Staff review by
The drive from Phoenix to Tucson is a boring one. 100+ miles with one scenic peak around the halfway point. And lots of boring. Facing this drive back to my old stomping grounds, I was lucky enough to be sent a pre-release copy of Sleestak's latest, AEON.

Facing 100+ miles and 80 or so minutes, there was but one thing to do in my rental car. Crank the stereo (and the A/C) and set the controls for the missing pylon.

Well shit. They haven't posted anything on facebook. That studio is literally a half hour from my house. Great news!

"Keepers Of The Illusion" perfectly highlighted the gems of this album. It will be a lot tossing on my playlist.

Also, if not STCFTHOTS - I think Omelas could have captured the best outro Sleestak recorded. Maybe that's just me.
