All these hours of labor and patience To work at feedlot National monument Watching people stop at all the "don't crash spot, to see things" Avoiding all that boring nature. Was the potato farmer valued more Than a watermelon farmer? probably Debating the merits of the Beatles (Ideas are very dangerous things) On the delicate arch trail Transfer like sandstone in the Gradual, ancient processes of mesaturbation Let's play a game Let's not think of any new uses for sand Let's drive through oil country feeling disgusted Let's massage Saturn in a giant clam Hope fully you have a parachute that works To find the Walgreens national monument Traveling in arms travelling in arms Creaming and scrying The walls are angry. Gnashing, biting. Reminiscing about previous pain Nostalgia is hurt harvesting Years of training to hose out Bathroom stalls at Canyonlands National Uranium Mine These old roads leave a trace That 50 years of rabbit brush can't erase Let's play a game Let's remember the landscaped giants Let's give names to the lesser rocks Let's construct unflattering fictional National park names Let's remembering where to go Based on the shape of the rock Welcome to petroglyph national suburb Please park behind the oil change station Drink the coffee that spilled in your boot Observe the spaces that are preserved After they've already been violated Seeing only phalluses all over the landscape Taking every opportunity To record the crinkling of snack packaging Hydrating 6 oz at a time "I told my self I'd never go back to Kansas And here I am flying over it!" Sad mechanical farmers bobb Their heads to dubstep From Albuquerque to Cortez Harvesting the ashen blood Of ancient arboreal forest Milking that feeling of being on the edge of the world Or at least the south west Where there are no record stores left Or they haven't returned yet? Let's play a game Let's stop to enjoy all the unnamed arches Let's remember extinct animals Let's forget where the first nations lived Let's drive RVs and only on highways Encountering nostalgia at the Urinalcake National Rest Area Coming across the mystery of others Realizing that I've never taking A recording of a airplane toilet Listening to desert metal Learning how the ocean recieved its salt The vastness of the high desert The vastness of your view through An airplane window on an overcast day Returning to a place that still has water

about

A few years ago I got all nostalgic for the early Subversive Intentions sound. I set out to recreate that lo fi characteristic by doing an album only using my cell phones internal mic to capture sound. It turned out that those mics (this albums production spanned the life of two phones) turned out to be much better than I had anticipated but I was still quite pleased with the sound.

I began to assemble these sounds in the spring of 2019. A constant in the back drop of this albums production was news of climate changes very apparent impact on the globe. The world got the news from the top climate scientists at the U.N. that we have less than a decade to change the tide of climate change, Greta Thunberg and Autumn Peltier made international headlines for their activism to raise awareness. In the mean time I was running a label using reclaimed cassette tapes, and spending all of my free time designing and implementing a permaculture design on my land. Clearly the climate was on my mind. So I needed to make this album about climate change. This influenced all the track titles and the samples I used.

This album collages field recordings made over the span of 2017 - 2019. Most of the recordings were done in while traveling in Maine, Utah, New Mexico, North Carolina, and Costa Rica.
