This EP is a monument to a killer live band that only played six shows from September 2014 to July 2015. Now that group of humans has split, going separate ways, living their lives, and that's okay! Lives are there to be lived! These songs are all very 2014, emotionally; they're small monuments to how I used to feel, but it's nearly 2016 and high time I feel something new! Bringing these tunes to fruition so Aubades could play them *and* playing them with Aubades have taught me so much about music going forward, and going forward is the ideal option, so I'm proud to have these tunes as monuments themselves to the best dang first real band a fella could ask for.
Wishing Eva her best in China, Mary her best in NOLA, Seth his best in dominating Minneapolis with Wretch and Ego Death, and wishing Toby would drink absinthe and watch art films with me more often. Shouts to Jenny and Ian, once an Autobody always an Autobody; shouts to Burnell and Isabel for seeing every show between the both of ya'; and shouts to the future, dread it as I may.
