about

Part 1 (Track 1-10) compiles my fully-arranged and produced studio tracks of the year. My collaborators shine brightly throughout, all of whom I admire and respect greatly. These songs were finished independently of one another, with no intention of assembly as a definitive album. However, when constructing this track order (which I encourage you to arrange to your own preferences), I was struck by how it seems to hold together anyway. Perhaps it can live as a stand-alone piece, but I'm really intrigued by the idea of using particular songs (and collaborators) as a foundation for developing further EPs or albums. Hindsight is 2020...

Part 2 (Track 11-21) is the antithesis of the studio compilation. One guitar and one voice. The experience of performing a new song to yourself in an empty, quiet space carries an emotional weight that I find hard to explain. In most cases, these recordings were made within the same hour of writing the songs. While the sonic aspect of the recordings may not be up to “standards,” I feel that the primitive nature of them is part of the charm. I’ll be revisiting many of these songs for consideration of expanded arrangement.

-Randy McStine, November 2019.
