This is the real DIY: best friends, acoustic guitars, apartment recordings, collaborative artwork, and hand-assembled final product. Selling Our Faces to Photobooths is where Intense Human Victories began. Side A contains a batch of Adam's haunting ballads and trenchant commentary in the vein of JEFF MANGUM and ROCKY VOTOLATO. Side B features the acoustic newscore of The Informant, sounding something like PHIL OCHS on meth or CRASS sans electricity. Acoustic jams that stand apart from the navel-gaving and Chris Carraba-worship that got old more than a decade ago? What an idea! Three different color sleeves available (wine and cheese; cappuccino; and martini), but each one is unique!
