A collection of moody, predmoninantly Treated Guitar and synth-heavy work recorded between 1997 and now, this seven song, appropriately sized 3" EP is almost like a snapshot of the Kid sampling his own musical
History, picking the most fitting pieces out of over a 100 unreleased and unfinished songs these are the ones that had to be released, a strong document of what was made in over 5 different homes, in three different cities and on tour in between.
Given Kid606's prolific output over the past three years, fans and newcomers alike will appreciate this highly personal collection of thoughtful instrumentals centered around family, best friends, ex girlfriends and trying to keep from stagnating if yr not keeping up with every new trend. Still completely fresh sounding to those already familiar with Kid606's oeuvre, it'd be hard to believe that any of the oldest tracks on this recording were ever written at the beginning of his career.
