Mark Perro: We bounced some ideas back and forth, each throwing out a couple song ideas that were maybe in our heads at the time we were writing, in our heads right now, or maybe are just always in our heads. Most of these bands and songs are pretty ingrained in our fiber at this point and these LP's are pretty worn out. But apparently, there isn't an end to how many times you can listen to "T.V. Eye".

Mark Shue: I don't think we were really thinking too much about specific influences at all when writing or making the record. We never talked about making anything sound like anything in particular. It was pretty organic, and any specific ties to things on this list is fairly unintentional. This list is just kind of a sampling of some of the stuff that we all share in common that's been in our DNA and might have inadvertently influenced things. The intent wasn't to sound like anything, but just to turn up and play and see what came out.

Ed Note: Tidal was missing three songs by Jack Kittel, Pharaoh Sanders, and Sun City Girls that are reflected in the Spotify playlist. We do not currently use Apple Music or other platforms for playlist content, but we may soon.
