NOTES ON THE RELEASE FROM BAND MEMBER ARON SANCHEZ
Today, for Arone’s very special birthday we are announcing the release of a handful of tunes that we proudly refer to as failures. Sometimes failures are the best kinds of presents, they teach so much about how to be in the world, they are strange, scary little gifts. We made Dry Daniel way back in 2014, when the world was a little different. B&G was in a transitional moment, trying to figure out what the hell we were doing and scrambling to arrive at an answer quick. What we ended up with was a snapshot of a process that eventually taught us how to make music better. Upon finishing Dry Daniel, on the very day we were to release it, Arone and I both looked at each other and said “it’s no good, is it?” and with a big sigh of relief, decided to shelf the whole thing (except the single Seam Esteem). This is a testament to how dedicated we are and especially Arone is to making something that really is authentically what we want.
Arone, it’s been an amazing, inspiring ride working with you all these years. It’s a privilege. Your talents are hard to beat. Happy Birthday.
Check it out people, it’s a B&G archeological dig.
