This album marked a different sonic direction for DEADMAN. The effects and processors were put away and an emphasis on natural instruments and tones were focused on. The album was recorded at Steven's studio: a 100 year old victorian house that was made entirely of wood. The record was influenced by The Band's approach to record making on their album Songs from Big Pink and The Basement Tapes.
The follow up to "Our Eternal Ghosts". The record has a theme about grief. Started in Steven's remote studio in McGregor, TX then overdubs with Mark Howard in Los Angeles, then finished in Lockhart, TX in Steven's new installation. Daryl Johnson (Daniel Lanois, Emmy Lou Harris, )makes an appearance on the album.
