Use only seven words to describe the album.
Everyone should be valuing Facts and Values.

Playing on the album title, what facts and values do you want people to have?
[pullquote-right]”The point of the title track is to encourage the listener to contemplate the divide between the facts of any given case and the values we humans attach to them.”[/pullquote-right]We wouldn’t presume to tell folks what they ought to value. The point of the title track is to encourage the listener to contemplate the divide between the facts of any given case and the values we humans attach to them.

Why does the landlord have the monkey’s morality?
Good question. See David Hume, Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion.

Not releasing it for 4 years.

How many attempts did it take for you to get the ending right for the end of the album?
You’re referring to the track, ‘Four Attempts at an Ending’. Let’s see… Six total attempts, we’re not certain what happened to the other two, but we hear Beau Jennings has them. We’re confident that he can make better use of them than we ever could.


People can still download the album for free on their bandcamp page, studentfilm.bandcamp.com. It won’t be free forever, so get it now!
