Old Ideas (& New Ideas)

2016 was a hell of a year. Personally, nationally, internationally, a hell of a year. When the music started coming together for this release one thing stuck with me. It was like some faux nostalgic sense of “Weren’t things SO much better in the olden days?” was rising which lead to, in my opinion, some pretty majorly terrible decisions being made. These outdated ideals indirectly lead to the mood and the music on these releases with vocals and other bits provided friends old and new.
