iTunes Review

The Los Angeles–based band Correatown is fronted by Angela Correa, who specializes in creating gauzy dream-pop with ample help from a backing band that exudes a seasoned finesse in its musicianship. The group's fourth studio album, Pleiades, opens with “Valparaiso,” an airy piece of indie folk-pop played with restraint and charm. Correa’s self-harmonies resonate with the rich saturation of its similar-sounding L.A. sister band Willow Willow. Some prickly piano notes spice up the following “Further,” which blends the gossamer '90s indie rock of Velocity Girl with a Bat for Lashes sophistication. But through all the cool analog textures and effects, it’s Correa’s winsome melodies that stand out. With songs like the romantic “Everything, All at Once” and the Southern California lullaby “Sunset & Echo,” it’s easy to understand why Correatown’s recordings have soundtracked hit TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Ugly Betty, and How I Met Your Mother. The darker-sounding “Isomer” deviates from the sunflared beauty, as Correa’s silky voice sings a fawning melancholia over syncopated handclaps and a menacing keyboard drone.

I like it.

Shine Right Through

2 tracks here r my top 2 songs played on my ipod: Further & Shine Right Through. (I bought an earlier-released version last year.) There are bright pop elements but mostly the recording plays a perfect reflective soundtrack to a sunset through dawn trip throughout L.A. & the desert (or just metaphorically in your head). Melancholic meanderings w/ the warmth of Angela Correa's angelic, yet sultry, melodies & harmonies float, sink, & rise in & out of these songs. Instantly loved her voice when I 1st heard her on a local station, singing the opening track just w/ a gtr. & have never turned back! Love that it's a true album that is enjoyable to listen all in its entirety, but sometimes a little dose is all you need :)

Beautiful, hopeful, softly glowing music

I was just recently introduced to this band, and the minute I heard "Further" I knew I had to buy the whole album. It didn't disappoint. The songs are soft, but full of emotion and heart. It's both lo-fi and orchestral-swirly-shoegazy at the same time…if Galaxie 500/Luna and Mazzy Star had a really, really beautiful baby together, it'd be Correatown. Except while I'm saying that, this music really isn't derivative--it's its own unique thing--and certainly no one else's voice sounds like Angela Correa's.

Listen to this CD when you want to drift off to sleep peacefully. Listen to it when you're driving fast with the sun out and the windows down, and you want to feel your heart stir with joy and hope. Listen to it when you want to set a romantic mood. Listen to it when you're having a picnic in the park and bonding with friends. Strangely, this album works perfectly for any and all of these, and for a variety of other moods. Speaks to the power of the music that it's this versatile.

All the songs are great, but "Further" and "Shine Right Through" are my absolute favorites (though it's really hard to choose).
