Terrible went back to school and let it’s brain loose. It studied people. It studied turkeys. It tried to study French.

Terrible found part of itself it remembered only from childhood, and it also watched a lot of Kyle videos.

But most importantly, Terrible found someone just as terrible. They taught it about itself. They taught it about ears. They taught it about feelings. They taught it about nasty vegan food.

And then they had to leave.

Oh well, shit happens.

Over the course of these four months, Terrible made this album.
It’s all for you.
And it’s all for free.
So download it, share it, and dance with it!

Special thanks to Justin Dower for being the go-to advisor on all things Terrible.

And to everyone else who supported Bike. Barista. Bullshit.

Love all a y’all,

~ Max

It's a celebration of fun and derivative sounds and liking music because it sounds good even if it doesn't have a fucking point. ... more
