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 the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
