All compositions by Erik Friedlander (ASCAP) except "Gentle Bonds" which was written by Erik Friedlander & Teho Teardo

"Lee Av," "Assasins or Bridge Blowers," "Wag," and "Out, Out" were recorded by Scott Solter, August 22-23, 2005 at Pueblo Studios, San Francisco, CA; mixed by Scott Solter at The Tiny Telephone, September 7, 2005. Keyboards and guitars for "Gentle Bonds" were recorded by Teho Teardo in Pordenone, Italy.

All other tracks were recorded and mixed by Erik Friedlander at Arconomics during 2008-10.

The title "Assasins or Bridge Blowers" is taken from Cormac MacCarthy's Child of God. "Wag" is from Dreamsongs by John Berryman; "Out, Out" from Robert Frost. All these texts were used as jumping-off points for improvisation in the studio during the 2005 sessions (orig. for "Block Ice & Propane")
