"The Time I Rode a Horse to the Moon" is a compilation of odds and ends I wrote over the course of the past two years. These songs are quite diverse - they range from techno pop to country to art rock to punk - so I feel weird about referring to this as an "album" in the traditional sense. However, I still feel that these songs are at least on speaking terms with each other.
Most of these songs were experiments of sorts: Reindeer Jam was my attempt to write a rock song with a jazz structure. Way Back Home was a collaboration between me and my Dad. Ohayou Radio was my attempt at a Kraftwerk-style techno song. I felt that my musical style was becoming refined on "Phases" and "Zeugma", so naturally I did my best to obliterate any illusion of consistency my music may have had. My apologies to anyone hoping for more gooey electric piano goodness. I'll get to that on the next album. :)
