Eloise

Here it is. Eloise. I've been working on this since Fall of 2008. Eloise is the collective nostalgia of my boyhood, the nausea of the present and future. I put a lot of thought in the sounds and ideas of this whole thing, a lot of it was scrapped, took apart, reconstructed and redone.

Eloise is the name of a street I grew up on as a kid and where a lot of the projected memories took place. It was a dirt road with a lot of paper trees to climb. Summer was always the favored season of growing up.

The cover is a picture I took and edited of Alexis. I decided on it because she is the most nostalgic person I know. And she had a lot of influence on the writing process. She was a big help. I also want to thank Ben, Grant, Elliot, and Rach for being awesome and playing rad music. Thanks to Lyn, Tyler, Alex and Jeremy.

TOP 3 JAMZ: Psiloflower, Dusk/Gloaming, and It Will Always Be Okay.

This album single-handedly brought snow to Georgia.
