a word from gary maglary (of vote smith):
in february of 2011, erik broke his leg in two places which lead to an emergency room trip where he was mistakenly brought to the trauma unit and then eventually admitted into the hospital for 5 days.

the following ep was recorded after this hospital stay while erik was in bed, using an ukulele, a toy synth & vocals recorded through his built-in laptop microphone and is based on notes he wrote while under the influence of strong pain medication in the hospital.
