"Humble Digs has captured the electricity and mystery of love, of loving someone who seems to shadow you, who you have no choice but to look up to." - Digital Wheat Paste
This may seem a bit heavy for a band that gained their name thrashing about in Pioneer Valley basements to songs called "40 Oz Malted Breakfast" and "50,000 MPH", but with "A Portrait of Grace", songwriter Jake Slater flexes his narrative chops with deftly painted vignettes of emotional upheaval, toxic friendships, and post-adolescent self-deprecation. His and George Condon's guitars bounce and twirl around each other like a pair of dueling hawks, while drummer Henry Condon and bassist Riley Feeney carve twisting canyons with jazz-inflected grooves. The album explores peaks and valleys both emotionally and musically, recalling influences as far flung as Neil Young, Gustav Holst, Pink Floyd and Snarky Puppy.
Carefully mixed by Andrew Oedel at Ghost Hit Recording in Holyoke (from recordings made in a 150-year-old Amherst farmhouse) and mastered at Sunroom Audio in Cornwall, NY, this is a sonic leap for a project known for its carefully arranged material and edge-of-your-seat-but-always-in-control performances.
