undiscovered treasure!


How have these two (Clark Stiles and Nathan Khyber) managed to make two previous albums with nary a blip on the musical radar? It is a travesty that can only be rectified with the acknowledgement and accolades that should follow from this album. At times atmospheric and cinematic, the Listeners can also find themselves being playful with the songs, while always remaining true to the original grain of inspiration for each song. This is a fine example of collaboration and musical evolution. This should be the album that puts The Good Listeners on the map!

Listen Good


This is a treasure of a band and a lucky find here on iTunes. Long may they daydream...

the new black


A friend asked me to check this out and write a review, I owe her a favor and she's hot.

I don't want to, but you do? I can't stop listening to this f-ing song (#2, I hate the title). When I first heard it it seemed like just another cool hipster'esque song that'd get played at any ol barfy eastside party in an I'm a f-ing-cool playlist with Tegan and Sarah followed by Radiohead (somebody kill me already). There's something so sad yet cheerful, I would punch it back in the stomach if it were an animate object. I've listened to it 20 something times now..somebody needs to erase this off my computer so I can write my mom back without digging into why she didn't let me make my own mistakes.

I saw these guys play at a art in a garage party in Silverlake a couple years ago and it was kind of astonishing. I hope they don't pull some stupid U2 type maneuvers when they get huge.

Put out now, ok?

About The Good Listeners

Portland natives Clark Stiles and Nathan Khyber co-founded the Good Listeners in 2006, following a move from the rainy northwest to Los Angeles. The pair recorded their debut album, Ojai, in ten short days, and their contribution to the Devil Wears Prada soundtrack helped increase their fan base on the West Coast. The release of a second album, Crane Point Lodge, followed before the year was up. After adding drummer Derek Brown and trumpeter/keyboardist Stewart Cole to their touring lineup, the Good Listeners spent much of the following two years on the road, capturing the experience on videotape. The footage was later used in a documentary film, Don’t Quit Your Daydream, which detailed the Good Listeners’ struggle as an independent touring band. The film was released in 2009, along with a studio album of the same name. ~ Andrew Leahey
