Ettie Street Project is a collaboration between Tom Lattanand, Rob Gwin, and various musicians in the Bay Area music community. From 2007 through 2012, their Oakland studio on Ettie Street, the Orange Room, was a hub of musical experimentation, gatherings, and performances. This album reflects this time.
“The Simplest Possible Setup” is released as a tribute to one of our drummers, Jorgen Stensson, who passed away in December of 2012. Jorgen was a brilliant musician, DJ, and sound engineer whose meticulous ears pushed us and everyone around him to work at our highest levels.
