What? Why write these little novelty items? Well, when asked to put in a word for a band that I've worked with or to promote an upcoming event, I find it easiest to do it as a small ditty. Bit of a comfort zone for me.

These two older tracks were for bands that I had the pleasure to work with in different ways. Los Kaites are from Costa Rica. They had recorded their record on a smaller budget. I went from mastering to mixing/ mastering which was a lot of fun and a process that was full of discovery. When they asked me to pitch in to their promo campaign I couldn't refuse.

With Montreal's The Hangers, we had done a record that was close to my heart a while back and for one of their annual "spectacles" they invited me to sing a couple of songs, requesting that I do one with Lo. That got me to write a new one just for the event and also to write the second song here to help promo the event. A long time ago.

Both tracks on this release are shameless, but were a lot of fun to blast through.
