ZenithLike Bert & Ernie and Felix & Oscar, the bond of friendship can be peculiar. It is indisputable, though, that there exists a palpable, visceral energy that attracts strangers to form a perfect union. And, in those flawless entities we find a truer sense of being, a holy, deeper meaning that art only strives to approximate.
Eastern Midwestern shoots for the moon, and only most-artfully turns back on itself. Whether it's the genteel storytelling of the Middle West, or the affected attitude of the jagged Eastern seaboard, this unique foursome of de-facto New Yorkers aims to please even the most discerning ear.
They dare you not to hum back a melody, to not swing your arms in grand air guitar gestures, or flail faux-fills down dribbling air-toms. You'll have no control as your inner-bassist contorts the corners of your mouth into Bass Face, your under bite leading your head in an approving Rock Nod.
Enjoy your ride to Zenith and back! It is the capital of your favorite fictional state: Winnemac, so equally eastern and so equally midwestern.1. Why Would They Want Us

Ceres & Calypso In The Deep Time (Out Of Stock)On their fourth full-length album - third for Twosyllable - Ceres & Calypso In The Deep Time, Fort Collins creative collective Candy Claws delve deep into new territory. The subject for the concept of this album goes beyond place and time and takes the listener on a Journey Through the Mesozoic Era. The album is divided into three parts highlighting major periods of the extinct reptiles' history, Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous. Experience it in one sitting and the story will unfold before you like a theatrical play, grandiose at times and playful at others.
The songs span wildly diverse genres from sprawling cinematic overtures to Spaghetti Western sing-a-longs, tumultuous Tangos to classic Canterbury Scene psychedelia which somehow all feel so singularly Candy Claws. Certainly in part due to what we've come to expect... Beneath the sometimes-hazy shoegazed pastiche is a foundation of clever, catchy and expert songwriting.
As usual, relying heavily on collaboration, co-bandleaders Ryan Hover, Kay Bertholf--and relative newcomer--Karen McCormick relied on the poems of Chicagoan Jen Morea for each of the song's lyrics. The titles of each track start with the poem title and are followed by the title of the piece of music scored to it. In addition, New York City composer Bryan Senti provided an orchestral accompaniment for every other song on the record comprised entirely of samples from Philip Glass' sample library.
Whether you love the incredible attention to detail of Candy Claws' inventive conceptual art, or you just love the music, Ceres & The Calypso In The Deep Time is an impressive accomplishment to be relished.1. Into The Deep Time (One Sun)
