Motion Turns It On
Instrumental Psychedelic Progressive Jazz Post-Rock from Houston, TX

"The gauntlet has been thrown down to jazzy post-rockers everywhere, and there are very, very few bands right now with the ability to pick it up."-The Silent Ballet

"This track, Rima, is one of the most intense instrumentals I've ever heard, and yet there's a lot of breathing room between the instruments. It's impossible to pigeonhole these guys, but a description akin to "Instrumental progressive post-rock math-rocking psychadelic indie-jazz" may be a good start." -Insomnia Radio

"It is actually quite amazing the depth and diversity of MTIO's sound. The band can lull you into complacency with beautiful sections before heading off into a math rock frenzy to make sure you are paying attention. MTIO's schizophrenic nature makes it difficult for comparisons." -Sound As Language

"Their songs have a familiarity to them not so much because they sound like other bands, but more so because of the genuine and comfortable way in which they write and play their songs." -Amplifier Magazine

"MTIO turns post-rock into a glowing asteroid that's fun for the whole family. No more dense mathematic textbook guitars and drumming; this asteroid has soul and jive. It's something you can dance to without working about getting your ankles in a knot." -Slug Magazine
