Originally available as a tour-only release, The Sound of the Tone was recorded in true Carolyn Mark fashion. She, Tolan, and the latest addition to the band, enigmatic drummer New Guy worked day and night the week after Easter in a trailer down by Powell River, BC with a meager budget possibly funded by beer bottle returns.
A window into this pair’s genuine, funny and bright world. Trademark gigantic songs, with Carolyn’s stunning vocals and Tolan’s stellar guitar and so much more, intercut with hilarious answering machine excerpts. Oh yes. Any one of these songs is better than anything you’ve heard lately. Seriously. - Aaron Stewart, The Free Press
