While the Us Weekly fame goes to Conor Oberst & Jason Molina, RIVULETS has quietly established more stalkers to watch. ~ Opus

Demos captures an era of Rivulets that hasn’t been documented elsewhere. During the first formative year of Rivulets, an important part of the band was bass player Jason Seckel, who’s minimal long sustained notes style can finally be heard for the first time by many fans. You get to hear early versions of songs like “Four Weeks” & “Past Life” along with unreleased songs like “Sick Love” & our personal favorite “Anyway.”

The Alcohol EPs Remora/Rivulets/Pale Horse and Rider - The Alcohol EPs
CD Split 2002 | Silber 022
14 tracks, 72 minutes
$12 ($18 international, $5 download (256 kbps, ~128 megs))
Three projects, all of quite accomplished musicians, contributing to a concept album - an interesting idea and one pulled off here admirably. While all three take similar directions and help make this album cohesive, each has their own approach, which keeps the album interesting. Much better than a simple split EP, this is a split album of three EPs, a truly impressive project.
~ Delusions of Adequacy

You could say that Nathan, Brian, and Jon have each had their share of alcohol problems in the past. With enough hindsight and sobriety to make this undertaking a possibility, but not quite enough to forget the emotions stirred up by the booze, The Alcohol EPs is a collection of short releases by each artist, containing songs influenced by or written under the influence of alcohol.
