"They have used their emotive vocals and dreamy soundscapes to establish themselves as a unique voice in their southwest desert home...This is a flawless display of the way good art can simultaneously make statements about the world."
-The Music Butcher
"..a moody, broody ambience decorated with cold and faraway feeling textures."
"M. Crane are a fascinating band who take story-telling to new heights...dashes of Muse and Radiohead flicker in and out of view, but by the end of the experience, all hints of inspiration have rightfully stepped aside – as you try to get your head around the concept, you inevitably form a connection with the sound and creative expression that is simply M. Crane. Absolutely a band worth exploring."
"The vocals are emotive and have a painful energy behind them."
"These guys really do have a lot going on under whirring, whiny guitars and haunting, ghostly vocals."
-Rock the Pidgeon
A SHORT STORY
.:. There was never any more inception than there is now
Nor any more youth or age than there is now
And will never be any more perfection than there is now
Nor any more heaven or hell than there is now .:.
This music is honest about pain and beauty. It's for lovers, thinkers, poets, mothers, zealots and my idols...for myself and for you. Most all of the songs come from poems, inspired by Yeats, Whitman and Rilke or Dumas, Emily Brontë, Dostoyevsky, Austen and Tolkien or still Dylan, Morrissey, Van Morrison, Edith Piaf, Tchaikovsky and Chopin - whomever I'm reading or listening to, whatever I'm doing or not doing, whatever I love or hate - and whatever has heat to it gets its own music.
