In the autumn of 2013, Dan Crane met Amanda Walker at a show in Los Angeles and the two started talking about working on some music together. Crane suggested they start by recording a cover, and the first track they worked on was “Like a Fool” by Superchunk. Not long after that, they came up with the idea of doing an entire album of covers from the year that Superchunk’s album Foolish was released: 1994.
