ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bridges and Powerlines trace their lineage to the summer of 2005, when lead singer/keyboardist Andrew Wood and bassist Keith Sigel discovered a common interest: creating power pop skewed by the angular lens of New York.

Andrew, a veteran of the New York City music scene, and Keith, a recent migrant from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, found that their collaborative songwriting was cohesive and decided to find more musicians to realize their musical ambitions. A furtive search revealed drummer Pete Mucek and guitarist Jon Crockett, and their subsequent collaboration has born fruit. Since their inception, the four have written songs incorporating the pop sensibility of Spoon, the rousing melodrama of Interpol, and sharp, catchy guitar lines akin to Thunderbirds are Now! What has evolved out of their efforts is an experimental mix of guitars, synths, vocal harmonies, and arrangements in the exploratory rock vein of David Bowie and Guided by Voices.

Their debut CD was recorded at Headgear Studios in Williamsburg (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Son Volt, TV on the Radio). The tracks have received praise from major blogs ('an exhilarating racket' [sixeyes], 'RIYL: thunderbirds are now, the futureheads' [youaintnopicasso]). Over the summer of 2006, the EP made top 30 charts at several radio stations around the country, including core CMJ stations WUSC (University of South Carolina), KTSW (Southwest Texas State University), KCUR (Kansas City, MO) and WTSR (The College of New Jersey).

Good new band, sounds like we are scientists
Good start wish that they put more effort into the second and fourth track but still enjoyed the whole album. My favourite track would probably be carmen. Pick up this cd if your into we are scientists, the strokes or the cribbs
