"These songs were recorded on the first evening 3 out of the 4 of us ever set foot on the other side of the Atlantic. Éloïse et Laurent were kind enough to invite us to their home for our first tastes of un-pasteurized butter and cheese and meats. The food seemed to never end- we devoured it until we could no longer eat, talk or walk. It was then that the tape started rolling and we performed these songs... tired from an all-day plane ride but high on the excitement of being in Europe about to begin our tour with Sparklehorse. I cannot express our thanks to Eloïse et Laurent enough- who also managed to see us in London toward the end of our tour at our only show without Sparklehorse which was a complete disaster. Never did I think we were capable of inciting fights before. It was there that Eloïse showed us the shaker she bought- a "studio improvement" she said, over the beans in a jar that we used for percussion (I think that's what it was....). Thanks again to hinah, and thank you for listening and reading......."
