In Their Words: "I've always loved the feeling of those early records by artists like Ray Charles or Bill Monroe or Bob Marley when they're just figuring out their vision — combining their favorite sounds to create a whole new genre. You can hear them stumbling and fumbling around with old ideas and influences, but something beautiful and new is happening. That's how it felt making this record. I doubt we'll start a trend — let alone a genre — but I think what we've made is truly original and rootsy to the bone." –Lech Wierzynski
