The album was recorded live at Simon’s house, and was engineered, mixed and mastering by Steve Fanagan (Slow Loris/Northstation). This lovely limited edition release from Hefty Horse records will be available on vinyl format and this also includes a free CD with a high quality mp3 version of the album.
In a world where complexity and strangeness has the potential to cause only frenzied confusion (musically and otherwise!), You Kiss By The Book are committed to singing with straightforward ease about their favourite things that include chopping wood, stones, sleep and bears. The influence of Elliott Smith, Conor Oberst and Mark Linkous may also be suggested throughout the songs.
There’s nothing fan dangled about this album! Overall, here is a band that’s fervent about celebrating the organic essentials of playing stripped-down alt. country music. Plans are being etched out for spring gigs so keep an ear to the soil.
