All Together continues the mysterious narrative of the band and it exalts their existence as a two-man wall of sound. The pounding energy of their live show --- with Chris and Andrew side-by-side, simultaneously hammering their instruments, sweat flying --- resides in ten exquisitely constructed tracks. In the studio (Scott Solter\'s), every idea was given its voice; a range of guest instruments embellished the core magic of Andrew\'s vocals and keys and Chris\' drums. All Together embraces the vocabulary of the band\'s experienced and obsessive recording language, yet it holds on to that unmistakable dynamism of their live performance.
Furthering All Together\'s lore is its song-by-song relationship to a series of old photographs. Found by Andrew\'s brother on the street in Philly, ten tiny early 20th century images formed Pattern is Movement\'s own set of Oblique Strategies. Each photo abstractly inspired a song and its final form on the record, with Andrew and Chris even referring to the pictures during tracking. The record\'s name also arose from the connotation of this found collection: though essentially disparate, we\'re ultimately all together in our experience. Once time passes, all our pictures tell the same story
