ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Drawing inspiration from a wide variety of musical styles, the harvest boys blend neo pop songs with big beat aggressive slam rock; tornado alley hiphop with new wave grunge. They owe as much to joe cocker and nirvana as they do to beck and the b52's. The band performs with an unparallel through the roof raw energy, wowing crowds time and time again.

The foundation for the group was built in the winter of 2002 when former high school classmates Bobby Cahill and Tommy Moore ran into each other at the Temple University trainstation in Philadelphia. As another pair of high school friends; drummer Chris Wood, and multi-instrumentalist Frank Ewing entered the mix, it was clear that a fabulous chemistry was in existence, and that the group was something that should be pursued and taken to high heights.

The harvest has played over 400 shows since their return to the East Coast in 2006. They have established themselves as one of Philadelphia's premier rock acts with neighborhood shows packed with a wide variety of fans. Their single "Hurry Before Worry" was part of popular radio DJ, ‘Jaxon's 93.3 WMMR Local Shots series’, and received generous airplay throughout the region. 88.5 WXPN aswell, have played their music and named them their featured local artist on several occasions. Half a dozen other songs continue to be played on college radio stations throughout the U.S. and Canada. The group has won national accolades as well, most recently winning Ralph Lauren’s “RalphRocks” music video contest.

Their second LP "Golden Dragon" was released in July 2007. Critics have described their sophomore album as “a warm agressive adventure through the past musical decades, a matte start and a glossy finish", with "such versatility it listens as more of a Mixtape rather than one band's album."

Downtown Harvests second LP "Golden Dragon" was born in July 2007. The band describes their new release as more persuasive and inventive than the first album, with a taste of red curry spice that touches upon the foundations of rock, grunge, dance, hip hop and drum and bass." Inspired by their favorite hometown Chinese restaurant, the CD itself is quite the novelty with its linear notes reading entirely like an ethnic Chinese cuisine menu.

An amazing fusion of rock and powerpop that is sure to blow you away.
Golden Dragon has exceeded any expetations I might have had. The creative fusion of rock with various instruments such as keyboards and saxaphone, bring the album to a whole new level. Songs like Four Hundo and Full Circle give the feeling of a live show right in my car/home. By far one of the most original albums of the year.

The new Downtown Harvest CD, Golden Dragon, has many flavors of music with every song. Each song had a specific type of rhythm, melodies, and words. Still every song gives many feelings that are beyond satisfied.

Oozing of Talent
For a sophomore album, Golden Dragon doesn't let you down. It keeps with the first album's music. Downtown Harvest is amazing at attempting (and being successful) in many areas of music. No two songs are alike for these guys. Fried Shrimp has a funky rap sound while Napier has rock music with slight screamo appearance in the middle. These guys are in a league of thier own; I'd definately recommend this album to anyone who likes variety and talent. Start off with Sinner, Napier, and Clockwork Tangerines (my personal favorite) to get a taste.

love it, LOVE IT!!
This CD is so great. Not a bad song on it. There are so many different sounds on this album and will be enjoyed by all ages. I highly recommend it.

Year of the Golden Dragon
They usually say that the Sophomore jinx happens to just about every artist, but not in DTH's case. This albums is an animated departure from their debut self titled album. It's a mystery to me why this band hasn't made a music video or have been on t.v. yet. They need to be heard by everyone. This CD is so sick.

Songs To Note:

Killer Queen Bee
Something Elephants
Michael Jordan
SHRIMP FRIED!!!
Clockwork Tangerines

This CD is delicious musical candy for the ears.

It seems like DTH is a completely original group doing what no one has ever done before. I really appreciate their originality and technical skill. I can pick out influences from funk, jazz, electronica, rock, and hip hop. Great band.

If you like people like bands like beck, cake, wilco, etc. then you will enjoy them for sure.

This is some of the best money I've ever spent.

Best wishes

The Harvest tighten up their sound and their chop on the followup
Right off the bat you can tell these guys mean business with this record and considered this a mean challenge after their wicked debut. If they were trying to top the debut in terms of sheer attitude I'd say they've done it and then some. I'm not saying this record is better, but it does channel the inner rage captured in the previous cd more effectively over the course of the entire album, whereas the first record only had its moments. Once again, this isn't good or bad because the laid back vibe of the first record was very welcome and sets it apart from this. If anything, these guys haven't repeated themselves while staying true to their sound and selves. I guess it sounds like they're showing off in a very classy way here, and I like that. They are one of the few groups who can do this and not sound cocky or smarmy in the process, quite a mean feat.

I haven't heard an original sound like Downtown Harvest's in a long time and I c
Downtown Harvest's CD is something I look foward to when I listen to music. It's originality and diversity makes me want to play it over and over again in my car. The song Killer Queen Bee and Something Elphants have been stuck in my head for days. All I know is that I need to see these guys tear it up live immediatly.
