“Land of the Lotus Eaters lives in a world where reality is obscured by fantasy and everything is thrown into question. It is about televised talent competitions getting more votes than the people who rule over us. It is about intelligence being synonymous with arrogance and mediocrity being celebrated at every turn. It is about celebrity having more value than integrity. It is about breaking free. It is about choosing to do better. It is about hope and possibility. It is about all of us.”

Stream the whole album through bandcamp

VICE Premiere: Sontiago’s “Muscle Car” Video

Our friends at Riot Act Media secured a video premiere with Vice Magazine for Sontiago’s new single “Muscle Car”.

Here is what they said:
“We were sent the premiere of Sontiago’s new video for “Muscle Car,” but we don’t know much about her. A brief Nancy Drew around her Facebook page reveals that she lives in Portland, Maine (What’s THAT like?), she spends her free time working as a teaching artist at a local non-profit writing center, has experience as a bartender, and invented Elmer’s Glue.”
