Production

In the summer of 2011, while the band was waiting for Wilderness to be released, The Features went into the studio and recorded their fourth album.[3] The sessions were recorded live in Vancouver, Washington, at Ripcord Studio without metronomes or overdubs (other than vocals). All of the recorded songs were new and had been written in about a month.[4]

Rumors of the recordings spread throughout the fan community in the autum of 2011. At the time, it was suggested that the album may be called "Portland" and that it would feature "Tenderly" and "This Disorder". Rumors also indicated that it could have updated versions of "Stagecoach" and "Harold".[5] Unfortunately, these rumors proved false.
