About the Album

A very artful-yet-accessible album with great lyrics, memorable songs and rich orchestrations. In addition to the songs are a handful of haunting instrumentals which help to frame the overall work of the songs to a larger canvas. The music bridges a number of disparate genres including experimental music, Americana, cabaret, circus music, Appalachian string music, bluegrass music, old-time music, Southern Gospel, and funereal music. The understatedly beautiful cover artwork and illustrations, contained within the 12 page color booklet, are by Carson Ellis, best known for her work on albums by The Decemberists.
