Sadie Saturday Nite" looks back on a young girl's discovery of the SF punk scene. "Hey Austin" is a love letter to Austin, TX. "Love Letters from Laos" is an intercontental love story. "Jane Rearranged" is a poppy reflection on a New York story with shout outs to Susan Vega. "Mary O'Shea" is a gothic, celtic tale inspired by a visit to the Art Gallery of Ontario".
