Review: Spring ’68 delivers on ‘Sightseeing Thru Music’ album

Great write up in Digital Journal on Spring'68!

“Sightseeing Thru Music” is a breath of fresh air. It is positive, vibrant, and compelling; moreover, it helps provide an escape during the trying times that the world is going through. There is something in it for everybody, and it garners two thumbs up.

Sightseeing Thru Music, by Spring '68

Out this Friday, October 22nd!
"Self-sufficient and drenched in agreeable reverb, it artfully brings together tape loops and outside contributions into a concise 10-tracker that seems to relish its musical freedom. As a singer-songwriter, Rogers undoubtedly carries the shades of Ian Hunter and echoes of Dylan. Refreshingly, though, as an album, this sound unlike anything either would likely conjure, which goes to make Spring ’68 all the more interesting"
