For this, his seventh proper album, John set up a home basement studio to work on basic demos and ideas before venturing back into his Tiny Telephone studio (issue #10) in San Francisco with co-producer/engineer Scott Solter (issue #67). As always, it's an excellent album - with more use of cool keyboard sounds this time around. John's a strong songwriter, Scott's an amazing producer, and the record has so much fun stuff to listen to - but always in service of the songs. (,
