about

A pensive, thoughtful rock & roll record with hints of R&B and 80′s guitar pop. For Music Lovers explores themes of spirituality in the mundane, race and class in society, and observation of one’s surroundings. The physical package includes a tape of the full length, a mini-CD of b-sides, and a zine called "Intentional Listening Guide" that explores themes from the album.
