Quite some time in the making (8 years. On and Off) and probably / maybe / not the most cohesive kptmichigan (aka Michael Beckett from Super Reverb, Schneider TM, the Beautiful New Born Children, ex-Tuesday Weld etc.) album yet.

7 songs "proper" (ie. with vocals) on the first side, which have been described as being something like a "classic" English pop songwriting and Krautrock interface.

5 instrumentals (ie. no vocals) on the second. No sequencing, lots of guitars which don`t sound like guitars, blurry, sprawling, dubby, hazy, from the hip.

Songs of loss (lots), love (quite a bit) and hope (a tiny bit).
