A few days after the election, I recorded a couple of cover songs, just voice and guitar, live to tape. It was quick and sloppy and cathartic, with no edits. The Leonard Cohen song came a few days later, and was recorded on electric just because my acoustic was in another room when I was learning the chord changes and that happened to be the sound that was set up on the electric.

If you like these songs and would like to pay for this EP, please take whatever you think it's worth and donate that money to charities like Planned Parenthood, Lambda Legal, PFLAG, the Sierra Club, the NAACP, or the ACLU.

Building Rockets Austin, Texas

Building Rockets is occasionally a band and occasionally a bedroom recording project.

It sounds a little like The Pixies and Wilco covering Fountains of Wayne songs while “Abbey Road” plays in the background.
