For fans of early Cursive (or Tim Kasher's solo material), "Like A Virgin Losing A Child"-era Manchester Orchestra, or any Midwestern emo / pop punk. Stream the song below for a taste.
The artwork is an impressive 6 panel fold-out with a two-color screen print on both sides. It is accented by a beautiful vellum pocket to house the 7" itself, creating layers upon layers of artwork within. Of course, each copy are hand-numbered as well!
