ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Here's some press-

LA TIMES- “Morning Macumba is a collection of gorgeous, fully formed ‘60’s international vocal pop… How such grand, embraceable vocal harmonies have flown so long under the radar is a bit of a mystery.”


AMPLIFIER- “The pop renaissance of the 90’s owes much of its success to talented, young indie artists like Tony Carbone.”


MOJO- “Best stick with Bikeride’s 37 Secrets I Only Told America, creamy Anglophile indie jazz pop, with Moog, Wurlitzer, and Latino beats.”


CMJ- “Satellite photos from high above California have revealed a strange and wonderful new talent with the unlikely, Scorsese-character-like name of Tony Carbone. As leader of the unwieldy Bikeride collective, Carbone’s assembled the latest in a line of uncategorizable Golden State pop masterpieces.”


OC WEEKLY- “Back to Morning Macumba for a sec: this was the album that moved us from "They’re not bad" Bikeride fence-sitters to drooly-faced, bug-eyed, heavy-breathing, pom-pom shaking Bikeride cheerleaders.”


POP MATTERS- “Fakin’ Amnesia is one of 2002’s best songs, really.”


COMFUSION- “Morning Macumba is one of the stangest, most uplifting album of the year.”

IN MUSIC WE TRUST- “Bikeride covers the pop spectrum, a vast undertaking, and somehow makes each song unique and different, while retaining the Bikeride ‘sound’ throughout. I’ll give it an A.”


THE BIG TAKEOVER- “Not everyone can be Brian Wilson or Phil Spector, regardless of how lofty their aspirations may be. So what is a would-be wall-of-sound popsmith to do? Maybe take a lesson or two from Long Beach, CA’s Bikeride.”


NEXTPLANETOVER- “For the past month I’ve been playing a cd by a band called Bikeride so often that my need to hear it probably qualifies as an addiction.”


AVERSION- “Unlike Beck, Fatboy Slim, or most of the other polyester-flag waving retro revivalists, Bikeride approaches its journeys into ‘70’s pop without the affected cooler-than-thou sense of kitsch marking the bulk of its contemporaries’ work.”


EYE- “Regardless of how many goodies the band tosses into the stew, what keeps it so succulent is the never-faltering earnestness of it all.”


SOUND AFFECTS- “What do you get when you throw every dazzling moment from the pop highlights reels of the last 35 years into a blender. Bikeride… If it’s at all possible to actually wear out a CD the way you could wear out the grooves of old LPs, then I’ll be in the market for a new copy of this disc very soon.”


EXCLAIM- “Carbone delivers his own State of the Suburban Union Address in Thirty-Seven Secrets, a frequently wonderful product of low-budget ingenuity and a big, soft heart.”


INDIE SCENE- “Tony Carbone’s voice pulls you in with its distinctive charm. Gutsy, flirty and vaguely childlike, he sounds like the boy version of Gwen Stefani… I can’t overstate the joyful vigor of this album. It’s smart, it’s fun, it’s sharp, it’s bodacious and it’s just a little bit sloppy. In other words, a perfect pop record.”


SPLENDID- “Morning Macumba’s most transcendently melodic moments seem like pure serendipity – one hundred percent luck, zero percent studio trickery. Their successes are exhilarating.”

JiffyPop

New sounds with a familiar flavor!
Bikeride's sound has definitely matured on this one. Darker and more varied but with the same great vocals and melodies that have time and again made them one of the most underrated indie bands out there. Check it out for yourself.

Pop master

Amazing!!! They did it again! BUY IT!!!
Bikeride conquers another set of pop genres with originality and expertise. They are truly the most underated band in the US! The Kiss is a sorely needed breath of fresh air and it is destined to become a classic.

Happy Sunday

Greatest Indie album of 2007!
Bought this CD on a whim and can't stop listening to it. It's seriously amazing. Better than the new Shins and Arcade Fire albums. There's something for everyone and if you love The Beatles, Bikeride will become your new favorite band. Not a filler track on this record!
