Vinyl LP pressing. Brace the Wave as recorded in about 6 days with Justin Pizzoferrato at Sonelab studios in Easthampton Massachusetts. Justin was the engineer for the 3 Dinosaur Jr reunion LP's. Songs like "Redeemed," "Wave" and "Moving" reprise his early methods of tuning his ukulele down low and writing the song in the moment, during the recording process. Others like "Lazy" and "C&E" are live recordings of traditional-style folk songs, some which he began writing nearly 20 years ago. The lyrics encapsulate yet another transitional period in his life. He kept this album short anticipating the listener fatigue associated with a musician who's been around for 25+ years.
