The Onion AV Club says of the release, “Moen deepens and expands on Inter-Be’s rich palette, building out Pisano’s meditative and even somber songs into complex, layered creations spiced with surprising fills, melodic touches, and glitchier elements that keep the mood from ever settling in one place.” Minnesota Public Radio praises the music saying, “Using guitar pedals like paint brushes with a palette of colors, Pisano manages to make the duo fill every inch of the musical canvas with bright sounds and thick melodies, resulting in a lush feel.” Consequence of Sound lauds the band’s second release “evolv[ing] a more coherent signature sound” and gives Garden of Arms 4 out of 5 stars.

You can buy the album right now from SC Distribution or through iTunes Indie Music Spotlight.
