We are proud to announce today's official release of Michael Beach's "Mountains + Valleys" on limited edition cassette (100) and download. Early reviews are rolling in...

Mountains + Valleys (through Spectacular Commodity and Twin Lakes) is a ballsy and accomplished collection of rustic rust, and it sounds amazing." -- Sonic Masala

Bandcamp Hunter described it as "the sort of music that reminds me that’s it’s still very possible to make vital rock and roll," comparing it to Eddy Current Suppression Ring's best work. 

The Needle Drop gave it high praise as well, drawn in by "its strong, emotional edge" and "poetic lyrics."
