A heartfelt review by Sound Colour Vibration.

The always wonderful music/art/film site Sound Colour Vibration has run a very touching review of Blue Hour.  Many thanks to Erik Otis for digging deep and reminding us why we do what we do…

Much LOVE,

Rolling Stone (.com) features “Luminous Friend” >>>

Dear Friends,

It feels strange to say that we are featured on Rolling Stone, but.. it’s true!  Our song “Luminous Friend” is a featured track which you can download for FREE.  They also asked us to give a little backstory to the song, which gave the feature some extra dimension we were happy to share.  Hope you enjoy the words and music.  This ones for you Jeff!  We love you and miss you!

Our guide to San Francisco…… CITY / REFUGE

We were recently asked by the folks at the Indy Rock Reviews website to create a guide to our fair city from any perspective of our choosing.  We decided that what immediately stands out was not simply the urban local, but also the varied and rich surroundings that can be found within earshot.  Hope you enjoy the read… especially those of you unfamiliar with this lovely place we call home!  Come and visit!
