Daughter of Swords (Mountain Man's Alexandra Sauser-Monnig)’s single “Prairie Winter Wasteland” was produced by Jeff Tweedy and recorded at his Chicago studio The Loft. Tweedy joins her on a variety of instruments, and his son Spencer is featured on drums, with Nick Macri on bass. The song “is a reflection on the way our emotional experiences of place are shaped in powerful and mystical ways by the people we’ve know there,” says Sauser-Monnig. “The way a certain quality of sunlight, or the call of a particular bird can conjure such specific associations, and can break your heart or lift you up.”
