Album Notes
(from The Joint Compound website)

"WELCOME TO THE JOINT COMPOUND... The most natural and fanatical incarnation of whatever musicianship I have either salvaged or generated since my band Stars of Track and Field broke up in late 2010. The Joint Compound is a scattered but somehow congealed anomaly that just might make you bafflingly tilt your head like a dog. THIS- my debut EP, "Please Don't Leave Get Out", is the result of the first phase of my post- touring rock band drummer metamorphosis into who fucking knows what. For my first record I felt it necessary to mine, dig up and then chop up some feelings I've felt after getting dumped by record labels, managers, sadly parting ways with my longtime bandmates, relationships gone south, friends and loved ones dying.. To create music that allowed me to express my desire to reside in some barely cozy place.. far from boring, but not completely insane.. deep enough to stretch my legs but also shallow enough for me to somehow breathe.. A record that would allow me to move forward without looking back."

On his debut, you'll hear Orvik writing, performing, engineering, recording, producing and mixing the music entirely himself, apparently in a little suburban bedroom in some quiet Bay Area suburb probably overcrowded with SUVs and Starbucks coffee shops. Buckle up and listen closely. If you're patient enough to sift through the various layers of smack Orvik slaps down to feed his sick A.D.D needs, you might discover a colony of calm, quiet, flirting flies. Not the nasty ones that buzz and bother, but the little ones that perform arial ballet catch- me- if- you- can.
