Editors’ Notes

Steven Reker is a musician, dancer, and choreographer who's worked with David Byrne, Miranda July, and others. Luke Fasano drummed for Yeasayer for a number of years. With two other members on board, they join forces as People Get Ready; the resulting music feels like a tiny feather fluttering in the wind, buoyant and kinetic and free from gravity's restraints. Reker's voice veers between a sensual Bryan Ferry and—especially when paired with keyboardist Jen Goma (of A Sunny Day in Glasgow)—a quivering Russell Mael of the classic (and underrated) Sparks. Fasano bangs and drums—mostly on snares and toms—while dark organ notes underpin airy, fluttery vocals and jangling bells or a looped vocal chant spars with an echoing floor tom and churchy synths. "New June" has a beguiling goth–meets–global pop vibe, while "Windy Cindy" has a sweet, summery energy driving Reker's shiny guitars and Fasano's clattering percussion. PGR's live shows are reportedly equal parts performance art and indie rock hip-swayers, and this debut pegs the band as one to keep an eye on.

Great album!

I first heard New June on All Songs Considered and thought that was an amazing song. However, as I started listening to the rest of the CD I realized all of their songs were amazing. Each song has something to offer; it's like getting a cherry on top of each song. Give the album a full listen and you will most likely come out with a few favorites. The name of the group and album say it all; People get Ready.

The next Pink Floyd?

Love the group. He has the voice of an angel!
