Double hybrid LP: One LP on black vinyl and one LP on clear fuchsia vinyl and picture disc artwork on the back side (first time!).  "Of all the records I got from 2000 to 2010, a coupla by Second Family are among my fav... they remind me a bit the good old Sunburned Hand of the Man (or at least that tradition) but of course, with their own unique sound. Anyway, I wrote them... Tony kindly sent me stack of stuff... I selected & compiled a few things and they kindly agreed without exception. I also invited the Family to the first Sagittarius A-Star night at ISSUE, NYC back in 2011: when I met them I was engulfed by their very aromatic, smokey aura... their set was very late (3rd) but even so, before coming to the stage they put on a kind of background tape/music and disappeared.... weird sounds filled the air and immediately I was in some other place.... to me they got that magic touch. those particular vibes also saturate these three long sides; a very peaceful music, ideal for late night shows or esoteric rituals..."
