"Muse Oasis calls themselves American Desert Music, but it's much more than that. These haunting melodies, starting with the belly dancer anthem "Amelia", play to the beat of World Music while keeping it simple and tantalizingly elegant. There are song after song of rich and delightful melodies, including the percussion-happy "Shimon" and the darkly melodic "Moon Drive". Overall, an extremely well balanced and super marketable collection of timely, sweet, and inspired instrumental musicianship." - A&R Select
