ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Puracane began as a duo in 1999. Vocalist Ali Rogers and producer David Biegel co-wrote the album 'Things you should leave alone', released by Ubiquity records in 2000.
Ali Rogers decided to take the project from the studio to a live act and in 2000 Puracane played shows with Sting and Duran Duran and in 2001 with Jane's Addiction and Depeche Mode. Puracane's music featured in the film Driven and the TV shows Felicity, Smallville, Las Vegas, Road Rules and Real World.

Today Puracane are Ali Rogers on vocals, Juan Masotta on guitar and electronics, Drew Thurlow on bass and Andrew Griffiths on drums.
The new album "I've Been Here The Longest" will be made available June 2009 NOT on CD Baby.

I can't even say how excited I am for Puracane to have released a new album. I had been waiting quite a while for this, and now that it's here, I can barely stop listening to it. It is a beautifully composed album that truly moves me. It is a bit darker and moodier than "things you should leave alone" which in my opinion is a good thing, as I tend to be more attracted to this kind of music. Ali has one of the most amazing voices out there. This is a very powerful second release, and well worth the purchase.

Easily the best electronic/trip hop album on CD Baby
Puracane puts out another great album. This one a composite of their last few years of exquisite work. Couldn't have been a better follow-up album, and to think they are working on new material! Can't wait for it. If you like trip hop/electronic music this is a must. Can't really compare it to anyone else since it's...well, Puracane.

In Limbo between avante-garde pop and trip-hop
The following review addresses the MUSICAL EXPERIENCE only. As I find lyrics often difficult to hear and correctly understand, I will not address them below.

If you're expecting another "Things You Should Leave Alone," turn back now, because this isn't it. But if you like your music to be adventurous, read on, because you're in for a real treat.

With their 2nd major release, In Limbo, Puracane gracefully smashes the boundaries of their old style and flutters somewhere between the realms of Hungry Lucy, Lamb, Esthero, Kidneythieves, and even

The opening track, 7 Seconds, sets the pace for what follows. Soft, velvet vocals, orchestral backdrops, and the classic drum & bass combine with a modern synthesized feel that reminds one of Hungry Lucy's gothic vocal work, while the additional elements clearly establish a niche that Puracane masters yet again.

Sand really strikes me as the most representative track of this new sound for Puracane. It is simultaneously relaxed while up-tempo enough to satisfy fans of Kidneythieves and Flunk, respectively.

Warzone is perhaps the only track that really harkens back to "Things You Should Leave Alone." It is more upbeat than the other tracks, and the slightly distorted mic-effects wrap a post-modern envelope to the experience. Ali's gorgeous voice seems to almost channel Nina Persson of The Cardigans and Anja Øyen Vister of Flunk.

Shouldn't Be Here opens with a spatial dimension best characterized by ambient act Starcraft. It is by this point in the album that you realize Puracane has completely departed from their original style. The entire focus of the album feels completely different.
On a few side notes, Juan Masotta's guitar and synth really shine on Worst Side, while Brett O'Mara's violin takes on a truly etheral quality in Dogs, unlike anything I've heard before.

With In Limbo, Puracane deftly crafts a work of art. This is what this kind of music is meant to be: an intimate journey. It will be very interesting to see what the band has in store for us in the future, considering this album was produced by "satellite" members during a hiatus.

I can only hope that for the next release, Puracane continues to push forward and develop something as unique and wonderful as this album.

Very nice indeed...
I'm really enjoing this album after first discovering it here at CD Baby! Ali Rogers has a great voice, and the vocals sit nicely on top of interesting, original; and varied electronics and instrumentation. Highlights for me include Sand, Warzone, Dogs, Everything & HAL9000. Highly recommended.
