"The [album] title came from a recipe card in my grandma's recipe box," says Brian Moen of Peter Wolf Crier. His bandmate Peter Pisano explains further: "It's an attitude."

Peter Wolf Crier also describe Plum Slump, the duo's most collaborative record in their discography, as "post-critical." "If you really want to make something authentic, don't really try to hard," says Pisano.
