ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
While critics praised The Alrights debut album HIGH SCHOOL and the CD charted on some college radio stations around the country back in 2006, the boys in the band were smiling to themselves and saying, “You ain’t seen nothing yet”.

The Alrights have come zooming back down with a new EP long on title and even longer on talent. As good as HIGH SCHOOL was, The Alrights have grown by leaps and bounds and achieved a new maturity and musical excellence with “Meeting of the St. Louis County League of Volunteer Astronauts: Excerpts from the Keynote Address”. The brilliant new EP marks the group as one of the more potent creative forces in contemporary rock and pop. With their new EP, The Alrights are now about the place creatively that The Beatles were with the release of “Rubber Soul”--talents that have found themselves as a truly cohesive whole and found the beginning of their true, and very unique, sound.

For The Alrights this is a sound perhaps not as wildly diverse but even more compelling and accomplished than the earlier HIGH SCHOOL. The band features, once again, the tasteful drumming of Chad "Chavo" Amborn, the sweet harmonies and steady bass of Danny Cosgrove and the creative genius of keyboardist, guitarist and lead vocalist Toby Churchill. The marvelous songs are mostly by Churchill including, among others, the powerful “When I Get Born” and the Beatlesque and intellectually playful “Happy Birthday Universe” but Cosgrove holds his own with his contribution the punky, sparky “Love Love Love Love Love”.

The Alrights formed in the summer of 2003 although its members have known each other and played together for much longer. In the fall of 2005, after extensive gigging, the band was signed to a record deal by Manhattan's City Canyons Records. The Alrights will be touring extensive through the winter and spring of 2008.

Megastars!
Though the “Meeting of the St. Louis County League of Volunteer Astronauts: Excerpts from the Keynote Address” EP is a brief affair, it will go into the archive as an artifact of what Toby Churchill, Danny Cosgrove and Chad Amborn were up to right before they became megastars.

what more???
My only complaint is that the EP isn't long enough. Where o' where will it lead? It is amazing that songs this distinctive created an album this harmonious and consistent. That is right 5 stars baby.
