Listener

***Having just finished touring the Northwest, they are now
putting the finishing touches on their ninth album,
Time is a Machine, which is scheduled
for release this year.***

than a standard musical structure."

"The substance is there and the poetry is remarkable in the way it flows effortlessly,
but for the listener it may take several efforts to fully
digest...and therein lies its beauty."
- Nevin, Sputnik Music
