David Horvitz, road manager for indie rock band Xiu Xiu, devised the idea to document the band’s tours by encouraging fans to bring Polaroid film to shows. Photographs of life on the road were shot and returned to the fans, but not before Horvitz scanned them and compiled a visual diary that captures the non-musical, bare-naked zen of touring life.These images mirror the landscapes through which we all may travel, signposted with poignant boredom and sublime absurdity, of which we should all be aware. Includes a soundtrack recorded and re-mixed exclusively for the book.

Includes a soundtrack recorded and re-mixed exclusively for the book by the likes of This Song Is a Mess But So Am I, Grouper and The Yellow Swans. The soundtrack also features field recordings made by Horvitz as the Xiu Xiu crew crisscrossed the United States. Hardcover. 128 pages.
