"Some of the most gorgeously haunting tune-smithing we have heard for many a long, lonely night."

Mad Mackerel Premieres "Philosophy", the second single off of Blue Spells...
"In just over 100 seconds of perfectly judged vocal harmonies and gently subdued instrumentation, the San Francisco duo have managed to create a sweetly sombre classic of pensive restraint and yearning melancholy that leaves palpable echoes hanging in the air long after the song has finished." - Mad Mackerel

The first single, "Strange", off of Blue Spells dropped today, premiered by The Vinyl District. They asked us to wax profound about our love of vinyl . Read our honest, but absurd-sounding attempt, here.
"A raw contralto will get you far in the indie world, particularly if you specialize in songs about heartbreak, death, and the fallout after a bad relationship. Whoever did him wrong paved the way for some forceful emo-folk,
buoyed by heavy chords and portentous lyrics."
