Floor Sitter is a celebration of incompetence. These songs are an homage to the hazy days of living your early 20s in San Francisco, inspired by the off-kilter genius of musicians who can't quite get things right, attempting to make pop music despite a natural deviant turn in their ears. This release is a practice run for even more deviance to come.
