This EP was recorded during the winter of 2011, during a two night stay, in a cabin in Northern Ontario. Although the true recording landscape was that of a forest in the dead of winter, it really does sound like the EP is coming from an isolated radio station somewhere in outer space. The album art may have slightly influenced this feeling of outer space, but then I'm pretty sure the EP's sound influenced the album art first. Plus, a cabin in Northern Ontario pretty much is outer space.
The songs were arranged and recorded by Eric Reid & Jonathan Crane and those additional female vocals come from Minnesota's lovely Aubben Renée (who some might know better as Craven Canary); it is probably the noisiest blind duet she has ever done. Here is what Eric has to say about the EP:
THE iNDie MACHiNE: “Named one of the Top 30 Canadian songs of 2011."
365 Albums a Year: “They produce an energy reminiscent of vintage Strokes, as if the speed at which they play their instruments will ward off the encroaching frigidity of the snowy, vanishing cities they sing about.”
THE iNDie MACHiNE: “We are super stoked they took the time to contact us and are even more excited to share the music with you”
