al Riggs makes a lot of music. Too much.

Since 2011 they’ve been releasing albums, singles, EPs, and more at a clip some have called “irresponsible” and “oversaturating” but the true heads have called “good”.
At a certain point some songs fall by the wayside; getting dropped from albums, getting reworked, seemingly without a home.
Now al Riggs and the kind folks at Husky Pants Records have found eight lucky little guys a forever home on the purposely low-stakes OH GOOD.

OH GOOD IT’S AL RIGGS collects songs originally recorded between 2019 and 2021, intended for release on I GOT A BIG ELECTRIC FAN TO KEEP ME COOL WHILE I SLEEP or the upcoming THEMSELVES but never quite fitting. And yet oddly they seem to fit snugly together here. A combination of home recorded mini-epics mixed with sessions produced by Brad Cook (Megafaun, Hiss Golden Messenger, behind the window for many others) await the hungry listener. Wheezing mellotron, chunky banjo, vibraphone, a frankenstein-shaped vocal looper, and the humble nylon string guitar swirl around and around on Riggs’ first vinyl release, mastered by the great Patrick Klem.
