“the best Portland album of 2017”  -Scott Derr, Turn Turn Turn, Black Jack Records

3. Epilogue

From the cassette:
“Gnome Coffin is a gestalt organism experiment first begun in Corvallis, OR in late 2009. Conjuring the moniker ‘Gnome Coffin’ was condign–a spirit equitable to the unconditionally open nature of the band. This music is for, and by, all of us.”

praise:
“I can guarantee you that you will never play here again.”
-Mike Harver (~late 2010), then-manager of Bombs Away Cafe in Corvallis.

“Atmosphere. That’s what this record is about. But certainly not an atmosphere I’ve ever breathed before” -Agustín Soto

“I’ve been listening to Sinthaxis during my yoga practice at home for the past week and it’s awesome to convene on the spirit plane with your music. I stayed in headstand 7 minutes with the help of Nelson’s Retreat. And, it reminds me of one of my favorite records ever, Clube da Esquina.”  –Angela James
