Powerful and moving material, heartbreaking and hilarious, downtrodden and uplifting, suffused with longing, alienation, resilience and hop.

Throughout the album is Exene’s characteristic blend of folk, deep country and poppy, wide open spaces. The album brings together the potential and innocence of young love, the gravity of departure, and the symbolic changing of seasons.
Psychedelic desert pop music. Straddles delirium and ecstasy, when the vultures circling overhead look like doves. It's the sound of a bead of condensation rolling down a beer glass at a grimy cantina.
