Glide interviews the members of Birmingham's Through the Sparks.

Lazarus Beach has been out for a few months now and is considered one of the undiscovered gems of the year. Are you satisfied with the response to it or has it been frustrating that hasn't been all over the radio/internet?

Greg: That's quite a compliment - "undiscovered gem" - just that response alone is worth it. As for radio play and such, when your record is not being spun a lot, you have to remind yourself you didn't write these songs to be played on the radio - at least as singles. Under my own admission, I was hoping these songs would be listened to as a collection, an album - namely the reason why the record is only 36 minutes or so. At this day and age, asking folks to commit even that much time is quite a favor.
