This split is a collaborative release with Omaha's Slumber Party Records and Salt Lake City's Chthonic Records. A little about each artist…

Toby Goodshank made his high-profile debut playing acoustic guitar in The Moldy Peaches (Rough Trade Records, now featured on the Juno Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Rhino Records, #1 album on the Billboard Top 200). Once that band began its indefinite hiatus, Goodshank kicked his solo career into overdrive, touring Europe twice with Jeffrey Lewis (Rough Trade) and fellow Moldy Peach Kimya Dawson (K Records). In a relatively short amount of time, Toby Goodshank has become a crucial voice in the underground NYC music scene, with unconventional song-structures and surreal lyrics supported by an uncommonly professional approach to his craft.

Samuel Locke Ward is a singer and song maker from Iowa City, IA. One of the more prolific young DIY artists from the Midwest today, Locke Ward has amassed a large catalog of various releases on small labels, changing musical styles faster than most can be bothered to keep up with (outside of a small but enthusiastic cult following), often playing all of the instruments himself. Maintaining a steady solo touring schedule; he has also toured as a backing musician on various instruments for the likes of Joe Jack Talcum (of Dead Milkmen), Simon Joyner & Harvey Sid Fisher.
