Looking for Landmarks

by Two Loons for Tea

Like a multi-colored sky alternating between little fluffy clouds & thunderheads drifting over the seas of pop eclecticism; think Bjork / Tori Amos / U2.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Reviews of "Looking for Landmarks":

"a cinematic, ethereal and sensual musical journey"
-- Music Connection, Los Angeles

"All that can be sensual, mysterious, and sexy about pop
music is found in this album... expertly executed...
flawless, organic production. And despite the album's
smarts and complexity it's as accessible as anything on
the radio today... Like any album that pioneers a new path,
Landmarks is difficult to pigeonhole, yet is, at the same
time, strangely familiar and completely infectious.

Pop hasn't seen anything this sophisticated since The
Police's "Synchronicity" - Amazon.com

"Looking for Landmarks" is another pristine and intricate
collection of soulful alternative rock [from Two Loons
for Tea]. The songwriting, while melodic and memorable,
also addresses a wide array of musical styles from ambient
to funk. Scott's clear voice often sounds something like
The Sundays' Harriet Wheeler on a serious Marvin Gaye jag.
Complimenting this is Kochmer's guitar and keyboards which
have as much in common with Sam Prekop as The Cocteau Twins'
Robin Guthrie. All in all, Landmarks pushes the boundaries
of adult-alternative pop and should please those looking
for something better than the norm." - All Music Guide

"...a paragon of maturity in a world of live-for-the-moment
pop songsters... Rock takes a chill pill & puts on its
thinking cap." -- Live365.com

"Layered with sound, powerfully guitar-based with Jonathan
Kochmer's compositions, and bound together with Sarah
Scott's yearning raspy-honey voice, this album is a wonder,
a sophomore album that plays on all the strengths of their
first album. The tunes and lyrics are catchy; the production
is rich and detailed but never cluttered. Each song is
individual but adds up to a whole--an album to listen to
obsessively." -- Ectophile's Guide to Good Music

"The title track 'Looking for Landmarks' is soothing and
makes me want to close my eyes and slow dance while holding
a martini in one hand and a cigarette in the other... 'Blue
Suit' stands out not only because it's a little different
from others on the disc but it's also a very catchy 'radio
friendly' song...This is great mood music, if the mood you're
trying to set is swoonful and sexy..." -- Collected Sounds

"...as moody as it is sweet and as sexy as it is delicate...
If you've been looking for something that will put some
magic in the room (and in your heart) we recommend you drink
this special blend of Tea." -- Girlmedia

"Led by two vivacious musicians, Jonathan Kochmer and Sarah
Scott, Two Loons For Tea is an eclectic, diverse band of
artists whose music plays like a five-foot roman candle. At
the start of their latest album, they immediately flare with
an intense and potential-energy-fueled (yet calming) song
entitled "Blue Suit". Then sparks really start to fly as the
title track "Looking For Landmarks" blazes up and there's no
doubt -- the trance has begun. The album is filled with
ember-bright glances and stretches of darkly seasoned
calmed-down time that kinetically force anticipation for the
next glittery climax... Beautiful arrangements deeply-seated
against lush, soothing, and solid vocals work intimately
together in forming the perfect blend of jazz-influenced
inspiration, feathered with a left-of-center modern-popish
undertone. BEEutimous music!" -- MediaPlus Magazine

A great cup of tea!
Very clever and original. The song "Blue Suit" is a real stand out but the whole album is very enjoyable.

Doug

Wayyyy cool CD
Just bought this recently and keep playing it over and over on my iPod. The lyrics take you away, Sarah's voice is delicious and the instruments flow so well. A masterfully produced CD. There isn't a bad tune on it...which I can't say for most of my collection.

I can't wait till their next CD comes out in a few months.

YOUR CUP OF TEA!
Two Loons For Tea is back and improving on the stregnths of their first outing with "Looking For Landmarks". With rich, full instrumentation, catchy melodies and beautiful vocals, the Loons have carefully produced an album equally enhanced by bright freshness and deep soulfulness. Vocalist Sarah Scott and multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Kochmer are joined here by an A-list roster of musicians who've earned their stripes with such acts as Fiona Apple, Tori Amos, Macy Gray, Elton John, King Crimson and many more, but the songs are never overshadowed by show-boating. The guests elegantly weave into the musical cloth, building its strength. This is classy album that shuns labeling and is not to be missed. Look for it on many end of the year 'best of' lists.
