For The "Finishing My Short Film To Appease My Kickstarter Backers" E.P
These songs were written and recorded by Daniel Timothy Desrosiers at Scratch Deli in Seattle, Washington from December 26th, 2014 - January 1st, 2015.
Daniel Timothy Desrosiers played all the instruments with the exception of that righteous guitar solo on Bucket(s) Of Guild. Jesse Mercury played the shit out of that guitar solo. He really gave us a tour of the fret board on that one. He also donated his buttery voice and mastering skills!
Matt Dalton was kind enough to smoke weed, drink coffee, hang out, and record some harmonies and backing vocals on Potential New Morning Routine.
Sarah Pasillas swung by and lent her tambourine when it was needed the most. Then hung around for a little bit while Daniel Timothy Desrosiers wrote some lyrics then sang the harmony in one take on A Love Song: To Me, For Me, Buy Me.
A big, giant thank you goes out to Ian Thackaberry, owner of Scratch Deli: You encourage, you inspire, you welcome, and you make the best sandwiches in town!
And lastly, the biggest thank you of all goes to my princess, baby angel, Coal. She is my muse and will forever by my album art model.
For Team Elastic Waistband or: Female to Female
-- Listening instructions --
Gather the following items:
1. Jazz Cigarette rolled with the flower of the sativa (preferably Sour Diesel) and Randy's brand rolling papers
3. A single tea candle
5. A bowl of fruit (a dealer's choice of whatever is local/in season)
6. This E.P
. (cassette is ideal, but digital is acceptable)
In a darkened room, use the LIGHTER to light the TEA CANDLE. Once your eyes have adjusted use the TEA CANDLE to fire up that JAZZ CIGARETTE. Toke until you've achieved the desired effect. Cue up the E.P
. and with the HEADPHONES to make sure the volume is as loud as you can comfortably withstand. Once you've made whatever volume adjustments are needed eat approximately half of the BOWL OF FRUIT. Make sure to take the time to savor and really appreciate and understand the effort it took for that FRUIT to get to you. With each bite, APPRECIATE and UNDERSTAND the series of events that had to take place in order for you to be consuming that FRUIT. Then, start the E.P
. and stare into the flame of the TEA CANDLE and DO NOT BREAK EYE CONTACT FOR THE ENTIRETY OF THE E.P.! When the E.P
. is finished, remove the HEADPHONES and blow out the TEA CANDLE. In the dark and silent room eat the rest of the FRUIT. Once you've finished consuming the FRUIT utter the following phrases out loud: I am the flower, I am the fire, I am the fruit. Repeat as necessary.
