SSO’s Debut Album gets reviewed on WERS

August 26th, 2011 by admin

” Their track “Into The Wood Chipper” is a perfect example of this. This song draws the listener in the second it begins playing. The lilts in the melody are accented in a distinctly Eastern European way teleporting the listener to the land from whence it came. Well, it actually came from Somerville so not there, but to the land from whence it wishes one to believe it came. This song has a fantastic build up and the listeners excitement builds along with it until there is nothing else to do but to get up and perform a jig. ”
