Esopus CD #20: Personal Effects

For this latest audio compilation, Esopus invited 10 musical acts to create new songs inspired by items from among their personal belongings. Selections ranged from deeply personal family heirlooms inherited from distant ancestors to found objects, brick walls, and, in one notable case, a significant other.
