Recorded in their makeshift studio in an old boiler room at the foot of Mount Royal, the ten song debut album was written over the course of the brother's time in a city full of strangers, lovers, old ghosts and new friends.
Along with Sarah and Andres, the record also features Miles Perkin (Lhasa DeSela), Elizabeth Powell (Land of Talk), Nathan Moore, Jocie Adams (The Low Anthem), Elvis Perkins and Emma Baxter. It reads like a dusty journal of a traveler at the crossroads of good and evil. Hushed Americana lonesome and future-primitive delta blues clear the path for West African polyrhythms and classical motifs. It's all tied together by the commitment to the sources of the styles and their inherent connections to each other.
