ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Songs that attempt to breathe fresh air in a sometimes otherwise stagnant room of rock music.....

What started as song writing sessions in the early months of 2004, between already established New England solo artists Kristin Clow and Ryan Sawyer, quickly became a musical marriage. It would also lead to the formation of what would be known as Down June.

Already prolific writers and multi-instrumentalists, the voices and styles of Ryan and Kris melded together with ease. A very short time later, Greg Capolino and Scott Rogers joined in, bringing with them their respective instruments of electric guitar and drums. After months of working on material and refining songs, they decided to record a self-produced album, with hired gun Sven Larson laying down bass. The recording process proved to be long and arduous, but the tension and attention to detail helped shape the record. Upon naming their debut album "Brookline" (the town where near countless hours were spent in the studio), and finding full-time bassist Dave Hanlon, the band known as Down June is ready to give their music to the world.

BIG guitar sounds flow throughout the songs, ranging from sweet & dreamy, to wide open & well crafted solos. Acoustic guitars are present in every song, keeping the music grounded with organic texture. Beautiful vocal harmonies grace every chorus with alternating male/female lead vocals. There are hooks that get stuck in the psyche of the listener, with songs that are dynamic, and hit the listener with everything from catchy pop melodies, to the angst and depression of a broken heart.

That seminal Boston band sound...like a darker Letters To Cleo.

Refreshing local music thats different that the usual boston scene.
Having heard solo material from local artists Ryan Sawyer and Kristin Clow before they were in a band together, i was curious to see how a collaboration between the two artists would sound. I was pleasantly surprised with the resulting Brookline album. The blending of the different music influences and styles keeps the album interesting and fun, the talent and diversity that each member of the band brings to the table makes Down June much more than your typical one trick pony Boston scene band. The fact that Down June is difficult to categorize and label as being a particualr type of rock band is part of their appeal. Not many bands can be successful (a la Fleetwood Mac)with multiple lead singers, but Sawyer and Clow sharing time on the mic works well. Songs like "Burning Away" and the trippy "Sea of You" have an almost dreamlike quality, the upbeat "Feeling It Too" has pop appeal. The vocals and lyrics on "More" are honest and dark, the emotional turmoil of the lyrics combined with the heavy guitar riffs of Capalino and the big voice of Clow make this my favorite song on the record.

This album is a must have, almost every song on the album leaves you wanting to hear more...is it too soon to hope for a second album?
