     The debut full-length studio album from Mike Haggith And The Din, Perpetual Musings was recorded live-in-studio at PaperClip Productions on 31 May 2013. This record, similarly to the group's sophomore effort Chaotic Symphony, was tracked in the presence of a small studio audience, and almost entirely improvised.

     Anchored heavily by the fourth and final track, a staggering 27-minute rendition of Haggith's original song Limb Coast from his 2012 studio album Neighborhood Watch, the record meanders and weaves through improvised instrumental and vocal sections alike, building on extremely basic song foundations in a psychedelic frenzy which plays out in equal parts structured and chaotic. Initially envisioned to span a minimum of 6 to 7 tracks, the record hit its target runtime after the recording of Limb Coast, and as such the final product spanned just four.

    The Plumber, split into two separate sections for largely organizational purposes, was the group's warm-up jam on the day of recording, and wasn't necessarily slated for inclusion on the final product. However, the band elected to record the warm-up jam, and after hearing the tape playback, opted to include the track on the record.

     Throughout the record's runtime, members of the studio audience can occasionally be heard, and a proper applause comes at the conclusion of Limb Coast, closing the record on a positive note. While CD pressings were manufactured and sold, they have since sold out, and this record is currently not available in physical print, and continues to be available for streamed listening only.
