ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"As a rule, I try not to obsess over band names. However, this one seems quite fitting of the musical melange. Digital Antique summons a sophisticated palate marrying a melodramatic classical approach with progressive pacing. However, simply comparing it to prog rock or dubbing it “rock opera” would be a tad limiting. Those boundaries are broken through by – and really, there’s no other way of putting this – their strangeness. Odd? Yes. Fascinating? Absolutely. Which is why they’re worth checking out.

"Digital Antique conjures a similar aesthetic. The local trio employs a revolving string quartet and prefers the cleaner, more sophisticated realm of classical music. The group's eponymous debut unfolds with impressive patience and grace, leaning closer to the cinematic expressionism of My Education than Balmorhea's West Texas landscapes. "Taj Mahaal Monkees" showcases Antique's knack for unexpected right turns."

"Eclectic debut from Texas Experimentalists- Digital Antique are to general Texas americana what Soft Machine are to Britpop, but to persevere is to prosper and like all good instrumental music this grows on you. In their own words Digital Antique mix progressive, classical and indie, a curious recipe which when added in certain quantities to the great blender of the studio has produced a result which although at first too subtle for some palates, becomes an acquired taste before very long. Anything goes in liberal Austin and that is certainly true for this trio and their supporting cast on strings. Their dark, delicate and cultured flavours against a backdrop of visually stimulating images is enlightened musical theatre and set tongues wagging after an impressive performance at September's Utopia festival. Maton's Song then entered the international top 100 so watch this space and remember, this isn't for everyone but give it a chance and you will be rewarded. "

"Indie-Music.com Editors Pick! Are Digital Antique strange? Yes. But are they also interesting? Yes. And so it is with this odd trio of Travis Kennedy and James Parker Randolph, who met while studying music at South Plains College. Payton Holekamp on drums, has recently joined the project, expanding the sound palette. It's a bit difficult to describe the music here, but it's very mellow, creepy and atmospheric. A lot of strings, faint guitars, and slow building mood music. There's definitely a Prog Rock influence here, but more from the European and German side of things. A piece like "Meton's Cycle" could have no problem being in the score of a not particularly happy film. There are also some surprising tempo changes, especially at the 4:30 mark of "Meton's Cycle". A fan of anything from Can to King Crimson to Mogwai will truly get some eerie pleasure with Digital Antique. Highly recommended. "
