my parents, who believed from the beginning; i know it’s a cliche, but it’s true: without them none of this would have happened. i love you guys.
greg young: the cog that made the wheel turn; first introduced me to steve back in the day, has been huge for me the whole time i’ve been muddling through this.
steve wilmot: recording engineer; also created the original drum tracks on some songs (lonely moon, horoscopes, again, take your time, and heard you laugh); also played keyboards on some of the songs (certainly the strings on “shake the ground” and the cool sound effects in “lonely moon”); was there with lots of solid practical advice on all sorts of matters that pushed me along towards making the record better and getting it finished; also, we DJ together locally. A big, big thanks for all your help.
israel marshall: recording assistant; is that the title? regardless, a big help during the initial recording process
brent clawson: home studio master; did a great job mastering the record, he’s the real deal
jordan & lauren robbins: jordan helped fix up the realistic synth when i bought it, helped me put together the hackintosh this album was mixed on, and has always been there; also, lauren, thanks for putting up with us 🙂
dave warsop: rocker and recorder; gave me some excellent and on-point advice during the mixing process
francisco magana: graphic design guru; he told me how to make the art not look bad
derek bahn: surf photographer extraordinaire; took the pictures of the synth that are in all the record art
eric walker: logo design; took a phone conversation and made that logo, great artist
stephen hindman: synth-pop genius; thanks for all the advice and guidance over the years – you really inspired me to make this album, and make it right
brad york: we recorded in his apartment together back in 2007 – he brought me back to music; check him out in sikamor rooney
brian bajari, courtney williamson, dave neel: babyfishmouth
leonard sweet: my mentor; you were key in making this possible, in so many ways
