These songs were recorded off-the-floor with a portable "Zoom" recorder in the basement of Charlotte's family home in Toronto, in the month of May of 2007. We had free time, were in good health and had access to instruments, therefore a decent amount of fun was had.

Except for "My Pulsing Compass", later properly recorded on "Years Are Made Of Seconds", these songs had priorly been released on The Keys' first two albums : "Outside/In The Wild/For A While" (Dead Bees, 2006) and "Elle était toute seule dans sa tête" (2006).

Charlotte rocked the drums and her brother Joseph played some groovy bass on a couple of tunes. Charlotte's dad kindly did some audio tweaking afterwards to help with the overall abrasiveness.
I'm therefore very grateful for the amazing Cornfields for all their precious input into making this.

Hey, I won't lie : it's all pretty rough, but kind of fun too.
(Well, at least, I hope so !)
