This was the first in what was intended to be a series of split records (only two were ever made, the second being Bitter Blossom). The only constraints were that each split needed to feature three songs, one by each artist plus one collaboration, and the title needed to be the name of a Magic card.
Billy and I made this one day in early 2013, recorded directly into the built-in microphone on my laptop, in his kitchen in Pittsfield, Maine. We did this over the winter, when I was back home visiting from school in New York. Each solo song eventually found a home in much louder and punkier bands. The duo song here was also re-worked for a very loud and agreesive band we had called Kefka, but no recordings from that project were ever released.
