The album format ... thing of the past, or still relevant? Ultimately, audiences will decide. But for Southpaw, we consciously set about writing an album with “Unhitched.” We started with a few tracks to see where the compass was pointing. Then, once we knew, we defined the experience we wanted to create and filled in the pieces. “Unhitched” is a mosaic of songs, each one a little different than the next, combined to create a listening party—full of ups and downs, tension and release, carelessness and seriousness. Like life. We hope you drop a “needle” on the record and enjoy it as it was intended.
