about

Another Switchback was originally written in its entirety over a swelteringly hot weekend in Austin, TX in the Summer of 2005, on an acoustic guitar directly into a shitty little tape recorder. All songs were on-the-spot composed in stream of consciousness sessions and are not very structurally different in their final, 2016 recorded versions from how they were originally improvised.

After close to a decade, Another Switchback had yet to be properly recorded as originally intended. So in late 2014 Reed flew up to Portland, OR to record it with the prolific folk at Ten Dollar Recording Co. Initial sessions went unfinished until the Summer of 2016, and the album was finally released in early 2017.

Initially conceived as a larger than life, messy, lo-fi rock record ala 90's GBV or Pavement, Another Switchback came out really different than originally expected given the 11 years that had passed since its inception. And for the better. Rather than loud and discordant, it came out much more quiet and reflective with the years behind it, tracing the arc of everything that lives and grows under the sun. Thanks for listening.

Recorded 2014 - 2016 for Ten Dollar Recording Company at the Continental Control Unit in Portland, OR. Many thanks to Redirection Records in Austin, TX.
