The record can best be described as a collection of LoFi instrumentals that in general are on the slower, freshly baked side of things. Spoken word vocals overlap with sitar, bongos, handclaps, slide guitar, rhodes-y keys and an underlayer of found sounds from India, Thailand and Spain.
First Swell artwork is by Manuel.
