"Gary Higgins is back from the time-space continuum with previously unheard moments from his storied past. Way back in 2005, Drag City reintroduced his 1974 psych-folk classic Red Hash to listeners around the world, who were acutely touched by Gary's carefully-arranged, darkly utopian songs. Since then, Red Hash has been widely recognized as a classic of its time. Fresh from his trip to the present, Gary is back in the past for this EP of songs, all of which were written and recorded circa '70-'71 , in the same time that the songs that would form Red Hash took shape. The songs reveal the deep strain in Gary's songwriting: bittersweet but playful, pointed but impressionistic, eerie and insistent. Vocal-and-guitar recordings present the songs humbly, but before long the lyrics and melodic changes are drifting like smoke into the listener's mind, clouding simplicity with paradox while pointing towards inevitable truth."
