Album Notes
Portland's, Defender (Dustin Spillman), is an electro-ambient-rock culmination that sounds like purity and chaos colliding. Its a beautiful mess! Its what music should be. Its emotive, honest, and exploratory.

On songs like, Everytime I Fall, Spillman utilizes beautiful space, electronic beats, and a haunting female vocal that is reminiscent of My Brightest Diamond. A couple tracks later on, The Last Memory of Man, Spillman uses a midtempo soundscape and electronics to drive home a sound ready for any post-apocylaptic scene. Danger on the Bridge has a darker, more ominous sound to it. With distorted spoken words mixed amongst the heavy beat-driven song, Danger on the Bridge succeeds in every way, with a sound much like AptCore.

Spillman clearly has what it takes. He's forward thinking in every way and composes truly chaotic beauty!

RATING: 5 of 5 stars (Awaken Music 2009)

“A colossal, sonically-driven machine dripping with emotion.”

Russell C.

Defender does it right
Wow, this is a very original and innovative album. I really dig the sound and mood to this entire album. Anyone heard the new EP by Defender? Thinking about getting it as well after hearing this.


One of the best
This is one of the best cds I got from cdbaby so far

i've been going through the electronic category on here all day and this is the first album that's held my attention. i've been listening to "IDM" for over a decade and i'm not bored by this. needs more singing

Defender is a perfect mix of glitchy-electro-vocal-laden-funk.

Brittany Buchanan

This is a very innovative album. It rare to find this level of passion in a electronic record. I'm in love with "Everytime I Fall". It's a really great song with a extremely catchy melody.I hope more people find this record.
