    Note: Even though "Foiled EP N°1" has 10 tracks, all the songs on this EP are meant to run into each other like one continuous 11-minute song, with no audible spaces between them. So it sounds much much better as a download (streaming on Bandcamp is slightly cheap-sounding in comparison).

    BONUS: Download includes a color .jpg of the collage-illustrated "Foiled EP N°1" song worksheet. Hooray!

about

This Half-handed Cloud "Foiled EP N°1" is a mixture of sound collage pieces John has worked on since living in Belgium (2011), + cassette-taped multi-track demos from there that didn't get re-recorded as songs for the "Flying Scroll Flight Control" album, + sounds for the Half-handed Cloud website (2004), + appropriated 4-track songs (going back to 2007) that were originally covers, or used in the Half-h touring show, etc, with new (2015) melodies, instrumentation, and Pauline letter lyrics integrated with them.

This EP also has a sister to it, "Foiled EP N°2," (released November 2015), which sources different material from the exact same periods. A big point of these EPs was not to overthink them too much or devote loads of time to fiddling with their sounds, so they're pretty lo-fi, scrappy, sketchy, and a little sparky.
