In the distance the land kisses the sky. If you squint just right you can see Minus Story in flux there, somewhere between earthbound and ethereal, making sunspots on the horizon with their noisy and melodic headphone pop. They speak their own codified musical language as only childhood friends can share. Tirelessly artistic yet unpretentious, they are unafraid of abject noise, folk, soul, or straight-up pop rock. "My Ion Truss" is an epic and anthemic cross between Pearl Jam, Queen, Brian Eno, and Roxy Music.
