One Shitty February (2007)

Kind of a mish-mash of all different kinds of stuff. I suppose it leans toward acoustic-y pop.

Cake Dome (2012)

Songs that thankfully appeared out of thin air during the 29 days of February, 2012. Turned out kind of desperate and sad, but such is February in Toronto, I suppose.

Lemonade (2016)

Sort of a sarcastic, pessimistic take on optimism. Everything was really raw and quick, particular vocals, and I usually chicken out and nix it but this time I gave myself permission to be lousy. It's very liberating. Lotsa harmonies and guitars. Stylistically all over the map.
