The Baltimore Sun

Hometown -- Baltimore

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."
