Released on New Year’s Day 2017, the band’s 6th album continues the journey into longform sonic narrative, including four instrumentals among its twelve new compositions. Again incorporating both original spoken word underscored by ambient guitars and Ms. Serafin’s archived vocals in new works. A dreampop template that travels the distance from the gentle echoey strains of the opener, “Thirteen”, to the dark bowed guitars of “Listen”, the explosion of exuberant faith on “Ever and Ever Forever, the pop-tinged whimsy of “Tail O’er Fin” and the breathtakingly epic closer, “To The Other Half of the Sky”. Considered by some as the band’s breakthrough album, finding wide airplay on non- commercial radio, reaching the #18 spot on California’s KDVS and gaining praise from France’s Indiemusic who called it “magical and majestic – an ultimate tour-de-force.”
