OVERTURE. As the forest settles down for winter, newly arrived songs echo louder and louder still, spared the midsummer chaos.
ARIA. A new neighbour, with a fresh face, tender from travel, lands with patient jazz steps, swaying in time with gentle melodic movements. We spy a hero in KRATOS HIMSELF, here to make his hybrid acoustic orchestrations at home in our halls, as we move to make peace.
CHORUS. A traveler with friends in the wind and in the waves, his formal testament comes by itself, solemn in its purity. Yet the initial correspondence comes upon the dark, jazz-inflected shoulders of SAM A LA BAMALOT and MINIMAL ORCHESTRA, both of whom tell different tales of the same road.
CODA. Carved into a limited number of yellow vinyl, LOON GARDEN is merely the first, concluding prophetically with a taste of its successor, due out mid-2016.
