A return to the instrumental work found in the seminal "Age Cowboy Presents..." artshow soundtrack releases from the early '10s.

Over the 2019 holiday break, J & Emily recorded the wildly successful, exotic, and emotive release VA/MD II. So over the 2020 holiday break, J & Emily recorded again, but with no emphasis on a VA/MD "deliverable", rather a freedom to "see what happened".

Like those soundtracks, there's little compromise here. Just a reach and subtle gesture that mimes the brushing of space aside.

Basics for three songs ("Gorilla Boiz", "Three Pines", "We Lost A Tree") were quickly printed. Emily excused herself to the comforts and sanity of the house while J continued... Tracks from two archived sessions ("Timber In The Drive", "Jamming Myself") were repurposed. And more tracks ("Playing Catch With Adam & Dave", "They're Immature In That Space", "One Who Dead") were summoned from other existences.

The rest was ground, sprinkled, and puffed into the Yard.

A thread runs deep, tying together the earliest days of J & Em collaboration in drums & bass to the present. A versioning of "Raspberry Jam" - the first song on the first soundtrack, itself an attempt to cover a Madlib beat - is sampled as the climax of "Jamming Myself". Both reference monologues from the mouth of Captain Ahab for some absurd reason that perhaps we can make sense of in future meets...
