Last Layer of Analysis
About the Artist: It doesn't make sense, and most of it's not true... Ben Marcus sustains himself without food or water, living solely on music. Often he goes months without breathing or taking in sunshine. About the Album: The attention to detail and ornamentation of orchestral symphonic music mixed with rock sensabilities and accessibility, electronic programing, and acoustic instruments all come together in an intense, yet gentle album that will catalyze a stronger connection with the eternal for the listener. Let go of your anchors and your wings if you have to. Reviews: FatCat Records: ''SR's tracks here are nicely controlled, restrained takes on a kind of melancholic indie. Picked acoustic guitars, bass, strings, drums, accordian and a voice weave around organically, occassionally spilling over as the intensity is ratcheted up. Cool stuff.' Arizona New Times: '...fuses affable sonic rhythms with melodic layers that are textured with keen laptop programming and supple keyboard melodies.'
