It was recorded in bursts over several months of 2015 in their friend My War Matt's basement in Pittsburgh. Unlike previously, the songs were conceived and recorded in blocks, which resulted in a more experimental feel. But this is no chin stroking curate's egg. If you like loud, double guitar leads, you're in luck, because this album is carpeted with them.
On a song like "Bodies," it sounds as if you've walked into the biggest Guitar Center, but, you know, not terrible. Keeping it all locked down is the rhythm section of drummer, Cary Belback and bassist, Gavin Jensen. They allow the downright prettiness of a song like "Red Alphabet" to shine, and the lyrics on the anti-sexism thrash of "Crisis Time" to punch through. Tim Midyett (Silkworm, Bottomless Pit, Mint Mile) and Protomartyr are also featured as guest vocalists on "Rope" and "Why'd You," respectively.
