Volume XII: There'll Be Diamonds
A marked shift from the gentle folk-pop sound that fans throughout the Northwest have become intimately familiar with, Volume XII is, according to singer/songwriter Scott Garred, Super XX Man's "most sonically ambitious album to date." The new album features thirteen songs "chronicling the lives of persons with mental illness," says Garred, a subject he knows firsthand through his work as a music therapist at the oldest psychiatric institution in his home state, the Oregon State Hospital.
