A decidedly more collaborative album than A Record, Laura Stevenson’s second full-length was written with her full band. The record is about “sitting in one place but wanting to get somewhere else,” Laura said in 2011. “It’s about running in place.”
released April 26, 2011
Recorded by Eric Bennet at Hunt Studio

This EP is a major highlight for indie folk during the 2010s. This EP also introduced me to the respective solo work of Phoebe, Julien, and Lucy--I will always be grateful for that. :)
P.S. The closing track is a 12/10. James Loves You
I'm not sure how many artists can claim to have performed live through online concerts in MMO games, but Soccer Mommy can certainly boast this after their appearance on CPRewritten. Thanks for the 'live' concert and QnA afterwards - it was a fun and unique event for sure.
Album has a melancholy & bedroom acoustic feel, bringing together elements of adolescent and mental insecurity and instability, - perfect for afternoon gazing into a cloudless sky wondering what currently is and what will be. Xtra Happy
