This album really gets under your skin. Jumping right in, the drums are one of my favorite aspects of NLTW. They are spare and subtle, but quite powerful as they play with the dynamics of volume and expression with the same sly, quietly twisted intent as the rest of the instrumental and vocal elements. Te overall 'flavors' of feeling I commonly take away are yearning, dreaming, thoughts of distant old cities, flying though dimensions and colorful space nebulae, and walking on desert island shores in the fog.

Even in a noisy room, its uncanny melodies make you curious to lean in and hear more. The songs of Nine Lives To Wonder weave a quirky, darkly atmospheric universe that is gorgeous and - for me - a big creative influence.
