My experience in 2020 was certainly not unqiue. Like for many people, it was one of the worst years of my life.
Fortunately, long ago, I learned to cope with the challenges of life by channeling my struggles into art; in this case, three experimental LPs.
Along came 2021, a year we all hoped would be an escape, a time of renewal.
Maybe things haven't gotten off to the best start here either, but nevertheless, my plan was to revert back to the standard guitar/vocals fare. My next release would be an acoustic EP.
I was gonna hunker down and write some new songs, even if it killed me.

Then out-of-the-blue, Luís van Seixas of SciFi Industries messaged me, asking me to contribute music to his label Thisco Records for its 20th anniversary.
I cannot express how flattered and excited I was. Because I feared my next release would not suit the Thisco brand, I asked him if I could contribute a best-of compilation of worthy tunes instead, to which he agreed.
So through the archives, I went.

With the aid, support, stipulations, and contributions from Luís and Robin Storey of Zoviet France/Rapoon over the past two weeks, Ignorant Wonderland has become a concise, refined, nine-headed hydra.
It is currently the closest embodiment of my hopes and dreams, my loves and losses, my joys and nightmares, my constant optimism and tireless cynicism, my regression and progression...my becoming a young man in his own time and place.
The material herein spans 2016-2020. All tracks have been evolved to reflect the new context which we all now find them in, some minutely and some substantially, though you won't find any of them sound better elsewhere than here.

All I hope for is that by the end of your listening experience, I will have made you feel something. Thank you for your time,
Kiefer Gorena
