"Pivot" pushes Amoeba's diffuse and hypnotic sound into a finely etched excursion towards universal emotional landscapes, hinting at elements beyond our control. Molded from influences of British folk-rock, organic ambience, psychedelia and personal unveiling, "Pivot" sounds more melodic and discreet than Rich & Davies debut "Watchful" but still dreamy and introspective, a worthy successor and a unique experience in the realm of introspective songwriting.

Personnel: Robert Rich - voice, piano, harmonium, synths, steel guitar, flutes. Rick Davies - electric and acoustic guitars.

with: Don Swanson - drums Andrew McGowan - bass Hans Christian - cello BobDog Catlin - megaptera vina (Underground) Forrest Fang - violin (Sparks) Tom Heasley - Tuba (Traces, Sparks)
