The album was recorded at J Mascis’s Biquiteen Studios in Amherst, Massachusetts, beginning in late autumn 2019. After the sessions with Kurt Vile were disrupted, Mascis says he “ended up just mimicking a few things he’d done. I was listening to a lot of Thin Lizzy, so I was trying to get some of that duelling twin lead sound. But the recording session was pretty well finished by the time things really hit the fan. When the lockdown happened in March, that meant I was on my own. But it was cool.”
