The band elaborates:
"On tour with Jeff Mangum last year, we stopped and recorded a few ditties at locations that blew our minds. One song that seemed fitting was Townes Van Zandt's 'Close Your Eyes', since we're both huge fans of Townes and we were both missing our families desperately.
Utah's Arches State Park was one of the most breathtaking places either of us had ever seen, so we decided to pull over and cut the basic track there. (It's about as desolate and cowboy lookin' as any daydream we'd ever had about Townes.) We recorded Aaron in the desert and a tour-bloated Dave after the trip was over, safe in Brooklyn with his wife as the videographer. Hope you like it; we can't wait to get back to Utah! TF"
