about

This album was written and recorded between autumn 2010 and spring 2011, mostly in a dorm room, and mostly late at night and into the wee small hours over a winter where I didn't really do or think about a whole lot else. After releasing it in fall 2011 I avoided it for a long time because I had a hard time hearing anything in it besides how frustrated and anxious I was that year, but in coming back to it recently I was kinda surprised to realize that it sounded like music made by a different person than who I am now, and that I was able to enjoy it on its own terms. I had been making music for a long time before this album, but it's the first thing I made that I would describe as "personal," even though the songs weren't really about anything or anyone in particular. I think I was trying to make music that felt like coming in from the snow.
