In 2012 after 2 years, 3 EPs and several national tours, Chicago's Dastardly slowed down, turned the corner and parked. The band holed up in a coach house in Wicker Park and retooled their folk-based sound, dialing in a new vision that showcases singer/songwriter/producer Gabe Liebowitz’s darkly cinematic new songs. His love of lushly produced albums came into play, with the goal of using modern recording techniques to capture the band’s tight arrangements and traditional instrumentation.

The title track evolves from its foreboding opening to dramatic dreampop choruses and martial drumming, setting the stage for an album packed with experimental sounds and gorgeous harmonies, deceptively upbeat but dark at the core.The album was recorded with Jonathan Alvin at Chrome Attic using the usual guitar/bass/drums as well as accordions, bowed basses, clarinets and other acoustic instruments resulting in dreamy songs that nonetheless retain a driving percussiveness. Lyrically the record addresses desire and dislocation, death and loss and allusions to the American songbook, peppered with imagery of primeval natural beauty. Imaginative tribute is paid to great American standards such as the tag of “Nature Boy” (made popular by Nat King Cole) in “Bridges and Rivers” and a cover of “St James Infirmary”, a traditional that became a signature song for Louis Armstrong in New Orleans.
