As a shiny new Strange Weather studio was being built in Brooklyn, Imaginary Johnny gathered (occasionally) to play with gear, catch up and record a song. This collection draws inspiration from photographer Diane Arbus, with each tune “loosely based” on a particular photo (click on the tracks to see the images). Arbus’ subjects and Arbus herself lead down a cluttered and morbid hole, but there is a beauty buried there. A light if you look.
