“stunningly fresh band that instantly take you down the garden path, and then deep into their musical wilderness.” – SceneNotHerd – IE
The moods and shaded nuances are marshalled superbly throughout, the playing is excellent but never showy. That makes this an unusual album — it is also a beguiling and thoroughly satisfying piece of work.
