The latest single from Southerly, Meeting Marie b/w Moon Sets The Sun, takes a more simplistic songwriting approach focusing more on acoustic arrangements than the all-out rock and orchestral pop barrage of other Southerly material.

"...treads a fine line between lush and minimal, his linear guitar shifting in and out of intense percussion and pastoral orchestrations." - Billboard
"The songs are especially well written and very original." - Punk Planet
"Krist Krueger is a boundless talent hiding among our ranks. The Portland artists lush, orchestral pop is reminiscent of Richard Ashcroft, Elliott Smith, Brendan Benson, and Stuart Staples." - Willamette Week
