Timofei Gerber Holy crap! Even on their 'not really an album' album, Doomtree are amazing. There's more experimenting than on the 'real' albums and it's remarkable. Hot monotony/a hundred fathers/slow burn/flex - I couldn't decide on a favourite song. Favorite track: Hot Monotony.

Jacob Carson My introduction to Doomtree was 'No Homeowners (Renter's Rebate)' on Myspace. Years later I'd attempt to look up "that track with the woman rapping a lot of words that began with the letter S".

Lucky for me I did. I mostly went through their discography backwards from No Kings, but the quality stays high no matter which direction you're travelling. Favorite track: Hot Monotony.

In case you didn’t know:

False Hopes is a CD series put out by the Doomtree Corporation.

False Hopeses are records that we release to provide new music to our fans and family while we work on “real” albums, soldier through a variety of predictable misadventures, recover those albums from water-logged computer equipment, decide we are in a different place artistically, and start again from scratch.

They’re sort of like mixtapes, but we gave them a proper name to avoid getting them confused with all of the actual mixtapes we make for crushes, younger siblings, lovable nerds, and strength training.

This is the eleventh (or twelfth) False Hopes. It is also the first to feature the entire Doomtree crew.* It is comprised of outtakes and broken bits. And a collaborative remix. And a hearty thumbs up.

This is NOT the official Doomtree crew album. That is a whole ‘nother beast, my friend.
If you’ve purchased this disc before the crew album drops, consider it an appetizer.
If you purchased it afterwards, consider it a novel companion piece.
If you purchased it thinking it was the crew album, then frankly I don’t know what to tell you other than:
Thank you for your interest and your patience.
Your continued support is what gets us out of bed in the afternoon.

Ted Romeo, CEO Doomtree Recording Corporation.

Now you know.
