Tracks 1-2: These are the first 2 songs I recorded when I decided I wanted to do Shy Mirrors in 2010. Recorded during the same time span as the Reactors and Arrow EPs

Tracks 3-8: The Arrow EP was supposed to be released shortly after the Reactors EP in an edition of 25 lathe LPs. Unfortunately we were never able to get this pressed. I am happy to make it available here though, finally.

Tracks 9-25: The "Print and Hold" cassette is one of my lost albums. I sequenced and mastered it but when it was time to send it to the label I, for various reasons, decided to hold off on the release. I ended up getting a drum set shortly after finishing this and that inspired me to write a whole new batch of songs and I guess I put these songs on the back burner for a later time. I figured they'd work just as well as Audio Graves.
