Album Notes
Over the course of two years, Boreas learned home recording from the ground up – threw out many times more material than ever ended up on the record – and became much more than the folk band they had been. They absorbed influences from Björk to The Books, from Animal Collective to Grizzly Bear, and ended up with an album that covers ground from bleak acoustic folk (the title track) to musique concrète (The Sport of Birds) to balls-to-the-wall guitar rock ((taos hum)) to bizarre imagist tribalism (Pretty Mouth and Green My Eyes). A vibrant sonic world is there for you to explore.

The album was recorded in houses and beneath underpasses; late at night in rooms left unlocked; under the open sky, inside a shower, and on the catwalk of a concert hall. Behind the music are captured crickets and night sounds, atmospheric chatterings, clicks, barely-heard voices, and the sound of gentle breathing. It is music alive with the noise of living.
