After the band's contract with Myrrh was up they produced this little independent album that you could only get from them or a music festival like Kingdom Bound (which is where I got my original tape). This disc adds a slightly new element to their sound: fuzz. Somehow Derri managed a guitar tone that was dirty and fuzz - full of feedback and distortion and managed to somehow make wonderful melodic songs that evolve the band's sound while still remaining distinctly The Choir. Love this.

Useless Fact: Steve Hindalong doesn't like to talk about the meaning of "Weather Girl." I don't know why... so ... Steve if you ever read this, I'm really curious.
