Album Notes
This album is finally seeing the light of day. Recorded in the fall of 2008 in a cottage on Lake Winnebago in Northeastern Wisconsin not far from where Nick Gage and Scott Lamps grew up. The album covers a wide range of sonic and emotional terrain. Something of a manchild mishmash, it is at times silly and irreverent, and at other turns pensive and poignant. At its best it covers both ends simultaneously. There's an ambient almost orchestral instrumental intro, which quickly transitions into the absurdist punk/country hybrid of "Daddy Done Done it," which veers without warning into the uplifting bouncy folk of "Dream." The middle of the album is a party with the back to back punch of "Hey Man, You're Crazy Dude, I Love You Man," and "Make Party," followed by the Pre-K reggae of "Bouncy Ball." They are briefly tempered by the wry indie melancholia of "Pheasant," which segues into a Bowie-escent by way of Bono croon on the danceable long distance break up ditty "Telephone." The final track "I Believe" is a sweet, brief meditation on things that work and ends with a beautiful decrescendo-ing trumpet fade out.

Nick Gage and Scott Lamps have been writing music together since being serendipitously assigned as roommates freshmen year of college in 1998. This is the 3rd record they recorded together, and first to be be released. In the spring of 2012 they wrote their first musical as a duo (Scott has written many now on his own) with StarKid Productions, "Holy Musical, B@man!"
