"It’s a good thing that Elliott Snyder decided his high school recording moniker was worthy enough to revisit. About a year ago, he brought in a live band to re-record some long-stewing ideas, creating in the process a stunning mash-up of Tame Impala’s psychedelic prog-rock and the shoegazey neurosis that Deerhunter has nailed down."
-Jon Schober, the Current

Track Name: Exploring Time Split
I walked between
What can't be seen
My breath was lost
Inside your dream

Passing by the twitching leaves
Our voices saw what our eyes screamed
Exploring time split by belief
Unable to find my relief
