Rock&Roll Machine

by Slender Means

Think the Smiths meets the Shins with some of the best indie-rock pop tunes this year. A voice as powerfully beautiful as Dawson's is rare.

Album Notes
“Slender Means have an indie-pop grand slam on their hands … Pulling from Elvis Costello, Cheap Trick, the Strokes, and Supergrass, almost every song is aimed at getting kids beaming in their headphones.” – The Stranger

Slnder Means have a powerful and sophisticated ep, as passionate as it is rocking. Dawson’s voice – equal parts Morrissey and Bono – delivers his soulful lyrics with convincing brash and bravado.” – MSN

“Crisp laments full of delicately interlaced guitars that move at surprisingly jaunty tempos. Think the Smiths or Chameleons U.K. Dawson's accomplished vocals have matured to perfection: He has a way of snagging common 1980s melodies and repurposing them to his own ends.” – Seattle Post-Intelligencer

“This Seattle band debuts with an amazingly accomplished album of indie-pop perfection. Every single song is spiked with memorable hooks … In a year of great Northwest releases, this is one of the best.” --

“Imagine a perfect melding of The Strokes and Travis with a bit of Rooney thrown in. Lots of killer melodies and gorgeous instrumentation and cool harmonies … Every year people are looking for a band in the Northwest that will be as big as The Shins. I think we have a winner here.” –

“This Seattle quintet is absolutely gimmick-free, dedicated to churning out the kind of passionate, heartfelt rock that bands like Big Star and the Replacements did in the pre-eyeliner eras.” – Stranded In Stereo
