"...a scene-defining, gorgeous collection of mainly folk-rock songs about the lonely walk we all seem to be on (together, alone) these days; but it is creative redemption, not plague dreams. Forget what you think you know about Seattle, and dive head-first into this Puget Sound of pure musical pleasure."
- Chris Estey, Seattle music writer and publicist
"A calm comp for worried times from this Seattle imprint, surveying the Emerald City scene for 11 quiet-spun, silken songs. The (semi) familiar names supply fine, spiritual performances... you’ll fall into their hammock of fetching folk and canny canyon pop"
- Jack Rabid, The Big Takeover
A year ago, when I began asking musicians for the songs you’re about to listen to on this record, no one could have foreseen the global pandemic and righteous uprising for racial equity and justice awaiting us just around the corner. Whether or not it was the intention of these artists, their songs offered here speak directly to the times we’re living in, and all that we're feeling... the isolation, fear, grief, anger, love, hope, empowerment, and not least our need for release; for some tears, for a good laugh, for a good song. You can hear deep catharsis in these words and in these performances. I hope you’re able to find and lose yourself in these songs as much as I have.
