More Info
4th album from Montreal singer-songwriter Leif Vollebekk, following the Polaris Prize-nominated "Twin Solitude".

“Anything that I wouldn’t ever want to tell anyone—I just put it on the record,” Vollebekk says: tenderness and
violence, sex and rebirth, Plato and Julie Delpy. A story told through details—“the sun through my eyelids,” “a sign on
the highway covered in rain.” The songs came fast—recorded a week here, a week there, initially just Leif and a
drummer. “After each take, we’d go into the control room and listen back and see how it felt,” he says. “If it didn’t
feel right we’d do it again, or switch from piano to guitar, or change the drum sound, or the microphones.” Once they
got it, he’d move on. Never at rest, always in movement: 10 different tracks for 10 states of motion—each with its
own pulse, drawing the listener in.
