Episodic Memory is intended to close out my 2020-21 global pandemic chapter and set the stage for what is to come as we look ahead. Some of these songs are vignettes encapsulating very specific moments over the last 10 years of Crystal Beth-ing, and others set the tone for some of the things calling to us from just over the horizon. It’s the end of one chapter, and the beginning of the next. It is that very moment when as you turn the page, it is vertical – just for a second – showing you what you just completed and what is to come, all in one glance. This is the first sonic glimpse of the Fleenor/Faide collaborations to come.
