Quiet! works to redefine the rock concept album with Lotus Flowers, a song cycle which depicts in music, a year in the life of a lonely flower shop keeper. Featuring two songs for each passing season, it's a sonic love letter to the expansive sounds of the late 60's/ early 70's. Lotus Flowers was captured on 2 inch tape at Portland, OR's Old Standard Sound.


released May 1, 2014

Songs and production by Chris Read. Engineered by Justin Higgins, Cover Art by Justine Todd and Matt Blanks.
