“On this record, we hoped to capture the joy of friends playing together in a relaxed way.  We used a lot of first and second takes and tried to preserve a sense of immediacy and discovery that comes from putting things down before you really have a chance to think too hard…” (Guitarist/Vocalist Josh Wise)

I got an advance copy in the mail and couldn’t stop listening to it. The first track, Abandon is a signpost of a great listening experience ahead and can be downloaded here. Overall the lush soundscape never floats too far away -as dream inducing records often do, but stays on the proper side of uplifting.
