"For those who may not have known him, Pat Carroll was a Michigan based singer songwriter among many other things. In 2013, he passed away due to cystic fibrosis. Earlier that same year, he released a remarkable album titled 'Glow in the Dark'. The album is a masterpiece. In addition to creating that album, Pat left a whole slew of songs which were released by Earthwork Music called 'After Dark' in three volumes. Its a collection of b-sides and alternate versions of songs. 'Two Places at Once' is one of those tracks and the first time I heard it, I fell in love with it. Its haunting, cryptic, melodic, and pretty much everything I want in a song. We recorded our version of this song while tracking in Lawton, Michigan. At first, we tried to recreate it at close as possible but it just wasn't working so we upped the tempo a bit, ran the vocals through a crunchy guitar amp, and laid down some synth for the melody. I think Pat would dig it."
