Album Review

Two pros of the indie rock session musician circuit who have collaborated with the likes of Bon Iver and Farcade Ire decide to collaborate with each other and birth a wild, muscular, neo-classical, experimental record from their creative wombs. NO OVERDUBS. That’s right. They’re playing all of this live. Haunting, gorgeous sounds.

Favorites: 1, 6, 4, 3, 5. FCC None.

1.(7:37) **** Spooky ambience then…beautiful pulsating violin/sax
2.(3:24) Morose midtempo mood piece. Touching
3.(6:02) *** Rapid violin and (at first) more subdued sax. Stetson gets his full skronk on 3/4 of the way in. Returns to violin land
4.(2:57) *** Ancient scuffed folk music…achingly pretty
5.(6:34) *** Shit gets intense. Your favorite indie collaborators spew forth some gooey, thudding, dark ambient style tunes right here. Only for those willing to climb down into the chasm below
6.(6:31) **** Head nodding, entrancing. Stetson’s muscular playing of his pad cups (had to look up the term) are horses galloping.
7.(8:13) Super minimal (like near silent) until about 1:00. Slower…saxophone comes in to add startling texture. Very violin led beautiful somber composition
8.(1:38) Running water…plunges into the waterfall with ~30 seconds to go. Could be a cool moody set closer
