pgroove all this everythingAll This Everything starts the sound of the album, a beautiful little ditty called Life. The theme continues on, as All This Everything, Pt. 1 begins, you can hear how much work put into this album to create a beautiful piece of . So many are really concerned getting a perfect show put together, and I think that all bands need to start with solid foundations. Part of that solid foundation should be a strong album or two; songs need to be crafted skillfully to be able to present them in an improvisational setting. They’re heading to the end of an extremely strong year for them, having finished off their Speed of Surround Tour and announcing their New Year’s Eve plans to play the in Athens, GA and then hopping onto the next Jam Cruise 3 (Sold out) five days later. Strong album + strong in support = Super-heady new jamband.

As All This Everything, Pt. 1 starts off quiet and peaceful, All This Everything, Pt. 2 comes in strong and very jammy. I love the way all the instruments sound on this album. Robert Hannon () clearly does phenomenal work, and I love the sound that creates with his help.

There’s some seriously tasty arrangements on this album that would lend themselves unbelievably sweet when performed . 53 More Things to do in Zero , Crockett and Tubbs, and Occam’s Blazer stand out as really strong songs that have seriously openings and great use of space. I’ll say it again; any jamband needs to have a solid song foundation, or they’ll become very boring very fast. Andromeda, Left to Drifting, and And Everything are just excellent songs.

This would be the next band for me that could get me to drive hours to camp in horrible weather just to see what they do next. I’m downloading like crazy from the Archive just to get my hands on this . I want to Occam’s Blazer. So tasty!
