Our very first album, released in 2007, now without my (and Mike Tjader's) vocals. I can say alot about this album. It bears all the magnificence, flaws, and naivety that come with a band's debut. Primarily though, listening to these instrumentals makes me marvel once again at Zach Reilly's songwriting.
Props to everywhere we recorded (and re-recorded) especially Drexel's various studios, where I certainly was not supposed to be spending hours editing audio alone.
All the musicians who contributed to this track are beasts and you'll find them in the credits. I got a crash course in managing a 10 person band real quick.
Thanks for listening. We'll keep at it.

Incredible. The combination of classically composed beats, creatively scripted lyrics, entrancing vocals, and pure layering of sounds makes this one of the truest hip-hop albums we've heard since the early 2000's. EuphoricFusion
