ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Geometry...And Other Diversions" is the original debut under the Shape project title.


Shape is the pet of singer/songwriter Dustin Parent. Originally and currently a drummer for various original rock bands in St. Louis, Dustin hatched the project in 2001 and soon produced the debut album "Geometry...And Other Diversions"-- to the acclaim of many a family member and the sound of many a chirping cricket. Soon after, as other "promising" musical interests consumed his time, half-written Shape songs began to collect dust along with a gross over-abundance of unopened "Geometry..." copies. But in the wake of yet another almost-got-our-first-few-toes-in-the-door-and-then-promptly-self-destructed rock band experience, the feather-duster has been brandished and a long-overdue (at least in Dustin's mind) sophomore album has been released and submitted for the obscure music-lover's approval. (Search for Shape:Spy Music) "Spy Music" represents a considerable leap forward in style-combining more deftly a myriad of influences such as The Police, Hum, The Sneaker Pimps, George Michael and Jeff Buckley. It also lights the torch of a newly-adopted creative philosophy which includes: the fervant writing and releasing of new material; collaborating with and showcasing the talents of other musicians in the (understandably) overlooked St. Louis scene; and the complete rejection of the artistically-stifling practices of the major music business. While "Geometry..." was performed entirely by Dustin Parent, "Spy Music" features Keith Mangles of the band Dozemarypool (a fantastic band, though unfortunately not found on cd baby). The result has left Dustin excited and supremely motivated to continue his creative journey with an ever-evolving musical cast, along with his beloved hobby of writing about himself in the third-person.

Hope you enjoy, and thank-you sincerely for supporting the artists at a time when true music lovers might once again make a difference.

Bought on a recommendation and haven't regretted it.
I bought this CD on a recommendation from a friend and I haven't regretted it after listening to it. Interesting lyrics mesh well with the instruments. I'm looking forward to buying the second release.
