This little collection contains six songs that are either demos from when I was writing Hugs (which took like three years, believe it or not) or songs I wrote when I first started Up n Adam (specifically "Oh, Ally" and "Post-Its") way back in 2012 or so. It may not be a close detailed look into my "genius," but it is a cute companion to Hugs. I hope you like it! lovelovelove

All songs written, performed, recorded, mixed, and otherwise brought into being by Adam Stutsman.

"Side Hugs" album art by Chloë Malmquist.

Max Bemis is the lead singer of Say Anything, one of my favorite bands. He yells a lot in his songs, and that's what the weird background yells in the demo for "The Ice Cream Song" reminded me of, hence the off-brand Max Bemis version. In case you were wondering.

Sound clip in "Oh, Ally" from a vlog my old friend Ally made once. This song is a little bit about our friendship and a little bit just cutesy for the sake of cutesy. I was really into that when I first started making music.

Sound clip in "Romero + Juliet (demo)" from George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead. Just like in Hugs.

Yes, I was actually taking a shower during this version of Dragon Noms.
