(Arni Hjörleifsson / Chili Tomasson)
the songs kept piling up. romances, stories, leftovers of love affairs, dreams and political ideas.
we had been living together over a year working as closely as ever, each one of us discovering new sides of himself and of each other.
in the fall we gathered again around the old, charmingly out of tune piano at Peacecastle, among microphones, computers and books ranging from Marx to Sailor’s Guide. a number of songs, a few of which we had only heard for the first time the previous day, others we had been playing since our teens.
in the end, the same room, the loudspeakers at a moderate level, the six of us sitting on a tiny couch, happy about the work behind us, aware of the work ahead, ready to let go.
dear listener, we hope you enjoy this record. find a place for it whether you are looking out of the window of your morning train, sitting at home with your friends and loved ones or dancing at a pub right before closing time, everyday or anyday,
