This record began as a small collection of songs, most of which had no words, that I recorded with Brian Kantor, just scratch guitar and drums. The songs weren’t arranged in any way, Brian and I just made eye contact when I thought the next part should happen. Those tracks were built upon, the layers of guitars, effects, and other instruments shaped by my obsession with tone and mood. The lyrics came (slowly and painfully) from my obsession with my own emotional landscape (and booty).

About Chris Buckridge

Chris Buckridge is from Canton, Ohio (and always will be). Relocating to New York City on Halloween of 1999, Chris found his way to Brooklyn, where he began forging meaningful musical relationships far and wide. As multi-instrumentalist Douglas Snead of Balthrop, Alabama and front man for Ne’er Do Evers, Chris has made his way across NYC and most of the United States.

“Chris Buckridge is Brooklyn’s best-kept musical secret. Dreamy pop, spikey rock, demented glee…he does it all–often in the same song. Some say he’s Frank Black’s long-lost kid brother; I say Mr. Black better watch his back.”
—Andrew Hultkrans
