ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ABOUT HYPNOGAJA (pronounced hip-nō-gä-zhä):

Described by Outburn magazine as "enthralling, first-rate modern rock," Apple.com as "soulful rock with a subtle electronic backdrop" and the Denver Post as music that "pushes boundaries," Hypnogaja writes and performs "melodic, sophisticated songs that cater to no trend” according to GRAMMY®-nominated songwriter Wendy Waldman (Garth Brooks, Vanessa Williams), producer of the band’s critically acclaimed album, Acoustic Sunset – Live at the Longhouse.

Winner of the 2009 Hollywood Music in Media Award for Best Alternative Artist, Hypnogaja is comprised of vocalist Jason “ShyBoy” Arnold, keyboardist Mark Nubar Donikian, guitarists Jeeve Ducornet and Abe Parker, drummer Adrian Barnardo and bassist Bryan Farrar.

Truth Decay, Hypnogaja’s new studio LP, is a concept recording hailed by Outburn as an "expertly crafted album." All thirteen songs from the project revolve around the central story of two lovers – a scientist and a spaceman – who find themselves at the center of a dramatic apocalypse. From the opening chords of the ominous rocker “Dark Star” to the retro-shuffle of the celebrity-obsessed “Worship Me (I’m On TV)” and the warm piano-driven motif of the eternally hopeful “Welcome To The Future,” Truth Decay manages to deliver an engaging science-fiction-romance-fantasy story arc without losing its vantage point on universal themes that unite us all.

The Southern California-based sextet has reached worldwide audiences through its ubiquitous presence on the Internet and by extensively touring throughout the U.S. and Canada (opening for artists such as Shinedown, Saliva, 311, Cold and many others). 2010 promises to be a noteworthy year for Hypnogaja, fueled by several new releases (including a digital single of the band’s cover of the Donna Summer classic, “On The Radio”) and an appearance at South By Southwest.

Numerous television shows, motion pictures, video games and soundtracks have featured Hypnogaja's music, including America’s Next Top Model (CW), Carrie (NBC), Cold Creek Manor (Touchstone), Dirt (F/X), FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage (Warner Bros. Interactive), Las Vegas (NBC), One Life To Live (ABC), Roswell (WB), Sex And The City (HBO), The Looking Glass Wars (Scholastic), Tru Calling (FOX), Valentine (Warner Bros.), and many others. Hypnogaja frontman, ShyBoy, is featured on two songs on the Sony soundtrack for the Capcom video game, The Devil May Cry 4.

Truth Decay is available on iTunes®, Amazon.com, CDBaby, at all Amoeba Music locations and through online retailers worldwide. For more information, please visit hypnogaja.com.

All Access Magazine- Susie Salva

The songs while somewhat melancholy have interesting textures and haunting melod
Hypnogaja, Hollywood based quartet, displays an interesting mix of classical and modern rock music. Their songs are moody and their compelling style of music offers a porthole into their lyrics, which explores the many facets of faltering relationships. Hypnogaja’s new CD, “Acoustic Sunset – Live at the Longhouse” on Union State/Longhouse Records, was produced by legendary singer/songwriter Wendy Waldman (Fishin In the Dark, Save the Best for Last) and recorded and mixed by veteran engineer Michael Boshears (Black Flag, Onigo Boingo).
“Acoustic Sunset,” contains 12 stripped down performances recorded live in Encino, California, plus a brand new studio track, “I’m Not One of You.” The band is comprised of Jason Arnold (Shyboy) vocals, Mark Nubar Donikian, piano, keyboards, Jeeve, guitar, bass, Tim Groeschel, guitar, bass, Adrian Barnardo, drums and percussion.
The songs while somewhat melancholy have interesting textures and haunting melodies. The band invites you into their arena with accessible lyrics and daring arrangements.
“Misery,” the first track sounds like a lullaby (not to be confused with their song “Lullaby”), which explores the pain in a relationship where one partner is feeling miserable and can’t stand the sight of the other one.
Hypnogaja does a searing rendition of the Eurythmics “Here Comes the Rain Again,” reminiscent of Marilyn Manson’s take on a Eurythmic song. The tune is a fine example of their modern rocks roots. It’s very engaging and draws you into their realm.
“Looking Glass,” uses the analogy of Alice In Wonderland giving you the feeling that you yourself have fallen into the rabbit hole. It makes reference to the Cheshire cat and the Mad Hatter as well as Alice herself. It’s a fun track and appealing lyrically.
“They Don’t Care,” delves into the situation where people say things that are hurtful but they just don’t care if they hurt your feelings. The song has nice guitar rhythms.
“I’m Not One of You,” explores the notion of a couple that no longer see eye to eye with each other. It is beautiful musically and the guitars are interesting. This song reveals the sensitive side to their music.
“Outside Looking In,” begins with a delightful piano intro which again looks at a failing relationship that seems to be a common thread throughout this disc. The song has lovely vocals.
Hypnogaja takes their name from the hazy-dreamlike state wakefulness and sleep known in psychological circles as hypnagogia. Their music too has a dreamy quality to their songs with memorable melodies and intense lyrics. The band displays both modern hard rock with sweet acoustic melodies.

Bookman

This is a rocking acoustic set.
Hypnogaja follows up the stellar BELOW SUNSET album with ACOUSTIC SUNSET - LIVE AT THE LONGHOUSE, a live set that recasts the band's songs in an acoustic setting, revealing the intricately crafted workings that lie behind Hypnogaja's hard rocking exterior. Produced by acoustic legend Wendy Waldman, the album contains stellar renditions of the tracks, "Scorned," "Nothing Left To Give," "Misery," "Looking Glass" and the Eurythmics cover "Here Comes The Rain Again." A new studio bonus track, "I'm Not One Of You," closes out the CD. It's a powerful song about individuality and renders this a not-to-be-missed album. Check it out!
