A few years ago, Goodnight Myopia landed on my lap. It was a spacey and overtly catchy one man army effort. It also felt like staggering back home after a particularly bad day: emotions are raw, the sun has gone back to its den far too fast and you are seeing red, almost blinded by the dark ocher lampposts guiding you home.

A little while ago, a band from Champaign got in touch with us, contemplating the idea of streaming their new album in our dinky little website. That happened, then we fell head over heels over the album. Now, to get a trifecta, we got in touch with Isaac Arms from Withershins for an email interview.
