Artwork[edit]

Regarding the album's artwork, Matt Mondanile noted: "The first record – all those stripes – that’s this artist in Finland named Jan Anderzen. He makes this insane-o music, but I was super into his art for a long time. He just makes these crazy paintings. I always want artists to do things."[1]

Reception[edit]

AllMusic3.5/5 stars[2]

In a positive review, Allmusic's Jesse Jarnow wrote: "perhaps the most productive way to think of Mondanile's work is as beach-time ambience, like Boards of Canada, should they choose to roam the vast Jersey Shore of the mind instead of their own icy wastes.[2]
