Our sojourn into Avant-Americana continues with another strong entry from the Denver hive that gave us SLIM CESSNA'S AUTO CLUB, MUNLY, LILIUM, DEVOTCHKA, and of course 16 HORSEPOWER. This time, the atmosphere is from the far evening reaches of the Argentine Pampas, with nods to all the above artists plus a liberal dose of ENNIO MORRICONE. Some folks here you know steel and keys come from the AUTO CLUB's John Rumly, while Daniel Jon Grandbois again mans the bass. Main guitarist and keys is master producer Bob Ferbrache (SIXTEEN HP, SLIM C., MUNLY, LADONNAS, FLUID), who also handles the music end of BLOOD AXIS. Lead chanteuse Kal Cahoone turned many a head and ears with her vocal entries on the last LILIUM album on Smooch. As usual, Mr. Ferbrache has gone several extra miles in his Absinthe Studio to color each song so atmosphere is all. Dream, baby, dream.

Robert Ferbrache (Sixteen Horsepower, Slim Cesna's Auto Club, Blood Axis, et cetera) acts as guitarist, producer and recording engineer on this release, and in so doing, gives this recording the sort of full-rage compositional complexity and perfectionism to be expected from a band featuring such a renowned studio engineer in its lineup.
Fans of Neko Case, Mazzy Star, Elysian Feilds, Calexico, Sixteen Horsepower, Devotchka (and even Pink Martini) will all find something to enjoy here.
