Bonus material not found on previous versions including video footage with stereo and 5.1 surround sound mixes of the group's Fillmore East performance on New Year's Day, 1970.
Frontman/singer-songwriter Hrishikesh Hirway started putting together the album while experiencing some sleepless nights in Los Angeles; Tony Hoffer (Beck, Phoenix, Air) produced the organic/electronic LP "about living on the fumes of dreams and hopes, which also happen to be what the plastic city of Los Angeles is built on, and what it is constantly confirming - and betraying." Check out the single "Sunlight" below.
