A word on the segues between tracks:
For this record, Clumsy turned to several talented amateur voice actors to complete the EP's emotional spectrum. Featured first is a crosswalk on Market Street saying "wait" over and over to represent city life and the impatience of youth. After the first track, an anonymous bus driver let Clumsy record him saying "next stop, Love Pop" because Clumsy thought it would be sick, and they were right. After Simple Desire is perhaps the most important and legally dubious sound byte, wherein Spencer Owings and Casey Schryer recreate a scene from the television show Adventure Time, which has been dear to Clumsy for a long time. Ben Fischer provides the penultimate interlude, offering his opinion on the shortcomings of the 21st century's modes of personal transportation. Finally, Clumsy crosses the street.
Special thanks to Raoul Incerti.
