In Summer 2012, I was approached by The Gentlemen of NUCO to collaborate on a song for a new EP they were creating. The song I wrote was called Other People Are Too, and over the course of the next couple months, we practiced, refined the arrangement, and eventually recorded over the course of a few days at a recording studio in Chicago.
You can check out the song, as well as some other cool collaborations on The Gentlemen of NUCO EP, which is streaming online and available for download at their bandcamp, and also playable below.
