"Multi-instrumentalist Bob Bucko Jr. (BBJr) recorded this set of contrasting sides for Tymbal in equally-contrasting situations. The A-side features layered, overdubbed pieces composed and recorded at various locations in the midst of a spring 2015 tour of the western United States. The B-side finds BBJr continuing to hone his prodigious solo guitar skills from his home base in Iowa. Feelling a bit like an extension of the diverse approaches found on his brilliant "Tearjerker" LP for Captcha Records, you'll definitely want to keep your doors propped open as the album title suggests, and maybe your neighbors will get into this tape as deeply as you." - Scott Scholz, Tymbal Tapes
