Recorded at The Guest House in Olympia over the course of four years. Originally a small recording project. Sam Corey is feat. on most tracks. She came to Oly and her voice shook River's bedroom studio.
Most sounds and textures came the environment of constant change. Paul Williams, a guest house native, can be heard through the walls in the final track.
