“SYU is a seriously good album. Be proud as heck of this album. I've been listening to it in heavy rotation since I downloaded it. So many different styles and approaches that come together beautifully. I love the storyteller bits like Rewind, and the reflective stuff like World Without. I think No Room is my fave track. But it's seriously all good. Congrats.”
And this was from a movie review Mark did around this time from his old site Atomic Anxiety.
Instead, most of the time that I thought I’d spend listening to ABOUT TIME, I’ve actually spent listening to Soon You’ll Understand, an album released this past week by pal, Kelen Conley. (Download it here.) I love it when my friends are creative, and I doubly love it when they create something I’d like even if I didn’t know them. Many of the tracks on the album are a better fit for my head than anything else spinning around these days. SYU is contemplative, but it’s also fun and combative, full of as much ego as self-awareness. While a film like ABOUT TIME can hit me in the center of all my emotional concerns (all the things I don’t have and all the experiences I’ve never had), Hyphen’s album connects better with the chaos in my head.
