Joel’s Notes

We recorded this in mid 2008 over a couple sessions spaced a few months apart. “The Scotsman” came together first, trying to make a hypnotic, slow folk club jam. Messick brought in his recorders for “Half Lit” and I knew things were getting heavy. Tyler’s guitar playing shines, Virgil sings harmony like the Heaviest Meadow and I dropped a couple of my finest fills.
