In the spring of 2009, Keith Hampson, his brother, and four close friends ventured from their hometown of North East Philadelphia went to Denton, TX to record this album with their buddies from the band Sleep Whale.
"People Songs" is basically a collection of previously recorded songs from 2006-2009. These are 15 songs that were chosen mostly from the albums "Bird & Rabbit" and "Mouse". The one-dude "bedroom" recordings have been reworked with a live band, and that is what you hear on this album. Two drummers and a sea of bells, strings, synthesizers, horns and samples accompanied by voices.
