Album Notes
On their new album Eternal, releasing independently on August 2nd, 2011, Karmacoda explores everything from their quintessential sound of heavy bass lines (as heard on the track “If You Give It To Me”) to jazz, 70s funk and 60s soul (“Into Each Life”), to traditional ambient and electronica mixed with hip hop, pop and rock that’s so unexpected it’s as if Dr. Dre hooked up with Fleetwood Mac (“Get Me Through Another Lonely Night”).

Eternal follows Karmacoda’s successful 2007 release Illuminate and marks the band’s sixth release and fourth original album. It was recorded in San Francisco at both “The Briefing Room,” the bands large personal rehearsal space and recording studio located on Treasure Island where the band recorded drums, bass, guitar and other louder parts, and at “The Amsterdam Room,” Crockett’s home studio where they did overdubs, tracked vocals and all mixing. In addition to Brett Crockett, Eric Matsuno, and Karmacoda’s lead vocalist Heather Pierce, Eternal features many additional musicians including some of San Francisco’s best like Paul Johnson (guitar), Andy Korn (drums), Paul Dorr (jazz piano), Eamonn Flynn (keyboard), Cheri Chuang (keyboard, vocals), Anji Bee (vocals) and Beth Hirsch (vocals). The album was mastered by Andy VanDette (Metric, David Bowie) at Masterdisk in New York City.

At their core, Karmacoda is about thought-provoking lyrics over hooky melodies, carried out by gorgeous, rangy, male and female vocals that add a tremendous amount of dimension. “We really make the music that we want to. We don’t write music to be trendy; it’s modern and genuine,” says lead female vocalist Heather Pierce. Fans of Portishead, Massive Attack, Tricky, Imogen Heap, Radiohead, Air, and Zero 7 will likely be drawn to Karmacoda’s DJ and producer-oriented construction with real world-class musicianship. “Everyone in the band is ‘best of breed,’” says Matsuno.

discovered this band on Pandora on my downtempo mix. (love that Pandora for discovering new bands)

Wow, I am loving their music. I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere they produce. I like that is so listenable because of the great hooks, which got me on the first listen, but it also has a depth that has me enjoying to the tunes several times: I'm still finding details both up front and in the background that keeps me going back for another listen.

This is one of those rare albums that has so much to like about it on the first listen: For instance, this would make a great cocktail-party, or romantic evening album, but is also has the intensity that can capture my full attention with it's deep mix.

I look forward to downloading the rest of Karmacoda's albums, but I'm just not done listening to this one just yet! It's great to discover such a great sound with a catalog to keep me going for quite some time.

Bravo Karmacoda!
