about

Each song was written in 5 minutes or less. It was a game we played that got out of hand.

Michael Sachs sings and plays piano, synth, clarinet, flute, and shakers.
Mikey Buishas sings and plays piano, synth, guitar, cello, bass, drums, and trumpet.
Leica barks at squirrels between takes and snores during "One Guy"

Recorded December 8-12, 2020 in Kingston, NY on a Tascam 38.
Mixed and mastered by Michael Sachs.

Profound gratitude to key life pals:
Adam Brisbin for guiding us on the mixing path,
Maddy Baltor for helping bounce and mix and sequence,
Jenny Scales for the artwork,
Nick Llobet for teaching us the 5-minute song game in the first place,
Erin and Lou and Nick and Ian and Kim and Maddy and Adam for their friendship and their own inspiring 5-minute songs,
and Renata Zeiguer for graciously allowing us to record in her home upstate for a week.

Congrats if you make it to the end of this thing in one piece.

About the bonus tracks:

Each of the 100 songs was originally recorded as a voice memo. The 20 bonus tracks are voice memo recordings that we didn't end up recording to tape and are streamable/downloadable after buying the album.
