From the Truly Bald website:
"I don't think I believe in 'outsiders'.. since to say so implies an 'inside', and who's to say where that is.. And the broadness and depth of ANYone's internal world far surpasses the wishy washy specifics of any collectively imagined one. This is ESPECIALLY the case when I think of the world of Larry Wish, an artist some may put in the outsider canon? IDK what the requirements are for that particular subcategory of person. â€˜doesnâ€™t careâ€™? anyways. larryâ€™s is a fully realized dream zone, full of goop, malappropriated grammar rules, sludgy emotional briar patches. He finds these specific uncomfortable phrasings and situations, zones so far into them. and in the Truly Bald fashion, seems to hope to transcend layers of faux-posturing and aloofity via exposing some raw slapstick romantic goof inside him / us. With his choices of songs to cover here on this collection (theyâ€™re all covers), larryâ€™s picked out some folks that operate in a similar nowhere zone of.. outside while deeply inside.. (pardon my employment of some vauge international art english, it feels right here). and also, pushing us further down the 'originality' vortex, Larry pulled together the only meticulously multitracked cover of a vaporwave song i've ever heard." - Jake Tobin
