about

In 2005 and 2006 Lane Barrington and Sean Moore recorded this album at Sean's house. None of the songs are related enough for it to be seen as anything but a collection of short stories, and that's what it is. Fifteen musical short stories...
These songs are fleshed out with traditional instruments such as (clarinets, trumpets, trombones, violins, banjo, stand-up bass, and jazz drum-kits) as well as
makeshift instruments such as (washing machine bass drum, "tom"pani's,
dad's soft knock at the door, finger-lip bubbles, etc.). Some of the
topics explored in the songs are the differences and similarities
between humans and all other members of the animal kingdom, Paul
McCartney's fall from grace as a capable decision maker, the decisions
we must make between personal happiness and unselfishness, the
difficulty of knowing you may survive a journey but you may also
witness the collapse and downfall of your companion, and the ability
to love someone so much that you live to make them a better person and
not necessarily to love you.
