How the Day Sounds
Six-song EP released March 2008.
According to Laswell, this EP serves as a bridge between his 2006 record Through Toledo - it includes an expanded version of one album track and an outtake from the album sessions - and his next album, which will be released in summer of 2008. The songs grasp the spirit of transition: "Days Go On," "Salvation Dear," "Embrace Me," with the title track representing the general character of this collection. "High & Low," from Through Toledo, makes an appearance with an expanded version, including an orchestral backdrop. "What A Day," the final track (and Through Toledo outtake) sets a reflective tone.
The EP's songs were written, recorded, produced and performed by Greg Laswell at his home studio in San Diego, Dana Point and Santa Ana, CA. He has since relocated to Los Angeles.
