Three Ring Records stumbled upon Soltero while reading an ad on Craigslist. Tim was seeking info for an upcoming California tour and he included a link to the Soltero website. The rest is history! Recorded entirely on an 8-track reel to reel during the winter of 2003/2004, Tim had to walk through snow and slush an hour a day just to make it to Steve Mayone's recording studio (i.e. Living Room). His frozen feet and hands = your reward! Be sure to pick up this gem today if you haven't already!
A terrific album by an unbelievably great musician.

"This album is unbelievably great. It was recorded in a basement in the winter...and it sounds like it. Listen to it late at night. Listen to it in the dark, while driving. Buy it, and recommend it to all your friends. For anyone who likes bands like Badly Drawn Boy and Bright Eyes, you should know that you are wasting your time and money: those guys are shadows, pale imitations, of the true greatness that an indie-rock singer-songwriter can actually achieve. Soltero---now that's where it's at. I'd recommend him/them to anyone who likes Elliot Smith, Neil Young, Yo La Tengo, or even the Mamas and the Papas.
This is great stuff. Lyrically, there's nothing so good. Musically, there's nothing quite so mind-altering.
Soltero is genius, and this is, for sure, one of his best--definitely his quietest and most intimate. Listen to it to relax, to unwind, and to creep yourself out."
