Posted by on January 11, 2017

We’ve big fans of Intervals here. The brainchild of Aaron Marshall, instrumental the majority of the time, just wrapped up a tour with Animals as Leaders and Plini (photos here).

While Mike Semesky sang on last year’s A Voice Within, he’s left the band, meaning the band’s returned to being instrumental. Being instrumental fits them well, though. “Fable,” a track from the album, features saxophonist Leland Whitty, who’s played with BadBadNotGood. If you’re a fan […]
