There's nothing I can really say to pinpoint the genius of Dweller On The Threshold so here's an excerpt from Enemies List Home Recordings, who released this amazing album...
"The ever-shifting membership features ex-members of Death To Tyrants, Daniel Striped Tiger, and The Toll, recorded by Will Killingsworth (Ampere, Orchid, Bucketful Of Teeth, etc), all Western Massachusetts legends. Even the way the band is constructed – a rotating line-up of 8 friends scattered all over the East Coast – played it’s part, keeping the compositions varied, fresh, but unified throughout the whole of the album. As for the music – it was brooding, but not overwhelming, gloomy but not depressing, lots of echoes and reverberations and a feeling of wide open spaces that reminded me more of the American midwest than any recent country or western music ever had. This is music for the Great Plains, or maybe Space, like the nebula featured on the album’s cover. Even the interplay of the instruments, loosely draped over one another, leisurely taking their time as they progress from minimalist and wistful to crushing, soaring, triumphant, contributes to that feeling of everything spreading out in front of you, a whole vista of emptiness opening up."
