How Acoustic Minds got an Electric Sol - Oregon Music News Preview
Last year, OMN already used up the headline Acoustic Minds as you’ve never heard them, yet it seems to apply here once again. Twin sisters Amanda and Jenni Price are releasing their EP “Electric Sol” this Saturday at the Star Theater, you’ve never heard them like this either.
As is often the case with prolific artists you’ll find that change is the only constant. That is definitely what’s going on here. With every passing year this group is maturing and expanding their art into new territory. Not that electronic music is anything new for Jenni and Amanda, who are long-time fans of Drum n Bass and dance music. They’ve just finally been able to incorporate the effects and sounds into their band. Aaron Altemose plays the heavy synth hits just as well as he plays the grand piano, Josh Burns can transform into the human drum machine, and Josh Lorenzen’s bass effects can wobble as good as any keyboard bass in the biz.
Amanda Price talked about the band’s transition, “Aaron Altemose our keyboard player really sparked the electronic fire. In our past experience we had brought electronic style songs to the band and would be met with resistance, when Aaron joined the project it felt natural.”
The band has been talking about modifications in the name due to the sound shift, opting for the more simplified abbreviation “A.M.” Jenni confirmed that although they’re on a new path, there will always be an acoustic side to Acoustic Minds. The girls still perform often as an duo or trio, Amanda still plays her acoustic guitar. Above all, the vocal harmonies are always rock solid and spine chilling.
What hasn’t changed is the tenacity at which this group seeks to reach it’s goals. They gig relentlessly in clubs in the winter and throughout the festival circuit all along the West Coast in the summer. Their time is split between Northern California and Oregon, although they still consider P-town their home. Though they’ve had less time to pair up with their old mates Keegan Smith and Marv Ellis they are still on stage with Lafa Taylor and Jah Sun when time permits. Right now their focus is on themselves, and their audience. Amanda commented, “We have so many messages in this CD, but it’s truly about loving you for you, being proud of your abilities, taking those passions and making your dreams a reality.”

Acoustic Minds Electric Sol - http://kpsu.org/posts/579
Twins Jenni and Amanda Price have broken away from being back up singers for great bands such as Keegan Smith, Marv Ellis, and Pilar French to create their own unique sound. The release of "Electric Sol" encapsulates their decades long progress as musicians.

Soul, electronica, heavy rock, and so many other genres of music are hinted at or straight blasted into your ears from this unique album. Now a 5 piece band with their own sound Acoustic Minds have made a complete departure from acoustic only to fully embrace the electronic soul music on the new album.

During the Acoustic Minds interview on KPSU, Jenni Price summed the album up best "great female vocals with a heavy womp wom sound". Really the beautiful harmonies, Drum n Bass, and synth define this album.

Aaron Altemose's fancy DNB with infrared controller makes it danceable and fun to watch. Josh Lorenzen masterful synth work gives the music a fun 80s feel. Live Drumming by Josh Burns provides that slight nod heavy rock. The Price sisters amazing soulful vocal harmonies tie everything together. The music surrounds you like a hug, simultaneously makes you wanna dance like nobody is watching.

Willamette Week - Review
[PORTLAND POP] Portland twin sirens Amanda and Jenni Price, known together as Acoustic Minds, specialize in their own blend of soul and New Millennium dance pop. Their work has two completely different, though not necessarily opposing, sides: a quiet, acoustic side rife with gorgeous blues and soul influences and a loud, club-banging side that is rich in synths and lyrics about the type of love at first sight that can happen only on the dance floor. Citing such influences as Rihanna and Katy B, the band is crossing over more fully to the latter\'s side; its new album, Electric Sol, sports synthy club jams fit to get a little sauced and make out with a rando to.
