Stolen Shoes on the Beaten Path came about after I kept writing mellow songs that weren't anything like what I was doing with Vernacular Monkey. I was singing more falsetto and playing more simplistic, chordal songs. SSotBP is more Rock-based rather than SkaPunk based.
This EP was recorded at a friend's house. If I remember correctly, it was recorded in one night (after smoking a decent amount of pot) and mixed a week or so later.
