Album Notes
Lifetrap was written by New York City songer-songwriter Roxanne Fontana in 1979; recorded in England 2019. Roxanne Fontana records and writes in a variety of music styles, from dance/electronica to country. The song Lifetrap is the perfect marriage of two of the styles that she is known for: 'girl group' and jangly folk rock. Originally recorded as a demo in New York at the time of the writing, the song featured synthesizer work by Ivan Kral (Patti Smith). He also mastered the demo. The demo version was never released. After becoming an indie recording artist, Fontana, who loves the song, thought the original recorded version was "abysmal" and "insipid," and always planned to re-record it "properly." This version of the song, recorded in England in 2019, lives up to everything Roxanne hopes for. Produced by Roxanne Fontana at Gizzard's 16-track analog studio, Roxanne worked tirelessly on the arrangement, which includes saxophone and xylophone. The song is a narrative of a young, world-weary woman.
