    ----------

    While EP-1: Echoes & Waves touched on the titanic topics of abandonment, alcoholism, the death of a parent, coping with an adoption, and coming to terms with the past, EP-2: Shadows & Sand is the second half of what was always intended to be a full length album.

    With the two most requested tracks from EP-1 (edited as well as remastered) added to create a more complete listening experience, Shadows & Sand is about identifying grief, waking up on the proverbial shore, and trying to move to a place of peace, hope and faith.

about

"Aldridge-Astor’s emotive alto croons, whispers, and wails as liquid strings and effects paint a dark underwater landscape. An impressive debut effort, executed to chilling effect."

-KT LINDEMANN, 90.3 FM- The Current
blog.thecurrent.org/2014/02/pinata-pony-glean-and-a-grrrl-prty-sneak-listen-this-weeks-minnesota-record-releases/

"It’s goth. It’s rock. It’s pop. It’s, weirdly, a little bit soul music. It’s prog, ferchrissake. It’s future. It’s ambient. It takes a bunch of dark, eerie, interesting genres and stirs them together in a pot with loud, intricate guitars (courtesy The Afghan Whigs’ Rick McCollum) at the fore."

about

glean Minneapolis, Minnesota

A water-damaged violin weeps as a ghostly orchestra tunes to the key of E. A piano- lost on the bottom of the Atlantic for a century- strikes a shimmering, melancholy note. Above the surface, seagulls scream as boat engines drone steadily. These are the sounds that haunt EP-1 from glean. ... more
