I found this eerie 10” vinyl containing songs that were either alternate versions of my music that I’d never heard or songs that I have no recollection of writing. They were all sounding of my voice and in my style so I decided to digitize them and release them!

After listening to these songs, that both came from me and from a foreign realm outside of me, tears began streaming from my tear ducts even though I was NOT crying.

My therapist thinks this is likely a metaphysical manifestation of my deepest and most dreadful neuroses. I hope you enjoy it!!
