Below is a commentary by the label.

"SG" is an album of sentimental guitar escapism by Andrew Pekler.It's nothing short of a return to Faitiche. "For Lovers Only / Rain Suite" contains 10 songs made only with an electric guitar and a few effects (plus a recording of rain).Pekler is trying to recreate the trend towards kitsch, experimentation and minimalism.

What does Pekler's pen name SG stand for?Sentimental guitar?Sound gallery?Shy guy?Sad Gnosis?Saudade glamour?Soft goth?We don't know, but we asked notorious Chicago romantic Sam Prekop what he thought of the album:

``I wonder how far the river flows, how far it is, how fast or slow it is.

It only takes a few seconds to remember
When in doubt.

Step by step, hands on, eyes open, clouds out, 1, 2, 3...
One step, two steps, three steps.

Where the moss is soft, you know that you are strong.How many hours and days?
I should have been careful, but maybe I forgot?

never mind.
When I wake up, in my arms, where the river flows, slowly.
One two three, one two three.''

Faitiche:

"SG is none other than Andrew Pekler returning to faitiche with an album of sentimental guitar escapism. For Lovers Only / Rain Suite features ten tracks made using only an electric guitar and a handful of effects pedals (plus some additional recordings of rain) and finds Pekler once again attempting to reconicile his tendencies towards kitsch, experimentation and minimalism. What does Pekler's pseudonym SG stand for? Sentimental Guitar? Sound Gallery? Shy Guy? Sad Gnosis? Saudade Glamor? Soft Goth? We don't know, but we asked notorious Chicago romantic Sam Prekop for his take on the album – his reply:

It's a wonder where the rivers go and far, how fast or slow. 

Just seconds to remember, who can forget,
when you are lost. 

I think to recount every step, in both hands, eyes open, the clouds unfold, one two three. 
Every other step, just as well.

Where the moss is soft, you know strong. How many hours, days?
I could have been careful, did I forget? 

Never mind. 
Waking up, in these arms, where the rivers go, slow. 
One two three, one two three.”
