Album Notes
Cindy Kallet and Grey Larsen were in bed one morning (the same bed), waking up to news on the radio, when all of a sudden they were yanked from slumber by an unremitting rat-a-tat-tat musical barrage sandwiched between program segments. The mechanistic din penetrated Grey’s morning fog deeply enough to cause him to half open his eyes and murmur, “Makes me feel my robot roots . . . back when we were all machines.” Cindy, by now fully awake, with antennae ever alert to life’s pithy moments, swiftly and secretly captured these words on a dusty scrap of paper excavated from the bedside table. Soon after, she had cast his mumbled morning musings as the chorus of a new song, "Back When We Were All Machines." This song represents a departure from the duo's usual musical world. After getting wildly enthusiastic responses from audience members around the country, they decided to send the song over to their friend, musician and studio engineer, Izzy Maxwell (Death of the Cool), who added the techno touch.

Cindy and Grey are highly respected folk musicians who, between them, play guitar, Irish flute, tin whistle, concertina, fiddles, and harmonium. Their music encompasses styles from Irish to traditional American to original compositions to Swedish and beyond. Scott Alarik of The Boston Globe calls Cindy " of folk music's most respected songwriters... provocative, heartwise, and original ...a brilliant guitarist... ". Mike Joyce of the Washington Post calls Grey "... a gifted multi-instrumentalist who consistently demonstrates his melodic finesse," while The New Mexico Daily describes his playing as "positively spellbinding". Cindy and Grey have also appeared with host Andrea Seabrook on National Public Radio's "Weekend All Things Considered."
