about

Recorded from May-August of 2011 in the basement of Pine Cone Castle, Minneapolis, MN.

12" vinyl available from spacelunglandbreathing.com

"...there’s passion in this drunken waltz. That to-and-fro has a certain quality that seems honest and unguarded. Minneapolis’ Orchard Thief has created the fragilest of sound that dances around your inebriated mind, unable to land for fear of the nausea setting in." - Smoke Don't Smoke

"...there are a number of aspects that set Sensational apart from previous works and show Molstad evolving and coming into his own as an artist. For one thing, the nine tracks on the new record are often substantially and conventionally melodic. And I don’t mean this in a bad way. Molstad still weirds things up pretty well with stuff like “Cheerleader’s Returns” psychedelic guitar squalls or “Dank Sprankles” minimally pastoral meditation to the tune of chirping birds. While maintaining its “experimental” uniqueness, the sound on Sensational is more palatable and mature. Molstad’s highly-reverbed guitar tones and ghostly mutterings convey a lazy, melancholy mood. It’s mostly pretty music that doesn’t resort to tired pop tactics." - Reviler
