Harlan Records #32 (FCH032)-- the first post-Soophie recordings from the SNS family, this is Nate Powell's one-person band (incorporating the help of much of the SNS crew here). Half of these songs were originally written as later Soophie songs but never used or heard.
Take it for what it is-- a person adrift, somewhere between bold and stupid, equal parts confessional and embarrassing. A little Yo La Tengo, a little Former Members Of Alfonsin, a little Heroin, a little Moss Icon, a little Van Pelt.
