One year ago, the release party had already passed. Somehow, possibly through a willful ignorance of properly checking the date, I missed the actual anniversary of August 1st. Curious, as nostalgia is a piston.
Being almost 100 songs deep in my current project, that album of a paltry 13 songs seems like several lifetimes ago. Almost precious that I spent so much time on a baker's dozen. But that was so much more than just the album. The planning, the rehearsals, the exhaustion, love, anxiety. It was something most likely once in a lifetime for me.
I haven't re-watched it in full since I edited the video, so I suppose it would be appropriate to do it in the next week or so. Anyways, cheers to that night, that life.
