ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Los Angeles New Times "Critic's Choice" June 20-26, 2002

"All heart: With their self-released disc "Evaporation," Artichoke has done the impossible: They've gorged themselves on the Pavement/Pixies diet of '80s and '90s indie rock and managed to regurgitate a sound that doesn't suck. Frontman Timothy Sellers sings/talks with a laid-back Steve Malkmus monotone, and some of the guitar outros could've been plucked from Trompe le Monde, but the inspired songwriting avoids any been-there-done-that pitfalls. "I try to write songs about stuff no one's written about yet," says Sellers. That stuff includes everything from the construction of Noah's Ark to his own band's demise and "geek rock epitaph." It's infectious indie pop throughout and though nearly an hour in length, the disc doesn't drag. A frequent request on KXLU 88.9FM, they had kids sitting cross-legged and transfixed at that station's recent Fundrazor show at the Knitting Factory. And now booker/curator Mike TV has made them a welcome fixture at his Launchpad East the last Tuesday of every month at Mr. T's Bowl." -Bob Powers

Evaporation
This album rocks. It's in heavy rotation in my car CD changer. It's also funny as hell. Timothy rules. A fountain of creativity.

This album is fast and fun in the begining, swoops into bleak and rises back to enjoyable cynicism with daring angularity. A real treat for those of us with no sense of purpose but a disposition for activity.

From the opener on this cd is a must have if you are a fan of indie-ish pop,the vocals are perfect for this style of music and everything else is equally accomplished,the second half of the disc may not be as consistently brilliant as the first but with standards this high Artichoke can be very happy with this offering and I for one look forward to the next.

Who needs songs about love when you can listen to songs about Sea Monkeys and Noah's Ark? Great music, intelligent lyrics. Highly recommended.
