"The Mantra Variations" was improvised by Matt Burnett and myself on 3.14.12 at Green House. We'd especially like to thank Amplitube for causing an equipment failure that rendered the laptop useless and made this a dual-guitar improv piece.

"Beast Infection" is for Derek Rogers and Leslie Cochran and was performed by Tom Benton, Lee Dockery, Art Pinsof, Rebecca Ramirez and myself at Trophy's on 3.12.12. Matt Burnett was behind the soundboard.

" 'Brother Sisters' Excerpts" was performed by Lee Dockery and myself on 3.18.12 at Wardenclyffe.

"Sine Waves In The Sand" was performed by Matt Burnett, Lisa Marie Mims, Rebecca Ramirez and myself at Cherrywood Coffeehouse on 2.25.12.

This is the sixth release from Handsomest Drowned Man Records--March 19, 2012.
