"Recorded at Lord Baltimore Recordings by Rob Girardi over two months in the fall of 2008, Song Of The Pearl is Arbouretum's third full-length and the first to feature the same core band on every song. With Dave Heumann on guitar and vocals, Corey Allender on bass, Daniel Franz (also sometimes seen with Beach House) on drums, and Steve Strohmeier on guitar, Song Of The Pearl is more earthy and direct than the band's previous efforts. While Rites Of Uncovering seemed to peer down from a vantage point far above, Song Of The Pearl reaches out from within the mire itself. The songs seem to have more immediacy and urgency than that of its predecessor. Paradoxically, the album exudes hopefulness, even though the songs' protagonists are often ultimately and intrinsically doomed."
