...Listen to this record with the lights low. Listen to it on an old radio, cradled next to your ear. This is the sound of two people, singing and playing their songs. Forget the years in between.
“The way you made it That’s the way it will be.”

The insert and album artwork were designed by John Dyer Baizley, a painter and musician notable for his album cover and t-shirt art for bands including Kylesa, Darkest Hour, Daughters, Vitamin X, Flight of the Conchords and his own band, Baroness for which he is the singer and rhythm guitarist.
The artwork was converted to metal plates and hand printed with Heidelberg Presses on archival-quality museum board at Aardvark Letterpress in Los Angeles, CA.
