Album Notes
Excerpts from a review by Steve Taylor of Hollowear

"Technology continues to offer new strategies for organizing sound into music and this California based trio** combine acoustically generated gestures from a wide array of instruments with, electronic sound effects, samples, loops and computer program processing to create moving layered collages of urbane abstractness. A Dependable Skeleton take their inspiration in part from the mix 'n match "found sound" movement that evolved rapidly during the 1990s. However, they have plied both a formally developed skill for composition and real musicianship that enable the precious commodity called delicacy to appear, a characteristic all but unknown to the idiom. ADS are as concerned with underneath and overtop as they are with backwards and forwards in time"

** Note we are actually a duo.

".....throbbing zizz guitar and ethnic percussion breaks that recast psychedelia in a new light, on tracks like Treading (heavy)"

".....Poldtanski Kitten (Texas) sounds like a piece by Gyorgi Ligeti's personal triphop ensemble."

"..... suggests channeled entities from across the globe and time, that or their Bay area recording studio was accidentally built atop ancient sacred burial grounds."

Strange and Original
This CD is very original. There is something for every fan of new sounds and directions in music. Some tracks sound as if they were recorded on the fly while rehearsing (La Jete, Sourire) and others are like meticulously mapped out sonic candy (Alan Smells The Milk). Highly recommended - Mr. Man.
