This single disc LP was the first solo release of two-time Grammy Awards Producer of the Year nominee Blake Mills who has gone on to release four more solo albums and produced and recorded with artists such as Alabama Shakes, Fiona Apple, Bob Dylan, John Legend, Perfume Genius, Jim James, Moses Sumney, Laura Marling, Phoebe Bridgers, Cass McCombs, The Killers, Sara Bareilles, Weyes Blood, Pino Palladino and Randy Newman. His most recent album Mutable Set was praised by Pitchfork as “a hushed collection that floats through the subconscious like a tender dream” and earned their Best New Music title.


"His playing — off-kilter and atmospheric, with echoes, but never imitations, of jazz and Latin styles — grew singular and distinctive, especially for such a young player.” New York Times


“The record blankets stark confessions about romance gone wrong with layers of atmospheric instrumentation: gauzy keyboards, swirling strings, hypnotic percussion and, of course, Mills’ guitar work.” Los Angeles Times


“Sounds like a dream-journey through Los Angeles singer-songwriter history in a phenomenally well-stocked guitar shop.” Rolling Stone


“They call musicians ‘Artists.’ Blake Mills? He really is”Huffington Post


 “Might just be the best guitarist on the entire planet.” Noisey


"A guitar virtuoso”Chicagoist


 When Mills is at his best, he’s able to meld his virtuosic guitar playing with simpler songwriting tendencies. The results are never explosive, but often yield tracks that ebb and flow, push and pull; the stuff that sticks.” Passion of the Weiss


“California guitar phenom” Rolling Stone

"Blake Mills is the last guitarist I heard that I thought was phenomenal." Eric Clapton, Rolling Stone


 “Blake’s musicality is limitless. He happens to be a breathtaking guitar player, but his real talent lies in what he chooses to play and how” Rick Rubin, LA Times
