Contra Festival Monterey Crock-pot

The last few months have been spent writing songs, making a few videos, and dreaming of better times. Magically, it all seemed to add up to an EP. Almost ready for release!

Led by a cover of "I Think Ur a Contra", masterfully written by Ezra Koenig & Rostam Batmanglij, and originally performed by Vampire Weekend. These are songs about outdoor markets, plane trips, cooking techniques, and relationships. A touch of 2020, a bit of nostalgia, and a nod to the future. Here's hoping this music brings you some smiles, and a return to life as you want it.
