I've had really mixed feelings about splits in the past - doing our unusually named Crash Symbols release with School Knights and Pacific Pride was pretty gratifying, but it takes pairings like Jordan Knecht and Lake Mary to really underscore the potential value of these novel releases. Knecht's ironically named "Moderation" (it's fourteen minutes long) and it's flipside "Perseverance" gradually unfold like a eulogy in folk and as the last vocal tone dies, Lake Mary's three part ambient song cycle rises up to fill the void, reminding me at least that the human voice is still new to the world's sonic milieu.
