First Rags recording! All instrumentation and songwriting by Charlie Rags Davenport and produced entirely by Seb Shader. Recorded in Seb's weird living room thing mostly late at night during the hot visceral California summer.

"An intensely cathartic release by an incredibly talented and unique songwriter/production duo. Short in length but epic in content, Modest Songs of Perception is a world unto itself, where acoustic earthiness and unimaginable electronic elements combine to form a personal and emotionally relevant statement. It sounds like a coming of age landmark, the moment where uncertainty and disillusion eventually give way to an unexpected and blissful clarity. I wait patiently for a full length Rags recording." - Miles Chrysler, Baltimore, MA

"It's my shit." - Christine Canady, Santa Rosa, CA

"It's my shit too." - Josh Jackson, Santa Rosa, CA
