[Their] full and eclectic mix of sounds results in a modern string quartet capable of incredible delicacy—folk, jazz manouche, Latin and other genres subtly shine through their quiet dynamic, which calls for the listener’s church-like reverence, preferably under candlelight.

Listening to Aspen Artichoke, it's obvious that the sparse arrangements have been painstakingly, carefully considered. From the opening track "Artery of America," with its delicately finger-picked acoustic guitar and snatches of lush vocal harmonies and violin, to the sprawling closer "Children of the Sun," you get the sense that one of Ré's musical tenets is that less is often so much more.
