11 bands completely disrespect classic songs by The Police. You'll want to check out this disc to hear how these bands had the audacity to screw up your favorite Police songs or to hear how they breathed new life into songs you didn't know you liked. The Solarmanite staff deliberately sought out bands that would put an original spin on the Police's well-known songs and instructed them to go as far out with it as they wanted to. "It kind of felt like we were commissioning art," explains label head, Megan Wendell. "Some bands took it farther than others, but it was exciting as they started turning in their tracks. We ended up with a really varied but still cohesive record." When Solarmanite Records first announced the project, emails from interested bands started pouring in. The final group consists of bands from all over the country and represent some of the best indie bands in the U.S.

CD Baby

Featuring various artists, all of who kick some major arse in the general vicinity of emo/indie rock and pop,"Many Miles Away" does some brilliant things with Police songs, twisting them, turning them on their head, hanging them upside down and shaking violently, partially re-assembling in bits and pieces, skewing and juxtaposing the textures of background, foreground and middleground with an abstract, bold result, something like a Picasso painting. You don't have to be a Police fan to appreciate the ingenuity and cleverness here but if you are, you'll be reaching for a major credit card.


It's All Here
If you're a Police fan with an open mind, you will LOVE this album. It's a totally fresh rendition of all of these songs. The album opens with Decembers January, covering Message in a Bottle. This is a driving rendition of the song, and probably the highlight of the album. There's a multitude of genres represented here. From jazzy rock to subdued electronica, from emo-ish pop punk to punky pop, it's all here.
