Backstory

This was a christmas present for my family. At the time, I was making a series of "dedication" albums, each for a particular person or group of people in my life — family, roommates, friends, etc.

For the cover, I was in the heat of my bad-compression-low-budget-horror phase — see Pizza Face.

Kiri Rix plays flute on Lar de Clune, and sings and purrs on Mewl Beans.

Ivan Reese sings and plays piano, several guitars, bass, drums, several organs, xylophone, cello, glockenspiel, whisks, grating, granite blocks, tuning pipes, chrometta, melodica, tin whistle, double flute, bass clarinet, and other stuff.

Bonus

Track #2, Tanama, has a few sections with densely-layered vocal tracks. They sound pretty neat on their own, so I posted them on soundcloud so you can hear them in isolation.

Some of the vocals happened in this parking garage.
