'An album to get excited about.' -Buying 50, April 2004 Issue 'Coan creates a deep vibe that runs through this unique record, from beginning to end. All with superb lyrics. Find it and get it.'

To settle into your couch and get lost in it's intimacy, in it's layers, in the rasp of Coan's voice. Coan writes psalms. Meditations on love and invisibility and the longing for the freedom to jump into the stream and drift. These are woven together in sounds of classical guitar and the beat of electronic waves.

This carefully crafted album, Coan's 3rd and most progressive, was written and recorded in New York and San Francisco. You will find these cities in the music. Red electric Village nights, the Pacific Ocean and the Bay blanketed in a shivering fog. A girl passing a joint in Central Park. A poet sweating in Chinatown. A lustful oud player lost in the Mission. Peter Coan's songs, penned on guitar and piano, are layered through an electronic soundscape, creating a fusion of the past and the present. The resulting album is an intimate listening experience. All of the colours are there. Sit back. Listen. The black road screaming 'neath your wheels of your midnight drive. The unanswered telephone call to the hotel room. Time running out on you as the candles melt down on the table. The night moving beautifully in rough organic sounds. The shadows of John Lennon's tomb. Between the ruins of dark and light, there in the twilight...
