7. Ring Road (early version, ft. Matt Oberst) [Bonus Track]
"Sonic vistas dripping silver honey with an Air of innocence provide the listener affordable space-time shortcuts through the ages. Pleasing, simple yet sophisticated riffs and chords dance in improbable harmonies against an arcadian canvas. A celebration of and homage to ethereal prog-psych-garage traditions lift the initiate to safe, happy landings on soft, lucid clouds of desolation. Lucha libre between Plato and Democritus ultimately results in laughing camaraderie and a sweet trip to the Mad Hatter's tea party! Light, reason and dreams intertwine to challenge confusion, ignorance and darkness. Awake, receive and recede into Ellipsis. Please."
