Written and Recorded in Middlesbrough, UK and San Pedro, USA in Jan 2013.

Music by Oli Heffernan.

Lyrics by Karen Schoemer.

Mixed by Mike Watt.

"[Its] poem-heavy, Tom Waits-ian style will surely get your head swirling with thoughts of smoke-filled cafes and basement-buried speakeasies. The vibe is so thoroughly calming that it's easy to forget that its lyrics are so sharp and cutting, bringing to mind a world since gone, where troubadours swam around the radio dial.

On top of it all, the release itself is a phenomenally gorgeous one, its rarity notwithstanding..."
