all of these songs were written & fully realised in "the blue box" (an SRO room in the TL, where i wrote chalk on the walls & got so high trying to fall asleep that i almost died) in late dècembre 2015; they were all recorded in matt kelly's studio--with the exception of "jean-paul (or refill my cup)" , which was recorded in spring 2015 in my parents' kitchen in orange county, in my underwear, as an iphone voice memo


released August 22, 2016

grateful thanks to :

matt kelly - who recorded (with the exception of "jean-paul"), mixed, & mastered this album at BeerBox Recording | for his expert ear & meticulous demands of perfection | without whom, this album would not be what it has become | he is the godfather of my brainchild | i brought him a musical charmander & he trained it into a holographic charizard | if you'd like to work with matt, he can be reached at

natalie moon - who sings on "moonlight dancer" | for bringing enhanced beauty & brightness to this otherwise dreary expression of isolation & Self

$RZ&$ - kev , derek , wayne , trace , & julian | for adopting me into their cult of poetry & inebriation | exactly the type of family an impoverished king needs | i love you
