Erik Lutsch This is an album of authenticity. Louis has lyrical content and style that's not only relatable, but still spiked with passion. Dr. Quandary is king when production needs to feel like a live band set: it's funky, smart, and clean.

Listen here if: you like hip hop that's not explicitly illicit in it's message, beats that blur the line between real instrumentation and not, and music worth sharing. Favorite track: These Flying Days.

I stare out of a fourth floor window when I write, mostly blankly, into the northeastern sky towards the airport. When I’m lucky enough to scare up any working brain cells, this image serves as the foreground for that dive. As a result, when we were brainstorming about cover ideas, I could hardly think of a more proper and simple symbol for the contents therein. It was custom long ago to look at the flight and behavior of birds to tell the future and, coincidentally, the sudden departure of birds from a wire outside my window has brought me out of my head and back into the world which I wrote this album.
