Delayed for nearly a decade, this is the sophomore LP by the JSE

After Mike Finnerty's departure from the band in 2007, the JSE (with Patric Valentine, Natalia McCarty and Alex "Nappy" Gonzalez) attempted to re-record certain songs and tried to recapture that early 00's atmosphere & nostalgia with little success.

As a result, two EPs of alternate versions were created (Co-Produced by Alexander Perez @ Brokenland Studios) and the JSE went back to the studio with the daunting task to rework and overdub on the basic tracks and scratch takes they had collected home-recording demos for this album from as far back as 2004.

Extra engineering and technical input by Jared Sochinsky and Shane O'Connor who graciously donated their time.

the physical version of this album features additional artwork by Just Dreadful

Track Name: Pay No Attention
pay no mind to the tear in her eye
you never cared about it when you told her those lies...
Track Name: A Song For Hope
I, I could try, to raise my arms up toward the pouring sky.
Track Name: 24 Years (the Same Song)
I've been singing the same words to the same fucking songs for 24 years...
Track Name: Calla
it's like how you don't remember 1983, I can't come around if you won't come for me / I can't be here too long, in a place so wrong.
Track Name: Better Than Sex
I've been up late, not sleeping; watching late-night infomercial television / Exercise machines, computers, creams, schemes and hair removal systems.
Track Name: Faerie Pet (Version Electrique)
I will sit and wait for you my faerie pet, any time of day you call / I will be by your side when you fall
Track Name: the People on My Block (Cancer Song)
Say hello to neighbors / God probably forgot
Track Name: Sad Tomato
say you

seem like

forever's just a cloud in the sky

and I'll be there too

you can't deny

cheer up sad one

life's what you miss

when you're having fun
