released August 12, 2011

"HR 8799" was previously released as a digital-only EP at Milieu Music Digital. Recorded live in New York, December 2007. Mixed by Brian Grainger.

"Barefoot Blues" and "Live Drone Three" were previously released as part of the 13 Weeks Of Summer project at Attacknine Records in 2007. "Barefoot Blues" was recorded specifically for 13 Weeks Of Summer, and "Live Drone Three" was an outtake from the HD 98618 sessions.

"The Only Way You Can Go [Snow Version]" is a Jandek cover, with the primary version of the cover set to appear on an Attacknine release by Brian Grainger in 2011. The "snow version" was a secondary alternate mix of the track, assembled by Brian, covered in chorus effects and named in homage to the Jandek album "Somebody In The Snow".

"Improvisation For Organ & Guitar" previously appeared on the Exercises In Obscurism invitation-only compilation at Second Sun Recordings in 2008. Recorded in South Carolina, with mixing and production by Brian.

"Pine Reduction" is a previously unreleased piece, assembed by Brian from parts recorded for a scrapped acoustic VCV recording, sometime in 2008.
