Christina's been writing songs her whole life and recording them for years -- this is her first album . at the inception of our collaboration the division of labor was clear but we began to write collaboratively & I became a bassist & now this is our first album , too . it took a year to make ; internal vogues pertaining to songwriting & to the representational politics w/r/t recording shifted , stop-motion-fast-forward of a leaf growing falling rotting etc. : time passed . what to say about these songs ? their weird bouquet reminds me of no other . fourteen poems written in new letters , completely legible if you wear your spirit glasses . of course it's hard to know what to say .
