Here is a bit about Spoils For Survivors by writer, Lori Latimer:

"Originally hailing from Virginia , the Crayons settled in Athens , Georgia in 2003 and slid into the psychedelic pop scene. They soon quietly outgrew their "twee" reputation and suddenly found their limbs jutting awkwardly out of the confines of their stereotype.

Donning a new sound and message, The 63 Crayons' brand of sexy, stomping pyschedelia can ease one onto the dance floor and their irreverant lyrical and musical sense of humor can lighten the spirit. However, there lies a caustic wit and jolting honesty that is both completely disarming and utterly welcomed.

With Spoils For Survivors, we are given a point of view - an actual perspective that holds significance with the audience. Songwriter Charlie Johnston provides a variety in narration that alternates from his own eyes, to the omniscient, and to cleverly sketched characters in order to convey a single sense of urgency.

As our current political climate grows more daunting and our reactions dull and subside, the Crayons voice their anger and mortification at the comfort and arrogance so many Americans fell while living in a country at war. Yet there is hope in the music, but for the Crayons, it is a wholly determined hope that is propelled by past disappointment and unnerved idealism."
