Jordan Krinsky turned inward during his time away from gigging in 2020, writing a quiet collection of personal songs before really knowing what to do with them. To bring the songs to life he assembled a varied cast of seasoned DIY musicians from the Portland scene and set them loose on his songs, first playing them out at a few gigs before tracking them with Vin Christopher on the knobs. The resulting Self-Titled EP is a perfect mixture of the introspective space Krinsky was in while writing the songs and the energy and excitement that came along with bringing the songs to life surrounded by friends and supporters. Its a beautiful combination that glimmers and sparks.

I just love the mix of the sounds. It's just the right amount of noise and atmosphere. Great distorted and wailing guitars. Just a great dreamy and spacey sound with the right amount of edge.
I personally just really love the chorus on the guitar on Billboards and the notes played. Reminds me of Cocteau Twins or smth, sounds so emotional...
Perfect album comradezibro
