As M Lane’s voice seeks another sphere amid wrangling guitars, Joey M Bishop constructs a landscape for it to dwell in, here on earth, up there in the ether. From the cracks issue melodies which want to break free, songs which need to be surrounded. A world is born under the careful supervision of Patience and Industry, a world that would as soon dash you on the rocks as it would give you repose. Paying no mind to calm coastlines, A Straw Assembly sets its sights on open water.
