well, here it is, my debut album. the first entirely original full-length sadfem release. i've been waiting to share this for a long time, some of the tracks are over 2 years old, but i didn't want to put it out until i could make it something i'm proud of despite the fact it doesn't quite represent where my production is at now. and i think i've finally achieved that. it's pretty much everything i could've hoped to get from these tracks.
while it would be pretentious to say my instrumentals have a literal meaning or tell a story, i like to think they're evocative of my feelings over the period of the album's creation, comforting to others experiencing similar ones, or at least pleasant to listen to.
i think of this as an album best experienced from start to finish, probably on headphones. at the same time i see it as having a distinct side a (tracks 1-9) and side b (tracks 10-18) but that's just what's in my mind. by all means enjoy the tracks however you feel comfortable.
thank you so much to everyone who contributed. sincere apologies to anyone i may have messed around. this album would not be what it is without any of you.
