It consists of songs written and recorded by John Darnielle. Darnielle has stated that most, if not all, of the album was written in Grinnell, IA. Most of the songs were performed by Darnielle singing and playing guitar solo, and recorded on his Panasonic RX-FT500 boom box; however, several songs also feature stringed instrumentation from Alastair Galbraith. Nothing Painted Blue's Peter Hughes adds backing vocals and guitar work on a few tracks as well.
