After quickly selling out the first pressing of their debut concept album ( "Barroom Confessions"), this Portland, Oregon band headed back into the recording studio with a more focused and mature songwriting approach along with an eagerness to stretch their boundaries musically. they spent the better part of a year recording songs to an analog reel-to-reel machine; Hammond organs, Wurlitzer pianos, lap steel, dulcimer, drums, and numerous guitars were the chosen instrumentation for the project. This is a cohesive exploration through each members vision of indie-music -- psychedelic, rocking, and dreamy. With the opening drone-folk track "Golden Age", to the mid-album psych-pop "Thin Again", to the closing country-folk lullaby "Neon River", the fruit of these threes' labor is reflected on the twelve track self-titled album. A.M. Interstate traffics in a gauzy, mescaline-tinged sound not unlike Mazzy Star, Opal, Thin White Rope, and the venerable paisley rockers The Rain Parade.
