Current members // Denny Bowen, guitar; Nick Podgurski, drummer; Brad Smith, bass; Sam Garrett, guitar
Founded in // 2004
Style // progressive rock
Influenced by // ZS, Sleeping People, Genesis, Captain Beefheart
Notable // Since the band's songwriting process is collaborative, writing new music tends to take awhile, Podgurski said. The tracks on the full-length album Mortar focus more on the instruments than the vocals.
Quotable // "We wrote three songs in a month once, and that was unheard of," Podgurski said. "Normally, we'll spend a couple practices just getting one part of a song."
