ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
BRIGHT SIDE FANTASY IS A CDBABY EDITOR'S TOP PICK! THANKS CDBABY! Read below to see what they think of the album.

The Micah Walk Band's approach to music is subtly hinted at in their own name: simple and to the point. Nostalgic songwriting that brings about feelings of home and family, love and relationships, and those hard-learned mistakes is the first attraction to Micah Walk. Each song tends to float in your head after you first hear it, creating the sense that the song has always been there. Walk's personal epitaphs are voiced with passionate authority and carefully supported by the other band members' playing. All former college roommates, guitarist John Cardoni, drummer Darin Holthaus and bassist Dan Hartman have a keen awareness of each other that helps elevate the intensity and excitement of any performance.

Since forming in 2005, the band has developed a growing sense of knowing how to say the most by playing the least. That of itself is a philosophy that has always stood the test of time, if done just right. It's a never-ending goal, both personal and within the group. The Micah Walk Band isn't striving to be progressive; they would prefer to concentrate of how to play something, rather than what to play. This outlook on music is evident throughout their recently self-recorded and self-produced album titled Bright Side Fantasy, which was independently released in July 2008.

Peters at CD Baby


The polished, slightly melancholy sound of \"Bright Side Fantasy\" begins with the enchanting, well-crafted ballad \"Goodbye Austin\", which is enough to make anyone stop and listen. But the tightly rhythmic pop rock of \"Come On Mary\" is something sure to get stuck in your head and make you come back to listen again and again. Seriously. It\'s a catchy, highly melodic tune and it still rocks your ass; it wouldn\'t sound out of place on Wilco\'s \"Summerteeth\". Walk\'s vocals are really great: strong and clear, yet with a hint of the grit that makes Ryan Adams\' voice so alluring. However, the band is quite good in their own right. Every song has tightly crafted accents and nuances that draw you in and keep you interested. The lead guitar work is especially intriguing, like on the solo for \"Above Water\", or the subtle lead part of \"Late Nights\". To cap it all off, this album was self-produced, which is really cool, because the album sounds amazing and totally professional. The Micah Walk Band\'s songs have a way of weaving themselves into your subconscious, so you\'ll find yourself singing them days later and not even realize how they got there. This is a wonderful album from a band that\'s destined for greatness.

Must buy
Great begin and then it slows a bit down, nice for a sunday. But an overall good cd.
