Kinship was written by Jeff Wright for the birth of his son Owen, and can be compared to other acts as Godspeed! You Black Emperor, Mogwai, and The Appleseed Cast. “New life is a beautiful thing, something that one is eager to share with the world … Love overflows on this release, especially in the dialogue of ‘First Look’, but it doesn’t overwhelm … ‘The Family Tree’ possesses a similar sense of ebullience. The peaceful finale, ‘Rest’, implies something that new parents don’t encounter often; but in this case, if Jeffrey can get it, his rest will have been well-deserved.”

Bridge Carols is the meeting of two artists with unique timeless approaches to music. Neo-Americana folk singer Laura Gibson is gifted with a soft and singular voice (not unlike the voices of Josephine Foster and Joanna Newsom) and writes songs that could date back a century or foretell a future rural life. Electronician Ethan Rose is vested in antiquated instruments and technologies – a sonic recycler who, out of the old, has been creating a new form of ambient music.
