This four piece Richmond band exhibits a talent and grace well beyond their years. After the release of two stellar EP's, Gregor Samsa delivers their much anticipated debut full length. 55:12 is an eight song journey submerged in dreamy, multi-layered atmospherics. The band blurs the lines of ambient and indie, from heavy and dark one moment to hushed and serene the next, all while lullaby guy/girl vocals drift overhead. Gregor Samsa is Champ Bennett, Nikki King, Jason Laferrera and Billy Bennett. The album was tracked at the Recorditorium in Richmond, engineered by Jason Laferrera and produced by Gregor Samsa. The mix was done by legendary studio man Brian Paulson (Slint, Wilco, Beck). Alternative Press: "Allusions to contemporary architects Mogwai and Godspeed You Black Emperor! would be fair, but Gregor Samsa leave just as much to the imagination by what they leave out rather than what they put in: Spaces become breathes and breathes become whispers. And this whisper is sublime." 9/10
