About poorpete:

usually acoustic guitar driven folky rocky sometimes electronicy, only a few times rappy, with a bit of country and a bit of whatever and most of the time without percussion but I'm getting better at that, but then again don't expect a bass line, though feel free to add your own, I record and edit at home on my computer.

About the shadows at night:

If you are a fan of love songs, you are in luck, "too late tomorrow" and "don't wake up the sun" are swooners. there's country songs ("big tornado"), funny songs ("that's life"), sad songs ("grandma's house"), classic woe-is-me poorpete songs ("two more chances"), political anger songs ("it won't change a thing"), lo-fi improvisations ("baby carrots"), punky songs ("saints and saviors") and songs about nighttime (most of them). instruments played on album: vocal chords, 12-string acoustic guitar, piano, regular acoustic guitar, keyboard that makes different noises, mandolin, ukelele, percussive stuff, and a $20 kids drum set.
