Editors’ Notes

What started as a far more experimental ensemble has modified itself into a smart and economical group where a mix of acoustic guitars, sweet harmonies, and electronic manipulations create carefully constructed songs with no wasted effects. Songs such as "Once" and "By This" could survive with only acoustic guitar and harmonies, yet the extra synth effects add color and soothing bottom-end sounds for consistency's sake. Frontman Mike Lindsay relocated to Iceland and worked on an album with local musicians there before reuniting with his old band members. Despite their years apart, the sound is actually tighter here. The pulsing mystery of "The Village" is guided by a rhythm section that's locked and loaded. The band claims this is its "sci-fi folk-rock" album, but it's less prog and more pop. "Bloodlines" takes The Fairport Convention's sound and adds modern technology. "Follow Follow" could be Simon & Garfunkel fully modernized, with the band doing to itself what producer Tom Wilson once did to the folk duo.
