Garza explained what inspired him to embark on a project outside Thievery Corporation.
“After the completion of the last Thievery record and tour and a trip to Sudan for the UN World Food Program [for which he and Thievery bandmate Eric Hilton are spokesman], I was ultimately inspired to make a very special personal musical reflection of my continuing journey,” Garza said.
“My goal was to make a record that reflected my tastes, both personally and musically. There are a lot of elements in this record that would be out of place on a Thievery album. There are still a lot of electronic elements, but a punk rock song on a Thievery album would probably come across as forced or contrived.
Several tracks from the disc, including a Blow Up Allstars remix of the second single “Mother of Illusion,” are streaming at www.myspace.com/robgarzamusic.
