Across Tundras' debut full length is a loud, but chilly musical reimagining of the wide open spaces of the West--the Crazy Horse-inspired polar opposite of the Sons Of The Pioneers' cosy campfire anthems. On the frostbitten "Ode to George Parts 1 & 2," vocals issue forth from somewhere at the bottom of a canyon, while on the band's numb reworking of the traditional ballad "Aura Lea," tempos run at about the speed of a wagon train negotiating the upward incline of the Donner Pass.
