Palehound leader Ellen Kempner described the origin of the tracks found on YMCA Pool in saying, "I've had these songs laying around forever and could never really find a place for them on a record. After we toured with Bully, Alicia Bognanno offered to record some stuff for me at her house in Nashville, which seemed like a great opportunity. We spent two days hiding from the heat in her house recording... and also at Dave and Buster's. I love Alicia she is truly the best."
Her vocal range and her range of melodic ideas, combined with incredibly intriguing lyrics make this some of my favorite music to have stumbled on in months. I think Static Buzz is my favorite. Jasper Skydecker
