Album Notes
Building on the success of 2001's critically acclaimed, Too Loud for the Snowman, Sanford Arms drive into The Twilight Era. Working again with producer, Tucker Martine (Modest Mouse, Bill Frisell, Jim White), the new record highlights the band's cinematic sound with eleven beautifully crafted songs that ruminate on life's arrivals, departures and the space in between. Comprised of primary songwriter, Ben London, guitarist Harris Thurmond, drummer, Rob Dent, bassist Jeff Wood, and multi-instrumentalist Rob Witmer, Sanford Arms hit their stride on The Twilight Era

The Stranger

startlingly beautiful collection of songs
On Friday, February 20, short of cloning, there will be some tough decision-making since there are two great shows happening simultaneously in Ballard and Belltown. Sanford Arms, who are playing the Sunset Tavern with Marc Olsen, celebrate the release of their sublime new album, The Twilight Era, recorded with producer extraordinaire Tucker Martine. It's another ethereal, startlingly beautiful collection of songs from the quartet fronted by Ben London. The hushed, atmospheric sound can be deceptive at first like the surface calm of a lake, before hidden depths and undercurrents reveal the transcendent beauty of life's small moments embraced, regretted, and shaken off.

The Seattle Times

a stunningly good second album
• If enough critics give "The Twilight Era" a listen, Sanford Arms could land on next year's Village Voice list. In any case, this Seattle band's latest is a quintessential Northwest album. On a gloomy, chilly, sun-deprived day, it perfectly fits the mood, taking the edge off things without being overly optimistic.

On the other hand, "Twilight" feels out of place on a cheerful, sunny day. Fortunately for Sanford Arms, we don't have too many of those to worry about.

Sanford Arms, led by former Alcohol Funnycar singer Ben London, hit the Seattle scene with "Too Loud for the Snowman," a moody gem back in 2001. "The Twilight Era," released this week, is even better, a stunningly good second album from a band that isn't flashy, loud or obnoxious — in a town where at least two of the above are often needed to be popular.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer

a good thing
Sanford Arms blends the lugubrious dirges of Josh Hayden's Spain with the swirling pop of newer Flaming Lips. This is a good thing.
