It seems like this two bands are made for each other. Each possessing a hazy like quality, almost a dream. – Fuzzy Sun
two bands, two takes on psychedelia: one freaky, one sludgy, both gloriously lo-fi – Bill Barnett via Twitter
This confirms my suspicion Michigan indeed does not exist. What kind of state is split into two parts? Absurd. – Greg Homan via Youtube
Talking about our first first vinyl release aka split between Skyjelly and Solilians. Its been about two months since it was released and we had plenty of press and podcast plays since then, so time to thank everyone that mentioned the split in some way or another…
First and foremost, there’s a recent livestream of the split that was done by Vapor Memory and gained cool 700+ views and a ton of amazing comments. Needless to say, we’re incredibly grateful to VM for an opportunity.
We got about 100+ copies of vinyl left and our friends at Wormhole World in UK still have 4 CD copies of the split in the vaults, so pick those up or just help spread the word about the release! On to the other things…
