In the days when winter was for sledding, summer was for swimming, bedtime was for stories and sleeping was for dreaming, that's where you'll find The Listeners / These Train Tracks. For Breathe Owl Breathe, a release like this is nothing out of the ordinary - and at the same time it's anything but. The perfect combination of printmaking, song, and storytelling all wrapped up in a beautiful package.

After years of writing one-off children's stories, Micah Middaugh has created a limited edition canvas-covered book that reads from outside covers inward, ending at the center. And in the middle, slipped between a hand cranked copper block printed sleeve, are two new Breathe Owl Breathe songs pressed onto black 70 gram 7" vinyl. A project that took close to 3 years to complete, and all within the confines of his home studio (Cavern Lantern Wonder Welding) in the Jordan River Valley of Northern Michigan. Every single cover, page, sleeve, and block was made in Michigan,

The overall goal was to create something that looked timeless, felt satisfying to the touch, and appealed to any and all ages. Micah believes that it matters how a thing is made - if it pleases the hands, eyes, and ears. These sensibilities, alongside letter press printing techniques, inform every detail of The Listeners / These Train Tracks. Hold it, open it, and listen to what's inside.

Dedicated to friends, wherever they happen.
