The title of the album is a reference to Ghersi's feminine spirit as portrayed in the album artwork and videos. According to the artist, the designer Jesse Kanda asked if I had a girl's name when I was a kid, I told him that I have this image in my head when I listen to a song of mine that I really love or.

The experimentation with weird noises and textures is pretty interesting. However, this project lacks in energy. Most of it feels so lifeless that its almost like Im listening to an endless video game soundtrack. By the end of it, I was getting pretty bored and annoyed to be honest.

Its worth pointing out that all images of this "unnumbered" issue only shows the back of the poly bag. The numbering was placed on the front of the black bag which is not pictured&only a numbered version of this set was reportedly released so buyer beware of these $200+ listings
honestly, I think the numbered one is the one that went into retail and this is a friends and family type of release. so, they're basically the same.(I bought one directly from Mute staff today)
