ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
\"You know those classic bands that really matter, not just because they write great music, but because they love each other and it shows in their playing? [That] have not a shred of smarmy pretentiousness and love to play music more than anything? Those bands who are dorky and unfashionable and couldn\'t care less? Point Juncture, WA is one of those bands.\" -Levi Cecil/Music Liberation Project

MAMA AUTO BOSS is the much anticipated first full-length album from Portland, OR indie-rock quintet Point Juncture, WA.

Self-recorded over the better part of a year in band-member Skyler Norwood\'s Camas, WA studio, MAMA AUTO BOSS follows one year on the heels of the band\'s six-song, hand-crafted debut, Juxtapony EP (Lucky Madison Records).

2005 has seen Point Juncture, WA grow from the unspoken house band at the dearly departed Nocturnal nightclub into one of Portland\'s top-draw indie acts, garnering 4th place in Willamette Week\'s \"Best Bands in Portland, 2005\" feature and playing prime slots at both the PDX POP NOW! and MusicFest NW showcases.

Counting among their influences bands like Yo La Tengo, Broken Social Scene, and Blonde Redhead, Point Juncture, WA build their \"ethereal dreampop\" on layers of dub-like beats, melodic/dissonant guitars and droning keyboards with vocal performances from three of the band\'s members and accents from a rollicking vibraphone and the occasional trumpet blast.

Like Juxtapony, MAMA AUTO BOSS will be released in a hand-made, spray-painted, letter-pressed folding cardboard case bearing a none-too-slight japanese influence.

\"...the overall impression is one of sincere, genuine music-making; these four guys and a girl put their hearts into every sound, every silence and every breath, reminding us that the magic of music happens in the subtleties and the vulnerabilities.\" -CDbaby.com

Tamara Turner, CD Baby


Another gorgeous album from Point Juncture, WA which doesn't come as a surprise but nevertheless, takes the breath away. With a transparent mixture of both acoustic and electronic vocabulary, their textures seem to reflect and cast light in multiple directions when their shimmering melodies come in, with full sparkling clarity. This is an album about color. Washes and floods of color, from wet color to dry color, from bristly to fuzzy. Simply put, it is an ideal disc for the emo rock and dream pop fan who never thought she could get both in one album, especially with dub and electronica mixed in for even more depth and sonorities. Hands down, a stunning project.
