In the Autumn of 2013 Courtis contacted Moore to say he would be in Europe in March, 2014 and suggested they get some dates together for a tour. Moore suggested they make a new album to coincide with these dates. They promptly exchanged sounds and each set about creating one long piece each. Recorded at their respective homes in Buenos Aires and Brooklyn these two tracks, King Pancreas and Punk Butter have now been released through Moore’s own Earbook Recordings label.
