Building on the bones of their 2006 debut, Shadows Rise, Travel by Sea return Spring of 2008 with their sophomore LP Days of My Escape. Once again crafted over the wire - separated by the wilderness between California and Colorado - Travel by Sea's Kyle Kersten and Brian Kraft use the distance to their advantage. The space and airiness of the opening notes put the wheels in a slow motion descent down the San Diego highway, setting off an eleven song post-folk soundscape replete with hopeful melancholy and longing melodies. From pulsed hush to sparse country singe, Kraft provides a seemingly limitless sonic and instrumental palette of which to augment Kersten's vocal vignettes. The Broken West's Dan Iead and Pink Nasty guest.
