It's surprising this record even got made,” bass player and songwriter Kristian Dunn reflects. “[Drummer] Tim’s dad died just before the recording was to begin. Obviously he needed to go back to Pittsburgh to be with his family. He returned to California relatively quickly, ready to work, and then I was struck with serious food poisoning.” As soon as one band member in the duo was ready to work, it seemed the other had something come up. Deadlines were rapidly approaching and the record wasn’t finished. “It was stressful, but it seemed to all work out,” Tim Fogarty adds. Appropriately, the record is all about family and the connection between parent and child. Opening with “Point Breeze” (an area in Pittsburgh in which Tim’s dad used to hang out when young) and moving right into “Scott Township” (an area of Pittsburgh where Fogarty did the same), the record is alive with sounds both futuristic and anachronistic. The record was written at their homes and practice studio in Atwater Village, and recorded with Cheney at Costa Mesa Recording Studio in Costa Mesa, CA. Over a decade plus together they’ve attained hard-won virtuosity with the devices, and can now concentrate on songwriting itself rather than logistics. By refusing to use anything pre-recorded live they’ve pushed themselves into new territory, now able to deftly recreate their complex compositions nightly.

In the end, of course, it all comes back to family; from Dunn and Fogarty’s own parents to Hook and Bates, to their own growing families. More dedications round out the record: “JD” (Tim’s dad), “We Lost A Giant” (a phrase used by a Pittsburgh Steelers radio announcer to describe Tim’s dad) and “Be Kind, Rewind” (a plea for respect for one’s ancestors). “I’m so relieved this record is finished. It was a lot of work… like family!” laughs Dunn.
