Recorded in 2005 - primarily in hallways, closets, freezers, elevators and other found spaces within an abandoned sanitarium - this collection of melodic, ambient fragments is special in its weaving of so many subgenres. Description is somewhat futile. Years of dedicated listening and fearless experimentation has made for a truly unique sonic diary of ghosts; a spiritual paean of many emotions to the dwellers of the lost sanitarium.

The album was originally released as a limited edition compact disc that was available at live shows, before being reissued for a second limited edition of compact discs, featuring custom designed and hand inked packaging from Gears of Sand Recordings in 2008. The album was then re-released digitally by Baresongs Music in 2012, and made available through Bandcamp.

This combination of soundscapes and music would become the soundtrack to the Northern Valentine produced film "Leopard's Mouth", which was created four years after the original recording, in 2009. The film debuted as an audio-visual performance, at The Philadelphia Fringe Festival, at Eastern State Penitentiary, with the band providing a live score.

The digital download comes with 20 screen production stills, "behind the scenes" photos from the making of the Leopard's Mouth recording and film, and a video excerpt of a 5 minute segment of the song "Leopard's Mouth", as it was performed at Eastern State Penitentiary.

"Northern Valentine’s music delivers a sense of floating in space or a communion with nature where the listener is enveloped in clouds of billowing sonics. The listener’s imagination can run wild creating images to accompany this ambient soundtrack...In sum, an awesomely hypnotic listening experience."...Jeff Penczak (Foxy Digitalis) ... more
