Living Room
by Michael Nhat

“Living Room” was originally titled “Insomnia For the Sport of It”, but I changed my mind because it didn’t go with the cover photo. I purchased the cover photo for 75 cents at a store called Mostly Books in downtown Philly.

From 2008-2011 I recorded a number of songs that would later make up the 20-track album “Living Room”. At the time when I began recording, I had not intended for the songs to be combined into one specific album. In my free time I would record songs out of boredom and fear that I might die some day and the beats and lyrics would be left undone.

Paramanu Recordings and I had been in negotiations to release an album with them since 2006. In 2010, they emailed me about a release date in March 2011, but it got delayed to 2012.

The album is almost entirely sample based. Some samples include Fiona Apple’s “Waltz” for the ending of track 3 “Whitewashed“, Andrea True’s “More More More” for track 6 “I’ll Die in Laos” and the “Popeye” soundtrack for track 9 “Cut Your Own Hair it’s Affordable“.

It features vocal collaborations with Magick Orchids, Dylan Doren, Bizzart, The Little Red Writer, Barrie Rose and k-the-i???. The late Brandi Hollandsworth was my roommate for a couple months and made some guest vocals as well on “Good Times”, “Cut Your Own Hair It’s Affordable” and “Lies and Confusion”.

I produced most of “Living Room” except tracks 1,6,7,8,9,and 20 by Jbts (of Luna is Honey)
and track 11 and 19 by Andrew Felix (of A Sending Service/I Had An Accident Records & Annie Hall Records)
