It seems a logical step to follow up Scissor Tail Editions 2012 reissue of "The Hired Hand" with these two beautifully constructed pieces of music from artists residing on separate sides of the planet. Both Padang Food Tigers and Chaz Prymek AKA (Lake Mary) employ similar instrumentations to that of Bruce Langhorne's "The Hired Hand". Banjo's play the lead role for both artists in building imaginary desolate landscapes. Guitar and piano float in and out. These could easily be heard as companion pieces "Crabbing King Sappling" builds heavy cinematic tension while "White River" acts as a blissful release. Both artists are apt creators of space and masters of turning your repetitive thoughts into wandering nomads. -Scissor Tail

The seven-inch split by Padang Food Tigers (Spencer Grady and Stephen Lewis) and Lake Mary (Chaz Prymek) is over quickly at eight minutes but not so quickly that it fails to make an impression. Banjo's the common element in both tracks, with Padang Food Tigers using piano, banjo, and acoustic guitars to tell a timeless tale of loss and woe in “Crabbing King Sappling” in three minutes. In complementary manner to the A-side piece, Lake Mary applies a blissful textural approach to the delicate evocation “White River,” even if guitars and banjos do seem hellbent on stirring up some dust during the piece's strings-enhanced second half. charms in its own way, too. One comes away from the EP, as short as it is, reminded of the line authored by William Congreve all the way back in 1697, “Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast.” -Textura
