AWKWARD GIRL she’s such an awkward girl she walks so fast she’s such an awkward girl walks into walls of glass dances with no rhythm none of that for her leaning all the time dizzy as she runs a Mona Lisa smile she is unaware of how beautiful she’s such an awkward girl she has no past she’s such an awkward girl walks into walls of glass says hi to everyone even when she doesn’t know who they are or who she is or why her dress does not quite fit the look of all the other girls but so beautiful she’s such an awkward girl she makes us laugh she’s such an awkward girl walks into walls of glass she’s leaving yesterday but here she is again at the bar buying drinks for strangers unaware of how this can be read but her innocence so beautiful she’s such an awkward girl…

about

amazing vibe/results with producer/engineer Pete Weiss at Verdant Sound
(Athens VT)
so happy a time. 4 songs in 4 days (recorded and mixed)
sometimes a good vibe gets you not good results (and vice versa). this time, however, the sweetness of where we were (so far out of town) and the skill of Mr Weiss and the wide open, no iso booths, big room studio
benefited the band hugely
