In Such A Fix To Be So Fertile

Originally released on the netlabel Rope Swing Cities (RSC001) - the first release of the label, in fact! Here's what they had to say:
On this EP, the first on Rope Swing Cities, we see Colorado's Ten & Tracer turning in a new direction, taking a step away from the sort of hopeful melancholy of his previous releases on labels such as u-cover and 8bitpeoples. In the past Ten & Tracer's sounds have held the feeling that in the end everything will be ok; the morning always comes after a long night. For In Such A Fix To Be So Fertile, we are kept from feeling that daylight will ever come.

Fortunately for us, this doesn't mean that this release is fraught with the angst and depression of a tortured soul. What we have here is a contemplative walk through the city streets of your home after dark. Grey skies and concrete, hands stuffed deep into your pockets against the cold, attempting to find a clarity of mind that will give you answers to questions you have about who you are and what you're doing with your life. Instead of wallowing in emotion, we find analyzation and exploration, looking to discover things about yourself. In the 26 minutes that comprise this release, Ten & Tracer offers you a moment to stop and reflect on what has come before.
