Announcing The Long and the Short and the Tall

“No one knows for certain when our title song was written, but during World War II it became a (sort of) patriotic ode to allied soldiers, often sung with profane lyrics. Its relevance here is that we have one long story and four short ones, including one about a mountain. The cover art captures the long and the short of it. And we have animals: dogs and cats and cranes—some speaking, others mute—butterflies and loons.”
