The debut release by the Boston-based duo of Mia Friedman and Katie McShane.
Stunningly beautiful music lightly tethered to several disparate traditions, but free of the trappings of any of them. Hilarious, tender, and overflowing with the kind of careful detail that will keep you returning over and over again.
