"Psych-flavored, ethereal shoegaze pop; kissed lightly with the flavor of dusty forsaken towns; these numbers come close to fulfilling the promise of the highly-respected brain-trust that is Candi and The Strangers [Kodachrome]. With ties to local favorites The Black Angels, Voxtrot, and The Octopus Project; the Constants + Erik Wofford have generated this entity's third release with machinistic precision; successfully nailing the "Spaghetti Western Space Dream" they aimed for; and using some rather esoteric instrumentation (theremin, vibraphone, omnichord) and talent (the Tosca String Quartet) in the dealio.
Though this one started off as a score (for the word-ily titled "Man On A Mission: Richard Garriott's Road to the Stars"), it deserves it's own screen. And headline."
