This album is about the story of who I used to be.Musically, LaFarge continues to mix and match a wide variety of styles and traditions, while never losing track of his own vision. I listen to a lot of Latino music, and I listen to a lot of French music, whether it comes from France or Africa, and I listen to a lot of rocksteady you know, fifties and sixties Jamaican music. Ill mess with rhythms and try to come up with stuff that sounds almost more traditional in certain genres, and then keep playing it and try and get it into something that Ill want to sing every night. This record is kind of like Roy Orbison and Bob Dylan hanging out with chanson singers and French jazz bands in like the forties, but I was never trying to make it sound like a particular person. It was more like, If it sounds too much like this person, I need to make it sound more like me.
