The Present Imperfect was a tape released by Natrix Natrix Records (Austin, TX) in 2006. It was recorded in the house on John Campbells Trail using an 4-track TASCAM. My favorite moments in the recording are the wooden chair squeaks and Rell's dog Sailor sighing, but you have to listen really hard to find that last one. The songs on this album had been rattling around in my head for several years before Rhonda and Seth encouraged me to finish them. I appreciate all their help with the project, and I am grateful to all of those who participated. The tapes are all owned now, and with no re-release scheduled, I am posting the album here. Songs are available for purchase on Bandcamp.
