"There are six cuts here, including a tonally quite different take on Lennon & McCartney's And I Love Her, appearing as And I Love Him, but my favorite is the title track, positioned as the closer and a marvelously soporific gem of lullabye melodics, a fuller return to the Donovan/Nick Drake vibe more clearly evident in Chris' first release." -F.A.M.E.
"The big location change affected the singer-songwriter, who told CMJ that his upcoming I Am Not From Here EP is mostly about "living in New York City, but daydreaming about the countryside." -CMJ
Produced by Jimi Zhivago, engineered by Brian Thorn, and mixed at NYC's Magic Shop. Featuring cello by Julia Kent (Antony and the Johnsons) & drums by Blake Fleming (Mars Volta).
