to whom it may concern,
This is Hotel Fogher, the extended stay.
Hotel Fogher is a catharsis album. It investigates the letting go of useless burdens, but acknowledges the problems that arise when doing so.
Hotel Fogher is meant to be architecture. Each song is meant to create a certain space. Track 1 should be considered the lobby. Tracks 2 - 5 should be considered the 2nd through 5th floors. Track 6 should be considered the rooftop of the building. Tracks 7 - 9 should be considered songs.
Each song has a corresponding piece of artwork that is meant to flesh out the lyrics.
Tracks 6-9 are available via download only. Bonus!
Recorded on a TASCAM DP-004 4-track digital recorder.
Thank you for your time and thoughts. I hope you find what you're looking for.
