Album Notes
Captivating audiences from Connecticut to Florida with charisma, passion and energy, Angwish emerges as the Carolinas' hottest alternative rock band. Their influences include Nirvana, The Pixies, The Beatles, REM, Local H, etc. However, the band's diverse musical tastes and background have enabled them to forge an unmistakably unique sound.

Together, songwriter and front-man Bryan Bielanski (guitar, vocals), Rachael Malmberg (bass, vocals) and Paul Robinson (drums) create the band's contagious sound described by many (including their producer, Rob Tavaglione) as hook-oriented indie rock with tendencies towards power-pop, hard rock, punk and grunge.

Angwish is undeniably one of the most dedicated and determined bands to come out of the southeastern United States. They have many accomplishments under their belt including:

A sponsorship from Sam Asm music store (a national chain)
Songs appearing in Austrian Red Bull advertisements
Signing with Charleston, SC based indie label, Street Records (ran by Tasos of Eurogression and Ocean Tribe)
Two full-length CD's engineered by Tracy Schroeder (Local H)
Two self-released EP's
Touring the east coast several times (Atlanta, Athens, Philadelphia, Nashville, Cleveland, Atlantic City, Pittsburgh, Hartford)
2004 saw the end of Street Records and in early 2006 the band self-released their latest EP, "All the Problems". Angwish has finished recording their third full length CD and are planning a US tour for fall 2007. They are searching for a label with like-minded artisitic sensibilities that shares their ambition and drive to succeed through hard work and relentless efforts.

Great songs and great harmonies from this versatile rock band
This band reminds me of the Pixies with a more modern edge; sometimes sweet, often a little sour, theirs is a smirky power-pop. They bounce from modern, to indie, to a post-grunge rock, all laced with powerful hooks and consistently nice harmonizing. In fact, its the guy/girl vocal harmonies that really make this record.

"Throw a Party" starts things off with a super-catchy, indie rock sound. "At Last" finds the band in pure power-pop mode, full of harmony and romantic sincerity. Not all is light though, as the band kicks into a darker crunch on the heavier "And Now" and "Impossible". The CD ends with a powerhouse, the moody rocker "Sad Again"(which segues into a chaotic punk ending "Gouge Out").

This record has a very nice sound overall; warm, well balanced and quite organic sounding. It doesn't come off as all over produced, you can close your eyes and picture the band rocking out together. If you like honest rock, with some nice variety and great singing you'll be glad you bought this record.
