Jenell Kesler A four song thesis of material that sounds entirely new, yet in the same breath rides as some long lost recordings laid down during the Summer of Love, then forgotten, drifting on warm currents of hypnotic manifestations, as did the album Happy Trails by Quicksilver Messenger Service, where the instrumentations are the best part of the trip … and CFR waste no time in getting you there.

A warm comforting blanket of stars, embroidered with wondrous delights.

Track Name: intro to the CFR
Well I just missed my flight
But I got a good reason
There's a felonious frog in my crown and it's covered with lesions
But there's some people out there who can make you well
Give you advice, and clean your cells
The council on foreign relations are changing the seasons
They're going to town
