    The dusky flute and steadfast bass take care to set us back down on our feet as a bubbly synth bays like a hungry hound in the distance and twilight fades peacefully into night.

    This record's controls are set for the heart of the drone, and the crew knows precisely where they're going. [No. 100, p.53]

    On The Dusted Sessions they both deconstruct and reinforce the tenets of Americana and make something transcendent in the process.

    The Dusted Sessions leaves you unsure of what you’ve just heard, like seeing a natural wonder for the very first time and feeling like a speck in the vastness of it all.

    A strange end possibly, but The Dusted Sessions seeks to encapsulate the essence of the vast landscapes the band experienced and does so quite incredibly.

    The Dusted Sessions is a careful and wonderfully executed trip through two sides of discovery, through the sunburst of awe and the shadow it leaves behind.
