The album is described this way by producer Ripley Johnson: "The
band was aiming to capture a timeless, natural sound, not quite of
the present, past, or future, but phasing in between the consciousness
of now and the stoned dream-state of the eternal. Sort of a back
porch jam just as the shrooms are starting to kick in. Handmade
and human, but also cosmic and transcendental. The goal is to let
the music speak for itself and hopefully find a weird and wonderful
audience somewhere out there."
That description feels right for an album which seems perfect for
those soft ephemeral moments, and that softly wraps you in the
feeling of walking at twilight. Mellow but upbeat the album it's easy
to imagine the leaves changing colors.It's psych rock, and dificult to
describe without getting poetic; dreamy and insular, it's easy to get
lost in this album.
Produced and recorded by Ripley Johnson (Moon Duo, Wooden
Shjips), and mixed by Chris Cohen (Captured Tracks, Deerhoof), the
album finds its niche in the hazy sonic landscape of private press
country and psych records, and alongside artists like Relatively Clean
Rivers, Jim Sullivan, Kenny Knight, and countless other explorers of
the pastoral underground.
