In the past, with acts 1-3, I have had to be so incredibly stubborn and steadfast in the production of the records to try and maintain the very specific scope of each record. Even though the records are expansive, and eclectic, very little was left up to chance, and almost nothing was left up to improvisation. This is the way I need to make concept records.
Migrant is the other end... of the... spectrum. So much of it was on the spot, small changes, little flubs that were kept, because it is meant to be a very human record.
Now I didn't mean to say 'I will never finish the act records'. Realistically, I could never leave them unfinished. What will most likely happen is this: I will write the records on off time over the next year or so, then I will try and work in studio time when I can to complete it on my own, and mix it on my own as well... simultaneously I will be working on the next 'proper' release from the dear hunter.
I don't want you guys to feel that I have abandoned anything. I just feel very inspired by the work on Migrant, and want to see where that takes me. The Act records HAVE to be in a fairly particular style - I can't just slap a tree on Migrant 2 and call it act IV... its has to be right, and it has to be real... always keep it real.

Dad assaulted my mother and I, tried to get me arrested, I've couch surfed the entire summer. Finally settled down with my mother and her new boyfriend in a pretty sweet apartment. Aside from that? I've been so busy, oh god. Full time baker, etc.
I don't know who's all still here, but I want you to know Socks the II (or III) is doing okay, is a year sober, and kicking ass.
