Eleventh Dream Day - Since Grazed

Since Grazed is either the 14th or 16th record depending on how you count them (but who's counting?) by Eleventh Dream Day, a Chicago band with Kentucky roots. After 2015’s blistering guitar blast, Works For Tomorrow, Janet Beveridge Bean, Rick Rizzo, and Douglas McCombs return alongside James Elkington and Mark Greenberg. The hour of music on this 2xLP takes the long road home, spacing out at the wheel and reveling in the journey - celebrating those along for the ride.
