Recorded at a dark time when troubled dreams revealed eyes in the treetops and the wind moaned so loudly it drowned out the ghosts. This album began life in early 2004 and was completed in a little studio
in Portland, Oregon later the same year.  Beta-Lactam Ring Records issued the results on a wonderful slab of vinyl with a cover by Jesse Peper that still gives me chicken skin. Bonus cut here is from the 10″ on BLRR’s Lactamase series – the masterful Tony Conrad is on the other side of that record which is a serious honour. –EK
