This ep is comprised mostly of material that wouldn’t, couldn’t and otherwise didn’t fit onto the previous Knitting By Twilight album, “An Evening Out of Town” for mostly thematic considerations. They’re presented here in all their guitar driven and metals clanging glory. And these would be Shiver, Mik’s Glacier and Twirling Guitars and Glad Tambourines. They’re accompanied by an alternate version of Blue Ink for Fountain Pens, which features the blue and brooding guitar of Mike Marando, and is altogether different from the more docile mix included on the debut Knitting By Twilight album of the same name. Also included here is a minimalist version of She’s Not Here She’s Far Ahead, from the Knitting By Twilight ep “Someone to Break the Silence.” In the spirit of its reductionist treatment, it’s been titled She’s Here. – John Orsi, Spring 2009.
Out on the Road for “An Evening Out of Town”
“ Not jazz, not pop yet superb with improvisatory embellishments and a secret sense of melodic wisdom befitting an astonishing catholicity of qualitative inspirations and influences.”
– Mitch Lemay, KFJC
“Most bands offer square peg into square hole genre comforts, but the out of time instrumentals KBT offers are like new attitudes all around.”
–Jack Rabid, The Big Takeover
“An Evening Out of Town is a mixture of different styles and genres, where you’re not sure where you’re headed, but you’re always pleased to reach each song’s destination. The core of Knitting By Twilight has always been multi-instrumentalist John Orsi, and he goes at it by creating mostly instrumental pieces that could be anything and everything from jazz to new age, light electronic music, folk, to sounds that show a possible classical influence.” “It’s simple in its complexity, and it’s complex in its simplicity.”
“On their latest effort, the band expound on their trademark, mesmerizing rhythms with curiously dark keyboard lines, jangling string passages and haunting sound bytes. They’ve truly created an original entity that’s both commercially viable and musically progressive.”
– Doug Sloan, Metronome
“Spaciously atmospheric, resonantly tonal, and sometimes jarringly percussive, this is the
type of impressionistic work that renews one’s faith in musicians that take chances.”
– John Collinge, Progression
