This was originally supposed to be a split single with the band Naked Ant (nakedant.bandcamp.com
). However, I finished my tracks way before they were able to record anything, so they've given me the go-ahead to release my half as a standalone EP. This recording never would have happened without their invitation to work together, so thanks to them for getting Dirtman kick-started again.
After finishing these four tracks (which had been kicking around in demo form for a while), I was inspired to start working on a new full-length album, and I wrote a bunch of songs, which are among the best I've ever written. So stay tuned for more soon. The LP will probably include some of these four EP songs, maybe in slightly different form.
