Comments:

I don't think I'm the one to review this; sounds almost like a totally different band. Other than a few moments, I find this music not very interesting. Percussion heavy; sort of a Gabrielle Roth knockoff. (Anachro1@pacbell.net)

Comments:

Beautiful electronica soundscapes (I prefer the term 'musical wallpaper'); perfect for relaxing after a day full of bullsh_t. Reflective, meditative music done well from the, excuse my Californian heart, chakra. The music is a soothing, dreamlike, web of sound. (Anachro1@pacbell.net)
