Recorded over the course of two shows and one practice in November 2015. All songs by Stray Owls.
"Sometimes things get weird in the country. Consider Stray Owls, a Mebane duo that twists familiar folk-rock forms in a way that suggests this band takes a lot of time to ponder those shapes. Neil Young’s spacious vistas dissolve into waves of psychedelic distortion, sped along by shape-shifting rhythms. Stray Owls maintain a strong melodic foundation to support this scatterbrained range of styles."- Jordan Lawrence (indyweek.com)
