Peter Jones A mesmeric performance. Delicate and delightful. Forceful and demanding. Complex and light.

Stunning work. Favorite track: the simple story.

A nice little in-between release, featuring two strong tracks from the upcoming sophomore album Favorite track: to human misery (chamber version).

Julien Vachon I discovered this band when Kscope reblogged their music video for the song 'A Simple Story' on which Gavin Harrison performs the drums. I got hooked right away. Extremely original songwriting: an interesting progressive-rock vibe added to a chamber music approach makes this band a must for any music-lovers. Favorite track: touching (london mixing).

This is just a small treat while we all are waiting for our second LP. This will take a while for us to finish and release it (especially if we sign for a label) but we won't wait in silence.
