iTunes Review

Ghost Notes found five singer/songwriters bringing their own individual tunes to the studio very shortly after forming, which made for a good listen that was somewhat void of cohesion. On Approach resonates with more personality and chemistry. It sounds like the collaboration of five guys who toured the country in a small van and shared cramped sleeping quarters where the combined experiences of arguing, laughing, partying and sharing ideas between gigs are the norm. “Let Go” opens with hard-panned guitars that jangle with classic tones over a meat-and-potatoes Brit-pop rhythm while Russell Pollard croons with that familiar nasal-tinged inflection made popular by guys like Bono and Chris Martin. But his singing segues into a smoother style on the attractive “Dots,” which waltzes with ‘50s innocence as doo-wop inspired backing vocals somehow blend perfectly with baroque-pop accoutrements like flutes and strings. The soaring “Tall Buildings” blends Jay Bennett-era Wilco arrangements with Imagine-era John Lennon piano-rock all the while retaining Everest’s collective style and elegant finesse.

Sounds good

Everest made one of the best songs on their last album which was rebels and the roses go buy that song first then give this album a try.

Best yet

Another breath of fresh air from Everest. Let Go is an instant summer classic, keeping the score gives you a glimpse of what they can do live and house of 9s crushes everything. This will easily be the best album you have bought thus year.

these guys rock

also saw them open for Minus the Bear, a new band for me, and I actually liked Everest better than the headliner. great onstage and the album sounds pretty good as well.

Comprised of five singer/songwriters, the members of L.A.'s indie alt-country band Everest boast some impressive pedigrees, having played with groups like Earlimart, Sebadoh, the Folk Implosion, Slydell, Mike Stinson, Great Northern, Alaska!, John Vanderslice, and the Watson Twins. Sharing a mutual admiration for each other's respective track records, the five were drawn together by a common desire to make classic-sounding pop songs in the style of earthy bands like Wilco and Calexico.
