Sing In Traffic

by Artichoke

Artichoke's debut EP consists of the moody "Ocean Sideways," a compelling tale of unexpectedly good luck in the form of "Fort Knox," the poppily oblique "One-Man Seesaw," and the set-closing sock-dropping fairy tale "Jackie and the Beanstalk."

Album Notes
"I always put on "Sing in Traffic" when I'm cleaning my house," says Los Angeles guitarist Eric Potter.

"Sing in Traffic" was recorded in January of 2001 at Michael Bedik's studio in the valley. Bedik created a warm, natural sound by recording Artichoke's best four songs live and with no click track. At this time, the band was playing many Fridays at Canter's Kibitz Room in West Hollywood. We were paid with free reubens and tea. Timothy Sellers wrote the songs, sang, and played guitar. Mark Scanlon was on drums, Ezra Siegel played bass, Octavius Poirier played guitar.

Eric Potter adds, "And my house is very tidy!"


to write a review


This EP may just have four songs, but they are four shining gems. "Fort Knox" and "Jackie and the Beanstalk" are both driving tales of stolen gold, though only the second one contains giants. "Ocean Sideways" and "One-Man Seesaw" are dreamier concoctions, but still catchy as all get-out. You are sure to find yourself singing along in no time!
