Album Notes
People On Planes Singing Airport Songs is the full length debut from the Brooklyn-based JP05. The album itself (as well as the band) is a both a truly and deceptively solo effort from songwriter Jeff Patlingrao, who recorded, mixed, and played all the instruments on the album. The result is about 40 minutes of richly textured, sonically diverse, and somewhat understated rock anthems that lyrically seem to center around a theme of leaving and arriving. "It's about drastic transition, losing friends, and keeping love. Or attempting to." says Jeff Patlingrao.

From the opening distorted drum beat of "almost no one", the intimate tragedy of "searching the coast" and "everything you'll see"; to the full-on jump/skip rhythm of "happyendingman" (including a most excellent whammy bar bridge part) and the dynamically polar epic of "her face", JP05 immediately displays its vast range of sonic tools, both technical and emotional. This only continues to build in the second half of the album with the intense "sad song" and winsome oddity of "halo slingshot"; not to mention the determined march of "faded blind + paper thin" and explosive requiem for elliott smith:"from then on", finally leaving us with the rare sound of Los Angeles rain behind the hopeful "not so far". The album only disappoints when it's over, leaving the listener wanting more.

"Loud. Quiet. Steady. Fierce." is the ever constant group of words that the band uses to describe itself. In comparative terms, you might think Elliott Smith meets Sonic Youth meets "Execution..." era Rilo Kiley. There have also been mentions of someone named Hendrix linked to describing JP05's comet-blasting live show.
