“The songs on this EP were recorded by Phil Elverum in the Department of Safety in Anacortes, WA at the end of the summer of 2007. In between a ferocious table tennis tournament and a lot of lake swimming we got 11 songs recorded. The songs available here are the ones I think work best. The idea I had was to have a really loose and raw feel to the songs and play with musicians who hadn’t heard the songs before (in a kind of John Wesley Harding style). Kevin Erickson played organ and some guitar, Adrian Orange played drums, Ruth Allison played bass and sang, Phil played drums, some piano and some guitar and Karl Blau popped in and did some harmonies. It’s taken a while for this to be released so I decided to give it away for free.”
Fair play to him for giving away the EP- we all know how much money and time goes into recording any release, especially when you’re an independent musician. So the best way of supporting him is by attending any gigs that are on the horizon, and spreading the download link amongst your friends.
