Customer Reviews

Outstanding. All of it.

Of their 3 albums, the first, "In One Era Out The Other" shows the band forming, setting the tone for Silver Lake bands to follow -- the strings, the moody melodies, the balance of dark and light -- the album is a classic and somewhat of an indie masterpeice in its own right. American Oil was 50% awesome and rocked out, 50% ... not so great. Based On a True Story may be their most solid effort. It's outstanding. All of it. Only 8 songs but solid all the way through. Produced by Dave Newton, formerly of the UK 80's band Mighty Lemon Drops (who has also recorded Henry Clay People, Happy Hollows, etc.), the album is rich and dense in its songwriting, production and melodies. The keyboard work is astounding, the vocals cut right through, the guitars shimmer like rain on many songs. Don't pass this up. It's a shame and amazing this album was never picked up by a label or recognized outside the LA blogosphere. I saw them at one of their last shows at Spaceland and they blew the audience's mind. I've never seen people dance like that at a hipster LA rock show before.
