This is a collection of a couple of unreleased originals and a bunch of unreleased covers. Mostly Tigers Jaw I guess.
Tracks 1 & 2 were songs that were both supposed to appear on Coffee on an Empty Stomach but aside from these demos, I couldn't get takes that I liked so I scrapped them.
Track 3 is a Promise Ring cover from one of the last solo gigs I played at 242 Main. It was with Radiator Hospital and Alison Crutchfield. Yes I am name-dropping. Does it make me cool, absolutely not. Do I hate myself for doing it, yes.
Track 4 appeared on a compilation put out by Billy Mack for a project called City Without Limits Theme Song. Those who wished to participate received lyrics and chords via email from Billy and were encouraged to record a song. Over a hundred people submitted versions. We could use any of the chords provided in whatever order and modify the lyrics and this is what I came up with.
Track 5 is a Death Cab For Cutie cover I recorded one day when I was bored. The quality is terrible but I liked the performance regardless so here it is.
Tracks 6 - 12 are covers that until now appeared exclusively on the Summer 2012 GOOD VIBES Mix-tapes. These were personal mixes of new songs and covers that I made only for those who ordered them. I would record each song over and over for each individual tape so everyone would get a different performance. Unfortunately this was way more daunting than I expected it to be and Chris Rigsbee never ended up getting a copy. Sorry Chris. I still owe you 5 dollars.
Track 13 is a cover of Spirit Desire by Tigers Jaw that I performed at ROTA in 2011/2012. Can't remember exactly.
Track 14 is another cover I recorded out of boredom. This is one of my favorite Rilo Kiley songs.
