Includes the two tracks from the LP, plus a lengthy bonus track "Medusa." The first two tracks clank and shift back and forth, in what has been compared before to the sounds of an rocking boat. The steady slow progression keeps up an ever slightly changing zone of contemplation, pretty charged material actually. Medusa starts quietly and is very subtle. It's really atmospheric, almost like a distant background until scrapes and technical sounds poke infrequently in. There's some commonality to TAC (Tom Cox) in this track, where some of the performers created sounds almost have an animal voice quality, and it's as though Dilloway has let the sounds of the studio itself into the mix. There's a quietude of clicks and whirs which could be a live microphone picking up the production equipment and spinning reels. It's abstracted far enough away that the performer doesn't even seem present in this last track - quiet vacant stuff than ends with some loud tape hiss.
