It was mostly Zach Barocas' idea. The band would venture south to J. Robbins' Baltimore studio to create something resembling a live album. In November 2005, Imaginary Johnny recorded and mixed this stark EP in two days with Zach on drums, Eric Morse on toy store miscellany, Adam Sylvia on guitar, and songwriter Stuart Wolferman on vocals and keys. This is the first IJ recording that can convincingly be called rock, and it maintains a journal entry kind of fascination.

“At Your Leisure” feels less like a definitive statement than a question in process of being asked, one with an answer worth pursuing just as it says on the cover. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jul 27, 2018
