The Cigarette Duet is from an album I released earlier this year called Lil’ Golden Book. I recorded Lil’ Golden Book in various bedrooms I occupied from 2008-2011. I wrote The Cigarette Duet in about half an hour on a busted up Roland E-20 keyboard, sitting cross-legged on the floor of probably the most grim house I lived in during that time: an old villa next to a carpark occupied by homeless drug addicts who would often knock on the front door asking for water. Jonathan Bree of The Brunettes sing and plays guitar on it, and he made the music video which was recorded on a budget of $0 at my parents house. Things are looking up a bit now: Lil’ Golden Book has just been released on gold vinyl.
