The quote on Absolutely Kosher’s page says:
The “what was I thinking when I ignored this when it was released” debut from Montreal’s Spencer Krug, also of Frog Eyes and Wolf Parade. Rough and uncompromising, but gorgeous. Hell, it got our attention. On Global Symphonic.
I seriously could not agree more!!
Some facts on this record are that Spencer drew the cover art himself. From wiki:
Most of the material on this album was recorded by Spencer Krug using a cheap microphone connected to a standard PC in his bedroom. The songs were compiled from five different EPs, each in a different genre.
