Background:
Largely recorded at my mom’s house in Oxford, MI at the end of 2013 and beginning of 2014, before I moved to Austin, in a room that contained all the remaining musical odds and ends from me and my brother’s rocknroll adolescence. Only tracks 2, 5, 6 and 7 were actually written for the record, the rest are old. I wrote “Charts” when I was 20 and creepily in love but didn’t like it until now.  Also strange is I wrote that bit about the Rhine River not even being sure where it was located but now have lived by it in two different countries. “Leg Work” (circa 2009) was just waiting for more words, the right arrangement and that drum beat, which I thought would be more like Sam Cooke’s “Chain Gang.” Tracks 1, 4, 8, 10 were recorded long ago and just needed the right record to go on. In fact, Brett, Austin and I used to play “Enough…” when we were on tour in the midwest back in 2009.

Credits:
Scott played drums on 10 (that’s his yelp at the end.) We recorded his part in his dad’s living room some summer during college.  We didn’t have headphones good enough for him to hear over his drums, so I had to wear them and stand in his line of sight but two rooms over, conducting, so that he could match the tempo of the rest of the recordings.

Mixing help and emotional support from Lee Marcinak and Garrett Anderson.

All words and music written by wm t skillets.

"AFTER THE PARTY" [EP] now available





Night shall eat
AFTER THE PARTY [EP]



1. If you like it…*
2. Flowershop
3. After the Party
4. Joys Are Flowing Like a River*
5. Currency
6. The Sea of Tranquility

Songs written and recorded by Wm t Skillets, mostly in a dusty bathroom under a staircase like where Harry Potter lived (the recording, I mean, not the writing) in Tourcoing, France at the beginning of 2012 and in a sunny attic in Santiago de Compostela, Spain that summer.  Andrew Reaume wrote the guitar solo in "The Sea of Tranquility".  The whistling solo in "Flowershop" might have been lifted from a Chicago song, the name of which I can't recall.

Artwork by Scott Mihalik.

*"If you like it…" taken from "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)," written by BeyoncĂ© Knowles, Thaddis Harrell, Christopher Stewart, Terius Nash.

08 SEIKA IF…

credits:
Scott played the drums. Austin whistled, said mmnah and pretty much made "seika if…" sound a whole lot cooler, all while enduring a rather gay experience recording under a blanket in my Rachel's room. Yenni Tseng wrote the first two lines of "I'M SHY". Willy wrote everything (except New Theory), played most of it, sang it, did some other stuff. Oh and Austin did the cover art. Nobody got paid.
