Music and lyrics by Guy Crundwell. Produced by Matthew Neill Sharp with Steve Zimmers and Rick Karr for Box Set Authentic. Basic tracks engineered by Jeff Boyd.

But if we can find some beauty in this weakness – we could practice by getting pissed off at people we don’t even know, then quickly letting it go. From Bukowski to Monk, alleys to drunks, city streets alone. Ugliness is sometimes beautiful.


from Peace in the Middle West, released October 1, 2011
