Re: Derek Roddy here!
I'm sorry I missed out on this until now, this is some really incredible music you've put together! The shuffle in Greater Equanimity took me off guard but in the best way possible. the transitions in Initiation Rituals really ruled, the groovy feel that you pushed through parts of that song put a smile on my face. Intertwine ripped my brain apart and put it back together upside down. Signs of identity had a very different feel, cadence almost, very pushy and powerful. I don't have proper words to describe most of these songs. The Polymath sounds the most polished to me. I really dug that track, probably my favorite of the bunch, that or intertwine.
This is a very different type of sound you guys have assembled and I'm happy to say it's great.
Keep up the good work,
