It features her Throwing Muses bandmate David Narcizo on drums and with strings by the McCarricks. The album peaked at #27 on the US's Billboard Top Heatseekers Album Chart.
In early 2007 Hersh toured throughout Europe and the US to promote the album, first solo in a series of instore performances and then with her 50 Foot Wave band mates Bernard Georges and Rob Ahlers as well as The McCarricks. In October 2007 she will do a short tour of Australia and New Zealand.
