[From sticker on shrinkwrap:]
Solipsim (Collected Works 2006-2013)
Eight-song archival release from Mike Simonetti's tenure as owner of Italians Do It Better - spanning from 2006-2013, before founding his new live duo project Pale Blue (3) and label 2MR.
The name Simonetti originated from the personal name SImon, from the verb "sama" meaning "to listen". Thus, the name Simonetti means "God has listened," referring to the gratitude of the parents who having wished for a child, had their prayers answered.

"You have to carry the fire."
"I don't know how to.”
"Yes, you do.”
"Is the fire real? The fire?”
"Yes it is.”
"Where is it? I don't know where it is.”
"Yes you do. It's inside you. It always was there. I can see it.”
- Cormac McCarthy
