Andrew Jervis Finally getting around to grabbing one of my fave releases from 2013. Looking fwd to what's in the pipeline from Bells Atlas over the next 12 months. Favorite track: Incessant Noise. thumbnail Stunning subtle organic afro soul from an Oakland favorite. Their chemistry and excellent song writing make them seem like a group that has been together a lot longer than 2-3 years. - Jon Oliver, The Main Ingredient Favorite track: Incessant Noise.

Ben Adams I think I have stumbled upon something perfect here. Originally heard "Loving You Down" on 22Tracks which is an indicator of fine music. Beautiful vocals over complex, and unique, percussion. Groovy. Favorite track: Capable People.
