Air Quotes' orchestral commentary "Spanish Class Fantasies" longs for bygone days

Air Quotes are an orchestral rock outfit with an emphasis on orchestra. I mean their Facebook page lists the band members as Mattan Cohen, Preston Walker, Michelle Saddic, Thomas Peaslee, Mike Diggs and (drum roll) several orchestras. They are based out of Los Angeles and their latest offering Spanish Class Fantasies is as beautifully wrought as a George Gershwin song and full of adroit melodies and cleverly charming lyrics held up by embracing strings and horn sections. 

Spanish Class Fantasies is about a time when "nothing was a disappointment because everything was a possibility."
Featuring a 27 piece orchestra, recorded in a dry stage at Angel Studios, London.
