We are proud to be unveiling the lost releases of the Ghostly catalog. Ben Benjamin, of Midwest Product and PostPrior affiliation made these songs a decade ago and they sound as good today as they did then, if not better. A burned copy of the album ended up on the stereo at a party and caught the ear of Ghostly founder Sam Valenti IV in 2000. The signing of Midwest Product soon followed and this never-before-released album finally sees the light of day, 10 years on.

Ben Benjamin explains, "It [the album] was completed in April of 2000. I made the album for myself, never expecting anyone beyond a few friends to hear it. The title is a description of what inspired it. I would take long drives on back roads to clear my head, and I couldn't figure out what CD to play. This was before the convenience of mp3 players, and I just wanted an album that was effective in the background or foreground, allowing my attention to wander and return effortlessly. It worked for me, and it would please me a great deal if it happens to do the same for other listeners."

For Long Drives And Temporary Diversions
