"This is a group that looks for freedom at every turn, every window, and every pace... The sounds, tones, textures, and timbral relationships encountered here are unique to this band; they have not been touched on before, and they will not be encountered again. These colors, so many shades of the dark, are beautiful to hear, to feel, and internalize." --Thom Jurek, AMG
