The Stares are an easy obsession to acquire. The voices of songwriters Angie Benintendi and Drew Whittemore lead you with eyes fixated on some distant invisible expanse, treading so slowly, so beautifully, through landscapes familiar, but sprinkled with some kind of heavy magical realism that just can’t be described. “Americana” maybe, but with roots so deep in the earth that there’s no geography that could ever really contain it; these songs seem to simply be rising up out of themselves. Well, wherever they come from, you cannot help but be drawn into their shadowy landscape. There’s no question: your first encounter with this music will be one you’ll remember. Forever.

“To say their sound is a rare find in this town is a laughable understatement.”
   — Jeff Rush, Tablet
