Sub Urban Poet: The Lawyer Songs
15 tracks, 40 minutes, electric, acoustic, spoken word, totally solo. Music for poverty lawyers, poets, once & future sub urbanites, people who like poet songwriters with vicious wit, solid guitar work, & cut-to-the-chase vocals. Recorded at the notorious Inner Ear studio in Arlington VA (recording home for Dischord records bands Minor Threat, Fugazi, more...) by Chad Clark of D.C.'s Beautypill. Graphics by Stephanie Butts of Sacramento; photos by Stephanie's sister - fine art photographer Andrea Haffner - from the roof of Andrea's Washington D.C. apartment building; produced by Stephanie with help from Margrit Eichler of by San Francisco band True Margrit; self-released on Stephanie's Gorgeous Giant Music label. Boys, girls, suburbia, redevelopment, recovery from violence, vivid poetic detail, laugh-out-loud funny, stick-in-your-head (in a really good way) pop melodies - all that, & it rocks, too!
