ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Roche Limit's debut album entitled “White Light” is another stunning example of why Canadian independent music continues to gain more and more recognition. Combining electronic, pop-rock, and folk influences, Roche Limit has been compared to the likes of both Beck and Nine Inch Nails.

Charity VanDeberg of ReGen Online Music Magazine writes

"Roche Limit is what Beck would be if Beck still sounded like Beck.
Vancouver's Dave Righton discovered a way to travel back in time to 1996, Los Angeles. Once there, he accosted young Beck at the height of his popularity and distilled his vital essence (or stole his mojo, if you prefer). Upon returning to the present, he quickly added his stolen treasure to the pile of elements kept safe in his private music laboratory. Gary Numan's keen sense of electronic musical layering supported the heap, covering the table like a thick film. Upon it, a small chunk of Trent Reznor's intensity shone like polished coal. Ween's whimsy presented itself as a stuffed raccoon. There could be seen flowers and water balloons, violin strings and penny whistles, and many things indefinable. Once added, Beck's essence thinned and covered the lot like a layer of liquid metal alloy. Righton donned his thick gloves and molded the mass into something wieldier, nudging it into a smaller and smaller object. Finally, when it was the appropriate size, he popped it into his mouth and swallowed. The mutation that followed created the creature that was called Roche Limit. From Roche Limit was born White Light.

Like the bulb hypnotizing a moth, White Light draws the listener in. At first, it may be the Orb-like instrumentals, but the moment "Victor Promo" begins, it triggers a sense of sad nostalgia for a time when Beck ruled. Quirky and witty, it is a story of an ugly man obsessed with others' beauty. The unapologetic "To be Myself" blends Beck with a tempo-bending God Lives Underwater while "Little Moments" is like INXS meets Dirty Vegas. Nine Inch Nails make an appearance through an ode to boredom called "The Same." Although melodically and lyrically different, it is greatly reminiscent of Trent Reznor's "Every Day is Exactly the Same."

Roche Limit has taken a conglomeration of influences and made them into something new and yet comfortingly familiar. Dave Righton is one musical talent to be watched."

Refreshing
This album is a refreshing change for everything that is out there. It's fun, a bit catchy at times and serious all at the same time. I can't wait to see what else is out there by this guy.

Great Album
I found this CD to be a refreshing addition to my music collection. Every song is different (ie. the songs don't blend together) yet maintain a common theme or feel. I like very much and recommend it to anyone. I'll be keeping my eye out for more from these guys in the future!
