2013 album from the Chicago-based Experimental Alt-Rock band. Stitches touches on all permutable definitions of the word, its episodes of discomfort and healing rendered with exquisite beauty and craftsmanship. Archetypes and mythological figures rub shoulders with bruised civilians throughout this odyssey. Intimate timbres garage sale drum machines, slack guitar strings, hushed vocals offset the album's cinematic inclinations.

The listener moves through a landscape of Old Testament blood and guts, spaghetti Western deserts and Southwestern horizons, zeroing in on emotions and images that cannot be glanced over.


8th release from Chicago band—slide guitars meet synthesizers & horns in a Southwestern cocktail of desert beauty that unabashedly combines an Americana ethos with electronic sound- scaping and an epic, expansive sort of indie rock poignancy. Shades of Calexico, Giant Sand.
