The new album was recorded with celebrated producer Ben Allen, best known for his work with Animal Collective, Washed Out and Youth Lagoon.

In 2011 solo singer, songwriter and guitarist Drake Margolnick joined local musicians Matthew Padgett (guitar, backing vocals), Michael Finster (drums, programming) and Grant Harding (keys) forming Flagship.
