· The album was produced by Hunter and co-produced
and mixed by Chris Coady (Beach House, Cass
McCombs). Other production elements came from
Ariel Rechtshaid (Sky Ferreira, Vampire Weekend) and
Lower Dens’ Walker Teret. Additional recording and
production was done in Dallas, TX with John
Congleton (St. Vincent, The Walkmen).
