This album was created with the cassette format in mind. The recordings are reinterpretations of past Oxherding compositions released across a series of three EPs from 2013-2016.

Thank you for listening. Thanks to friends and family who
made this happen. Special thanks to Molly, Broccoli,
Peter, Kat, Jeremy, Chris, Jon and Brian.

With respect to Kuòan Shiyuan and Thích Nhat Hanh.

Dedicated to everyone fighting against injustice and hatred
in my broken hometown of Saint Louis, Missouri.

" exquisite seamless patchwork of lush ambient passages, tranquil clouds of synth tones billowing across the heavens, angelic fermatas woven into patient melodies, finished with the perfect amount of rumbling drone..." Psi Lab

"An ambient stasis where sound seems to float in a moored position. This is a spiritual drone field for listeners to be mesmerized by the vastness it imparts." - Lost In A Sea Of Sound

"I love everything about this tape...Classic style drone in the vein of Stars of the Lid assembling and massaging massive walls of drone underneath open-skied production..." -Tome To The Weather Machine
