Listening to this album as it is being broadcast this morning really takes me back to the beginnings of our program. This album came out in 2000, and our radio show was only about a year old at that time. As I was already a fan of this band from their first release, a promo copy of this CD made it's way into the KRTU studion, and I played it and played it, and then played it some more. It was certainly one of my favorite albums of that year, and now songs are played from it almost nightly on KRTU airwaves. Another interesting memory of this album was every now and then, I would work as a sound mixer for local theater productions. This is always an album that I would grab to supply the best intermission music. Not offensive to the older crowd, slightly jazzy, slight soulful, and very hip to those in the know. I'm super glad that I've seen this group twice in concer, and if you haven't, you really should. This their second release, is an amazing album. It's really a classic of the downtempo genre.
