The Universe is Falling

by Big Newton

Well we like to think of it as Lounge Rock on this particular album. A softer edge than our current endeavour but a nice mix of lyrical and melodic influences such as say Steely Dan or Stevie Wonder with a bit of a Beatles' influence throughout.
Genre: Pop: Beatles-pop

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Big Newton
The Universe Is Falling
Released: 12/15/2001

The opening strains of "Lost" present a jazz-funk-pop musical melding with vaguely Elvis Costello-like vocal drawl and an eighties feel, but then the keyboard solo kicks in and we're transported to a Doors-era early 70's feel, then into an early-Genesis prog-rock middle section... With thoroughly modern and slick production Big Newton takes these disparate influences and sounds and takes the listener on a groovy musical journey mostly revolving around a 70's groovy soul-rock sound... Ably produced by local mixmeister Ross Murray (Alex Houghton, Cheza) the CD effectively showcases the band's guitar-based sound, smooth harmonies and solid rhythms. The band cites The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Zeppelin and Iron Maiden as influences - the first two we can see (especially Wonder) but the last two are a bit of a stretch. Their light jazz-pop sound may be just the break you need from the Korn and Eminem-centric radio dial.
