In Their Words: "I’ve scattered pieces of myself from Morocco to Sweden to Bangladesh and back. Whenever I return home to California, I am whole again. Thanks to Sam Kassirer (Lake Street Dive, Bhi Bhiman, Josh Ritter) for making the Dance Cards' first foray into the studio as a band such a cozy experience. Between his guidance and the welcoming vibe of Great North Sound Society, we managed to capture the power of longing for home." — Laura Cortese
