descriptions, reviews, &c.

"The duo of Chris Dadge and Rachael Wadham have been playing since the latter half of 2006. In November of that year, Dadge traveled to Vancouver and they recorded the album in a single Monday afternoon at 1067 on Granville St.

Dadge and Wadham play percussion and piano, respectively, but it's all the extra things that make this duo unique. Their approach to their own instruments are formidable, and worthy in their own right, but the liberal sprinklings of other sounds such as violin, found objects, junk, and small percussion bits creat a sparkling, more kaleidoscopic sound.

Dadge and Wadham toured in support of Peter Evans in August 2007."-Bug Incision
