ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Etched out in Brooklyn, New York, 24,200 miles is a chest of songs about insects, Incas, angels, farmers, human-powered planes, Satan, snowmobiles, and let's not forget women. Jano Rix and Matt Glassmeyer poke their heads out of a mound of different sounds to interpret the material in a way only possible through excessive hours in a windowless room.

How can two people make something that sounds this good?

Jano Rix: Vocals, Drums, and most Keyboards
Matt Glassmeyer: Vocals, Lyrics, String & Wind Instruments, and most Percussion & Miscellaneous Sounds

Recorded, Produced, and Mixed at Ghetto Meadows, Brooklyn, NY by Matt Glassmeyer and Jano Rix.

Mastered by Scott Hull

Great indie pop, with ambience and funk in the mix
I bought this CD a while back because I really enjoyed the Twelve20Six album as well. This is some really great indie pop, there is some great focused bass lines that add the greatest funk foundation and groove to some of these songs; they'll be these really simple bass lines but they have so much focus and direction. But besides great grooves and vocal harmonices and all that stuff, the thing flows well and everything is always kept interesting, it seriously is just a great pop record. The track Down and Nylon seriously takes me somewhere else everytime I hear it, and I don't mean that it takes me to where the lyrical content might suggest, I'm saying the song is such a perfect pop gem that everything is blured in my world when I listen to that song because it's so beautiful sounding.

Very Cool ambient indie rock
With song’s whose themes and concepts run the entire gamut of imagination (we’re talking Incas, farmers, Satan, snowmobiles, insects, and angels) you might think that the album would have a bit of a scatterbrain effect. But no. This is cohesive ambient post-rock that keeps length in mind—the longest track is only six minutes. So don’t get scared away if ambient rock usually isn’t your thing. Lyrically and vocally it almost comes across as the second coming of King Missile (without of course the one hit single). The music emanates from a myriad of instruments including saxophone, ukulele, melodica, samples, and mandolin. Intriguing!
