Summer Follows Redux

Impossible Bookings is a collaboration I kinda sorta foisted upon cicadaverse, who initially posted the instrumental version of this track 6 months ago. I put words to what he'd created, we each reworked what we had into shorter form, he remixed my vocals and added to the instrumentation...then life happened to us both. We caught up recently after a few months off, remastered it, and called it good.

The name I proposed for the collab comes from a section of the Amtrak site I happened to get a glimpse of over yeahlikethat's shoulder when I was staying with her in New York in late April: "impossible bookings," referring to the company policy regarding trips booked but unable to be completed. It seemed to make sense, especially since this "band" is a long-distance collab and would be fairly difficult to actually book!

Anyway, ad astra per aspera—I'm just glad our sensibilities have thus far meshed and I was able to add something to cicadaverse's shoegazey dreampop. We'd started working on another track in the spring as well, and there are some more ideas for tracks to come, so hopefully we can make this at least a periodic thing. Much love and thanks to cicadaverse for patiently rolling with me on it so far!
