We asked twelve of our friends to write a song for each month of the year, and this is the result: an original song for each month of the year packaged with a poster-sized March-March calendar and a lovely white-on-black screenprint, designed by our friend Eric Sarai.
from the inside :
"Last spring there was a small group of us that were having what we called "songshares." We'd pick a day & on that day everyone had to write a song and share it to the group at night. The idea was partly inspired by Paleo's song diary, & also by Ashley and Eli (from LAKE), who did something similar last year & made an amazing cassette tape out of it. I believe our friends at Brown Interiour Music are putting it out. It was really interesting to have an assignment, & to be kind of forced to be creative. At these songshares I always ended up making music that was really different than the music that I would make if I were feeling more emotionally compelled to write a song. So this project, to me anyways, is an extension of those ideas."
