Notes

SotL utilized field recordings of McCafferty in his studio while he painted the cover for this album, which he did while listening to the music of previous SotL releases.

'The merging of color and sound is something we've thought about quite often. Why should the visual artist be confined to the packaging while the "musician" is in charge of the rest - especially when both dimensions may reflect back into each other. We wanted to craft a sound environment that is both true to Jon's painting as well as the larger New York context which envelopes his work.'

Gatefold cardboard sleeve, embossed on front.
