Vancouver Sun review (by Stuart Derdeyn)
"The second full length release from Rob Malowany’s wonderful atmospheric avant-country collective is a tour de force for pedal steel guitarist Paul Rigby. His high lonesome twangs and textures to Sashay Shimmer are perfect compliments to Malowany’s plaintive vocals and the rest of the group’s rolling gait rhythms.

If the debut Singularity was a winner, this is a big step up as the mix (by Malowany who also produced) showcases the material better as a whole and there is some achingly beautiful confessional writing. The showpiece is the honesty in Depression Sets In, where a slow jam just sinks lower and lower to reflect the “bringing me down” lyric chanted like a mantra. Bummer, yes. But in the best possible way.

Fans of groups such as Giant Sand or any twang-tinged jam band should certainly check this out live. Much of the soundscape is improvised and that means it never happens the same way twice."
