  • The nine tracks were recorded by each member in isolation, which is pretty damn impressive

  • The album was produced by J. Robbins (Clutch, The Sword, Jawbox)

Standout Track(s):

At Most (5:35)

This song is so damn fluid with mellow stoner rock and heavy grunge like rock. Plus the soft percussion and bass work hits a soft spot on our ears, it sounds tremendous.


Machina (5:15)

The vocals has us coming back for more. Great duel singing by Scott and Brandon. The change in direction at the 2:49 mark is so comforting. Again, we love the percussion here.


Near Enemy (3:51)

Swift percussion steals the show on this track. It just rocks.

Brew Pairing

Grab some Neon Fantasy IPA by Icarus Brewing in Lakewood, NJ. This 8.1% ale is brewed with lemongrass and Citra is a bit sweet and bitter with a ton of flavors. A nice pairing with Shun.
