townsppl is alexander stanton, or part of him anyway. mostly the part that makes slightly honest fuzzy folk pop on the computer with poorly constructed 60’s sears harmony guitars. it’s also the part that says a song can be whatever it wants to be, that a song neither carries nor respects preconceived notions. it’s the part that thinks cd’s should come as venus fly traps and music itself should be immediate and free. its the part that likes bars and likes music in them but not always. townsppl is the part of alex that does things for the sake of the things themselves, and could just as well never leave the bedroom (the kitchen actually–the acoustics are much better). there are other parts.
care and feeding, the first record from townsppl was created with the help of jake hanner of donora. it was conceived and crafted over the course of 2011-12 and self-deployed for free at townsppl.com on april 1, 2013. the live counterpart to townsppl will be performing in may 2013. details are yet to come.
its hard to explain why i'm not using capital letters right now, but i'm not. if this is inconvenient, here is a properly capitalized version.
