about

More of a personal statement.

I will say this about this album. It is strange to release it in the heat of summer because it was written in depths of last winter when all of us were collectively crazy. The collective isolation. Sometimes trapped indoors close to a radiator, sometimes in my van, stuck in snow somewhere trying to finish a song with cold fingers. I had so many reasons to finish writing the songs for this album. I knew that our beloved band members Todd Marston (keys/accordion) and Aine Fujioka (drums) were leaving in the Fall and it would break my heart and piss me off if we couldn’t have one more run of new songs together. I just didn’t expect them to come falling out of mouth on to the floor without a chance to catch them and analyze them closely. But here we are, and it feels like we kicked and screamed and in turn received some serious love from the muses to produce a worthy ending to this chapter of the The Grownup Noise. Also, along the way I started hearing Dana Colley’s (Morphine) bari sax sound in my head and lo and behold a couple unnecessarily long e-mails later he’s *@#$* recording on our record.

These songs came from slow, simmering anxiety mixed with apocalyptic snow storms. Maybe like food absorbing flavor in a hot kettle. Hence the title, ‘Stewing’. I like to think of this album as grouchy minimalism, compared to our previous 3 albums. It is good to know that something good can come from raw floundering.

Sincerely,
Paul Hansen
