"For the Lovespun Ramblings and Ghosts in our Shoes" is the culmination of nearly four years of effort, taking the band’s acoustic folk roots to a more modern sound by way of experimentation both in the studio and on the stage over the past decade in Milwaukee’s music scene. New instrumentation, both acoustic and electric, coupled with extensive use of looping during live performances informed a more complex production for their sophomore release. Themes in this album are simultaneously universal and intimate touching on love and loss and the journey we all take to find our way on a chaotic sea to the individual islands of our home.
