Album Notes
"‘The Rollo Treadway’ is a crafted and exquisite leftfield pop masterpiece." - Americana UK

"... A beautifully realized concept album of glittering, reverb-soaked gems ..." - National Public Radio

"It's so sunny and seductive, it takes a minute to realize the 13 songs form a narrative about kidnapping!" - MSN

"Brooklyn based quintet The Rollo Treadway offer up a scenic psychedelic pop masterpiece that must be listened to from beginning to end. ... A truly special album by a band that seems to be on the verge of blowing up into outer space somewhere." - NeuFuture

"An impressively ambitious, melodic, harmony- and reverb-laden soundscape..." - USA Today

"Every so often you come across a CD so good that you enjoy every track. ... For me, The Rollo Treadway is such a band." - LAist

"I'm happy to say that this BKNY band is the real deal. ... Strong songs with intricate melodies and dark lyrical content throughout [that] deserve to be heard by all intelligent pop fans." - Dagger

"The Rollo Treadway is a bit of a hidden masterpiece; and I am very interested to see where this band goes next." - FensePost

"... Cool calculated Baroque pop and some of the best vocals you are likely to hear on this side of the solar system (the harmonies are the best). These guys write circles around other bands in terms of cool melodies. Wonderfully realized, this is super effective intelligent pop music with a difference. Every tune is a knockout..." - Babysue

"An album of class and wit ... Great stuff, and just about on the good side of too-clever-by-half. ... Sandholm's breathy, inflected voice is a perfect vehicle for the macabre lyrics." - Terrascope

"I can't seem to take this gem off of repeat." - Side One: Track One

"Lovers of baroque pop, can't miss this one. In fact, neither should anyone else." - Powerpopaholic

"The album is a charmer; it's so 60's chamber pop, you'll feel like wearing paisley after listening to it. ... I highly recommend this especially if you admire anything from that decade." - The POP! Stereo

"The hooks set quickly and don't release until the last chord has rolled off into the mist. Pretty damned cool." - Aiding & Abetting

"Brooklyn band The Rollo Treadway captures the magic of '60s sunshine pop-rock. "Kidnapped" possesses the inspired intricacies of a Brian Wilson classic." - Palo Alto Daily News

"New York’s spin on Cali baroque pop is ultimately, delectably blackhearted." - Venus Zine

"This is a set of rich, densely arranged, meticulously detailed, sinisterly slanted storyteller songs that can’t help but catch your ear." - Striker Bill

"... A band that manages to be more creative in one tune than the complete roster of bands you're about to find on any Top10 list ..." - Popism

"David Sandholm and company are on to something and everyone’s going to want in." - Adequacy

"... They bring a freshness, wit and intelligence to their work that's pretty rare these days. I defy anyone not to like this, their debut album." - Bolachas Grátis

"It's not every day you get an album ... [that] seems to be the soundtrack to some kind of film noir rock (pop) opera. ... The self-titled debut from Brooklyn's The Rollo Treadway is ... a disc of beautifully realized Brian Wilson/Wondermints/60s-70s sunshine pop." - Absolute Powerpop

"Elements of The Association, the Electric Prunes, Pink Floyd, and the Byrds are all present throughout this masterpiece! ... Let the other musos say what they will; so far as The Baron is concerned, it's The Rollo Treadway who are putting Brooklyn on the musical map!" - Baron Saturday

"... On first listen we were already proclaiming this pop record of the year. Mellotrons, warm organs, jangly guitars, and some of the most gorgeous breathy vocals harmonies we've heard in ages. It's really hard to explain what exactly is so magical about this record, other than the sound is amazing, and the songs are fantastic. if "Kidnapped" doesn't immediately send you into paroxysms of pop bliss, then you need to march right down to your local Pop Music headquarters and turn in your membership." - Aquarius Records

My Favorite CD of 2008!
I'm so glad I found this through CD's so fresh and I discover something new with each listen. My favorite songs are "You Laugh, I Cry," "Kidnapped" and "Time to Dream" but they're all really good. Somehow it achieves being quintessentially 60s and 00s at the same time. I hardly ever give five stars, but I'd give this one more if I could!
