Like the gig I played in a wardrobe last weekend, it's a humble affair. Based around our two voices, a guitar and a little percussion (though I couldn't resist adorning it with a little mandolin and bass as well), we recorded it live as we perform it one lazy Sunday afternoon. These songs are some I've carried around for a while who only really get an airing at our more intimate shows, which is not to say they're lacking in their share of energy or mischief. They're the little siblings left playing in the backyard while The Folk Machine embarks upon its epic adventures. I hope you'll enjoy its raw charms.
Cheers, Justin

PS. there's a bonus track waiting for any who dare swallow the EP whole.
