Eve McGivern I love all of his output (as thisqietarmy or otherwise), but I feel this is the most powerful work Eric has put together yet. The intensity can clearly be felt, even in the quietest passages, and this is simply experimentation that will take you to a zone pretty quickly. It has both a meditative yet anguished quality to it, a fierceness that resonates anger and just as quickly slides into resignation -- but the subject matter perfectly lends itself to that. Favorite track: Post-Truth.
