M. Ward’s sophomore album, following up Duet for Guitars – and what a wonderful album it is.

My copy is a 20th anniversary reissue on vinyl from Jealous Butcher Records which sounds amazing. Future Farmer did release a vinyl edition in 2009 but this one is remastered by Adam Gonsalves at Telegraph Mastering.

Liner notes added in January 2021 from Adam Selzer:

With the exception of “Ella,” “Archangel Tale” & “Pirate Radio Sermon” this album was recorded at my old studio, Type Foundry Recording . . . a ramshackle, two-room space in Southeast Portland, sandwiched between a Buddhist community center and a cash register repair shop. That has to symbolize something”
