The songs on "Crayon Jewels" were recorded over the span of two years and to a certain degree convey the dynamism of mood and perhaps genre, which has become one of our key features. And while we have difficulty precisely describing our sound in terms of concrete genres and wish not to pigeonhole ourselves, dynamism is perhaps the one characteristic that most accurately defines our music. Dynamism, however, is not only apparent in the differences between songs, but also within songs, which is to say that variations in time signature and phrasing are an essential part of the Memphis Pencils sound.
