Floods' solitary offering, Transmission, arose from honest love, was completed from sadness and desperation, and finally polished into a smooth stone by time and distance. Though the great majority of its simple riffs and beats were performed during one sleepless weekend, as the calendar year rolled from late night to early morning (2002 going into 2003), the final product is only now being released.

The story is that of a young man and woman. They are in love. A very straightforward story: Due to unspecified circumstances, the young man and woman are temporarily separated by many states, rivers, and trains. They look forward to meeting again. Though they will spend Christmas apart, the New Year will be theirs. They speak of great things. They plan adventures, make promises, share dreams. Upon their reunion, however, something has passed. The woman is no longer happy, and the young man cannot please her. A sudden end, a break, a stillness. Stephen Mejias, guitarist of New Jersey's Multi-Purpose Solution, called on his close friend, Brother Todd, to help him set these moods to music. The result is a gentle but urgent thing -- a call for help, a last kiss goodbye -- Transmission by Floods.
