Ten Cent Days / Press

“Haunting, dark, desolate, complex, beautiful, joyous ... Ten Cent Days are all of these things and more. Unfortunately, I do not have personal experience with popular bands to compare Ten Cent Days with, so I must do with this incomplete description: while the basic melody of their acoustic-folk music is fundamentally straightforward, the complex layering of instrumentation, lyrics and vocal harmonies creates a rather unique sum that only rarely delves into any kind of conventional rock or pop sensibility.”

“The name, Ten Cent Days, suits the band's musical and visual style, referencing depression-era imagery, Banas said, noting his personal favorite description of the band as "music for a wake," as described by a fan.”

“The verses of the two scribes are augmented by a sound that merges gritty, dark folk overtones and courtesy of Yeagle's cello, a slight chamber music feel that propels the strummed melodies and harmonized vocals. There are subtle dynamic shifts in the songs that are deftly navigated by drummer Shuman's restrained grooves and fills.”
