Experimental in its leanings, Venezuela changes lanes between nearly every song, sometimes weaving in musical traffic within a song itself. At times the drive is smooth, at others, terrifiying.
Recorded in San Marcos, Texas at Studio Clarewood throughout 2007 and in San Antonio, Texas at Studio 1927 from 2018-2019

After finishing the record Quantum Mechanics, I felt inspired and relaxed, yet unsure and defensive musically. I understand that’s a hard thing to convey to someone who isn’t a musician. But you can hear the difference between this record and the last. There’s a chillness in each guitar riff and movement.
From memory, I can certainly say this album came from a spell of uncertainty towards letting everything go and going the family route. I have a distinct memory of wanting to give listeners a raw, dirty, unpleasant musical disposition. It was like I was trying to purge myself of what I didn't need once I was in that family life.
This would be the last proper album I'd write in San Marcos, and the last in Texas until 7 years later when I had become sufficiently planted in San Antonio, Texas.
Special Thanks to Venezuelans.
