This is a fake album made by accident.
Why does this exist?
In 2010, I wrote a singer-songwriter record that was lo-fi and simple and pretty well received. In 2011, I wrote a weird electronic album on my phone that no one liked or listened to. Well, I've spent most of 2012 working on full band material--sort of indie pop electric stuff, but that record is probably another year away.
Still, I wrote a lot in 2012, and a lot of the songs make sense together, and a lot of them aren't going to be full band songs. So I did an even more lo-fi redux of what I did with my 2010 songs. I took a couple hours on a cold weekend in December and just recorded all these tracks live to one microphone in my basement, with no overdubs and very minimal post production (ie: reverb). These recordings were done without any intent of sharing them or making an album of them. But here I am doing it anyway. All these songs were written in 2012 except my History of Science song "Lavoisier" which is from 2010 but didn't fit on the last two collections.
Apologies for flubs, voice cracks, the missed lyrics, the ticking clock in "Empty Now," and the plosives...pop pop pop, blup blup blup. But those things are what happens when you make a fake album by accident. I recommend we just pretend they're charming while we wait for all the good things to come in 2013.
released 05 February 2013
all songs carefully written and recklessly recorded by AMM using 1 blue yeti usb microphone, a seagull parlor guitar, and some kind of plastic tambourine.
