Press:

“This album is gentle,relaxing and wondrous,just like a mini fairytale orchestra is performing for you in your living room. Totally enchanting.”

“…This may well be an album that unsurprisingly develops a cult status.”
– Phil Carter, FATEA

“If Ivor and Viv were alive they would thoroughly approve.”
– Russ The French Flyer, DJ

A lovely, mostly-instrumental album by Seattle-based storytellers, Mr. and Mrs. Muffins. The music here moves effortlessly from the simple and unsophisticated (a melodica or a toy piano picking out a melody) to very accomplished string passages and multi-layered soundscapes with airy choral arrangements that give you the chills. These recordings originally featured as interludes on the Muffins’ first two audio books, and the child-like sensitivity that pervades the album is tempered by longing and just the right shade of melancholy. It’s a winning formula.
