“A month spent in an old mill in the under belly of France. River swimming thrice a day. Hot nights soundtracked by the rattle of randy frogs. Scorpion fear. In the sheets, on the face.

“Hours of bird watching - no phone service. No wifi. 3 DVDs. Jurassic Park 1,2 & 3. Violin practice. Bread scoffing. Early morning coffee drinking beforethe sun was too hot to do anything but snooze in the thick walled house. Music in the afternoon after a dip in the river and a cold beer on the square.

“With all the ease and air needed, in this mysterious place, we made an album made for each other by one another with no hands, eyes or ears piercing the bubble other than our dear friend Steve who slid in under the door and took note of it all.” - Cate Le Bon

“This is a broken music. a crumble. It’s the music of the building we called home for a month. We’ve never made & recorded music in such a simple living environment.

“With all the ease and air we needed. We were in a town 8 miles over from Robert Crumb’s hidden residence. We lived in a mysterious place. We had a flock of bats over for dinner many nights. No internet, or a phone to look to.

We had a beautiful big stone house, a river, and from time to time a lovely elderly yet young-hearted couple who would visit. It was the opposite of what a typical recording experience usually is for any of us.

“We tried to capture all of this and put it on record.” - Tim Presley
