Solar Powered People is a four piece rock/shoegaze band from the Central Valley of California. Emerging from a previous band, Apollo Trigger, Ryan Coscia, Doug McKinnon, and Tony Pennington created the solid foundation that is now Solar Powered People over three years ago. Dustin Morris was added into the fold within the last year and has helped the band reach the perfect blend of atmosphere and rock. Fresh from recording their second full-length, Living Through the Low, Solar Powered People are poised to launch into a bright future that should eclipse their already well accomplished past. At a live Solar Powered People show, the audience can expect an experience similar to receiving a hug from a friendly grizzly bear. The sound the band produces is enveloping, warm and powerful with just enough grit to leave a few claw marks. Some of the songs cut through the atmosphere with pace and power, while others sweep and swirl, wrapping the listener into a haze of sound. The various levels of volume, pace and space are anchored by two consistent elements. The always-solid rhythm section provided by Coscia and McKinnon give every song a sturdy backbone. Coscia’s powerful drumming and McKinnon’s tasteful bass lines are the rails on which each song can successfully roll from. The second consistent element is the melodic hooks layered into the guitars. There are no pointless notes in Morris’ or Pennington’s guitar lines. The weaving of guitar parts gives the listener many layers to uncover while listening. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ( One last to go " Hibernation " [ MySpace ] | [ Last.fm ]). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Artist - Solar Powered People Album - Living Through the Low [ * * * * * ] Release Date - 2009 Genre - Shoegaze, Post-rock Tracklist 01.

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’

Review of A703 by Naal

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
