‘Live In… New York City’ was written & recorded entirely on an 8-track recorder by Crick in his New York City apartment over the span of four-weeks during the winter of 2018. Performing the majority of instruments himself, Crick has delicately created a world of delusion within the walls of his New York City apartment.
The album was compiled from these original recordings & additional instruments were added thereafter. Early versions of the album were heard by Mac DeMarco who offered to mix the album in his home studio in Los Angeles.
The “live” here refers not to the album’s format, but its tenor. This is a studio album that celebrates the most wondrous parts of just being alive and in love, alive and just hanging about, alive and playing music, alive and being surrounded by the hustle and bustle of a new, endlessly fascinating city.
