the Zaireeka liner notes

Mike Cina is like the ghost of Josef Muller-Brockmann channeled through the distilled essence of Reid Miles' Blue Note album covers while listening to a badly corrupted mp3 rip of Beck's "Midnite Vultures" and driving a Shelby Mustang Cobra GT500 across the crystallized salt flats of Venus on your way to share a palm-wood cask of cherry pop rocks with Sade.
