ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Karmic Brick is a Boston, MA based Alternative Rock band that doesn't copy anyone. Their unique, upbeat style is a refreshing change from the norm."- Xena Xeon, www.musicplaces.com

The unique sound of Karmic Brick sparked attention almost immediately upon introducing themselves to the internet indie music community in early 2004. The band built a broad and devoted international fan base by unleashing only a taste of what was to come from their debut album, The Unnatural World. The four tracks released, “Pain,” “High,” “Amber Jesus,” and “Experience Jones,” yielded over 10,000 plays on www.soundclick.com in only six months, which also propelled “Pain” to an impressive two-week stay at #1 on the Soundclick.com Grunge Chart.

When The Unnatural World was finally released in October 2004, critics validated what fans already knew and Karmic Brick's originality began attracting industry attention.

Said Colin Lynch of International Online Music Magazine, "the album is immersed in grunge... clever grunge that is, and vocals that go up the walls, around the radiators, across the ceiling and straight down the back of your neck when you least expect them to. This is where Karmic Brick's innovation becomes the icing on the cake along with accomplished songwriting and expert arrangements... it's all totally unpredictable folks...an astonishingly clever album from astonishingly innovative boundary bending writers and musicians."

Australia's The Buzz Magazine concurred citing "Walking In My Mind" and "Amber Jesus," in particular, as "a wildfire of artistic expression."

Such strong reviews have helped to propel Karmic Brick’s music further and the band can now be heard on a number of internet radio stations, such as www.artistlaunch.com, www.scrubradio.com, www.freeworldradio.com, and www.soundclick.com. They have also been played on a number of college and commercial stations.

Additionally, The Unnatural World has been in the running for a number of awards. The band received an International Online Music Award nomination for their cover design and, most recently, was one of five bands nominated for the International Online Music Magazine's "Artist of the Year" award.
In addition to these nominations, The Unnatural World drummer Jim LaPrad took top honors in one catagory when he won the IOMA for "Best Drummer."

In April of 2005, Karmic Brick went into the New York studios of Superego Productions and recorded a new track with producer Chris Young. That track, "You Love Me," has received glowing reviews and has been selected for airplay on the Artistlaunch Hour, a syndicated broadcast radio show that is heard on FM stations in five countries. It has also attracted the attention of Matchbox Recordings, a UK label who will be promoting and distributing the song in Europe.

In 2005 Karmic Brick was selected for inclusion in the Worldwide Online Music Distribution Association (WOMDA), a collective alliance representing the interests of the world's most innovative independent artists, record labels, and digital music providers and distributors, in recognition of their success.

In December 2005 Jim LaPrad scored his second-straight nomination for Best Drummer and Erin Ahearn received a nomination for Best Female Vocal in the 2006 International Online Music Awards.

Karmic Brick is currently at work on a follow-up album and fans and critics alike are anxious to hear
what Karmic Brick will unleash the second time around.



Karmic Brick is:

Jim LaPrad (vocals, guitar, drums)
Erin Ahearn (vocals, guitar)

Ed Drury

Jeff Airplane in 2005
"I'm so high", perfectly captures the feeling of listening to this rockin' CD by Karmic Brick. With masterful songwriting, soaring vocals, raging drums and rippin' guitars Karmic Brick recalls a time when Jefferson Airplane burst on the scene on the west coast and changed the forumla. Like when the Pretenders mesmorized us with the power of female vocal RAWK.
This album is fresh if not entirely wholesome. It's primoridal and real. Like putting on someone else's eye glass prescription, everything looks different after you hear it. The honesty of the songs, at times startling, is delivered in a uniquely Karmic way. A band with a signature sound? How refreshing is that? Definitely one of my best buys on CD Baby! There is a suprise in every track as Karmic Brick remains balanced and tight, they also trip the listener with clever twists and unexpected turns.
