Product Notes

God Loves My Country is Balthrop, Alabama's sardonic response to the hyper-religious nationalism that seems to fuel the ongoing conflict here at home and around the world. The song asks the question, 'Does God bless America? Does God choose sides?' You'll have to answer that question for yourself. Accompanying the title track on the God Loves My Country EP are three new songs: World of Snow, an homage to winter in the form of a conversation between a dog and his sitter; Rainy Parade, a brief but driving exploration of irony and non-irony, or something; and Grave, a song about eternal love, and necrophilia. The sleeves for the EP were letterpressed by hand by members of the band on 100% recycled cardstock, with help from Cat Glennon and all the kind folks at Booklyn, a local book arts collective. The EP is also accompanied by an insert featuring four drawings by town drawer Toxey Goodwater, née Michael Arthur. Each copy of the EP is hand-numbered, part of a limited edition of only 250 pressed copies. About Balthrop, Alabama In 2006, Alabama-born songwriter-siblings Pascal and Lauren Balthrop moved to New York City to start a band and ended up founding a town. "Balthrop, Alabama" (population 11 or so) is their bustling folk rock township. Musically, the band straddles the ?ne line between antebellum and antifolk, reconstructing indie pop with songs of love, dead people, and dead people in love. In 2007, they released their double-album debut, "Your Big Plans and Our Little Town," on the nascent End Up label, to be followed up by a series of EPs in 2008.
