This is soft music with sharp detail. Soft as dirt you've just turned with a shovel. And now you can see something in that dirt, something you didn't notice before. It's sharp, it's edges filed to a desired shape... they are letters... and words... the lyrics of Ill Lit. This is the detail, poking from the soft loam.

Ill Lit is band of old minds, but young hands and ears - they drape their songs in Americana dust (and dirt), then knock some of it off with electronic gurgles, clangs, and squiggles.
