Tim used to be in the band Veronica Lake back in the early '90s, in case you care about stuff like that. Songs are Easy was produced, engineered and generally made better by Fred Thomas of Saturday Looks Good to Me, City Center and Fred Thomas. He got the sounds down, tweaked them into poppy weirdness, and played all the cool guitar parts. He sang a bunch and worked some serious keyboard magic too. Songs are Easy was mastered by indie pop legend Archie Moore of Black Tambourine and Velocity Girl. He took some time off from winning Emmys to give the songs some warmth and depth.
