15 Degrees Below Zero's CD "New Travel" builds upon the process oriented soundscapes of previous releases to create new refined, compositional narratives that emerge between the planes of discord and melody. The eleven tracks explore transitory spaces of cinematic like sound interiors, digital and analog atmospheres accompanied by guitar, piano, and sampled melodies -- clipped, recontextualized and re-presented.

"15 Degrees Below Zero is a majestic and often cinematic work, its colors produced both from sampled and live sound." - Mike Wood, Music Emmissions
"There is some serious blood drawn in this collection of maelstroms that can drag depression out of a being, transforming it in a kind of rage that bubbles within while remaining unexpressed, thus alimenting the will of resisting for another couple of hours or so." - Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes
"...they've certainly captured a mood here, their various whooshes, blips, and ondulations more than sufficient to occasionally send some shivers up and down your spine." - Pete Pardo, Sea of Tranquility
"There is a wonderfully abstract quality to 15 Degrees Below Zero's style, something akin to the works of Tomandandy or the earlier works of Einstürzende Neubauten." - Ilker Yücel, ReGen Magazine
"15 Degrees Below Zero take hold of the territory between droning ambiance and noise and meshes it together quite well." - Charlie Martineau, Connexion Bizarre
"Fans of Eno, Flying Saucer Attack, My Bloody Valentine (especially Kevin Shields’ work on Lost in Translation) should definitely take note." - Your Imaginary Friend, KZSU 90.3 FM
"This West Coast-located trio pursues the art of multitasking while owing up to the press notes regarding its cinematic propensities, all iterated thru a gamut of stylizations, spanning classic space-rock to avant-garde noise music. In sum, this unit provides plenty of ammo for one’s psyche to run rampant. A Top-flight venture all the way…" - Glenn Astarita, jazzreview.com
"...they achieve something that many experimental artists can not, which is using unconventional methods to create music that stirs the emotions." - Chain D.L.K.
