with me,
that might be nice, and i think that you would find that
i am just a real nice friend to have, the
kind that always will be there for you

it is very nice to have some friends who you can be yourself with:
people who will stand by you and listen to you but not judge you

friendship.
