Last Dawning of the New Age
Started as a one track experiment, the album slowly took on a life of it's own. The Bells was the first track recorded. It had many incarnations. This was to be the case with most of the tracks. The majority of the album was recorded in a small house studio in the swamps of South Carolina. This certainly effected the mood of the songs, if not the sound. As it developed, it became clear that there was a loose but insistent theme of spirituality colliding with real life, about the choices we make and the hope that things will work out in the end. At some point, it seemed almost necessary to present all of these songs as a whole movement. It is not easy to categorize the album as a whole. The songs range in mood, emotion and style and reflect the meaning and emotion of each track. Essentially, it's a Rock album filtered through 20 years of alternative, electronica, brit pop and avant guard music debris. The songs are played as the band would play them, without drum quantizing or pitch correction. This gives the tracks a classic rock feel. However, the music is certainly versed in many styles. The songs range from post rock to dance pop; alt country to acid rock and everything in-between. The band melds all of this with micro-sound experiments and ambient soundscapes to create a new world that seems so familiar and that you are compelled to explore. There is a strangely wide appeal to the album. There seems to be something for everyone on this album. That, we didn't expect. We hope that you will enjoy it and we hope you can take something from it.
