This Raleigh, NC five-piece (featuring members of Cherry Valence) seems more influenced by the synth-influenced alt rock of the early '80's than the lumbering menace of Sabbath and the like. Elsewhere you get a keen sense of Brit-pop, much like Olivia Tremor Control did back on Dust on Cubist Castle, but without the overwhelming indebtedness to the Beatles. And for those who require something with more than a little get up and go, try “The Reeds” on for size. Quirky? Poppy? You betcha. But that's not always a bad thing.

The record is laden with monstrous riffs, classic rock sensibility and progressive psychedelic flavor.
