ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Atlanta's entry in the field of pop psychedelia is Silent Kids, an erstwhile three-piece that's a local rising star. The original trio of Michael Oakley, Jeff Holt, and Scott Rowe made their name by putting to good use vintage equipment, makeshift home studio space, an analog eight-track recorder, and general inventiveness. The band could easily be mistaken for an Elephant Six outfit were it not for its use of soaring guitars.

The band's recorded output consist of an early (and now out-of-print) EP, Radio Beams, and the 2003 full-length, Tomorrow Waits, which was re-released on Two Sheds in February 2003.

effortlessly engaging and unstrained in its classic pop-ness
Effortlessly engaging and unstrained in its classic pop-ness, the music of Silent Kids has a naturalness and authenticity that some of the Elephant Six bands with whom they have been compared can only strive for. Terms like power pop and neo-psychedelic seem, if not exactly irrelevant, rather unnecessary in the light of a music whose qualities transcend the need for any defining labels. And just beneath its flickering, slightly uneasy surface is an awareness of the transitory nature of all things.. of sadness and loss.

One of the better albums of 1965 ... a few decades late
“Tomorrow Waits” could have been one of the better albums of 1965. “Oh I” resembles a Syd Barrett outtake with its slide guitar and acoustic strumming. Lines like “I’ve lost my saffron view/I never wanted to” (the opening cut), “It’s been unbearable/On the Bering Sea” (a driving “The Bering Sea”), and “The trees melt away” (the title song) belong with Donovan and that whole psychedelic age. However, being a few decades late doesn’t prevent “Tomorrow Waits” from being fun to listen to. In the rocker “Miami,” vocalist Michael Oakley even sings “it’s 1965” and repeats how “we can appreciate you now” as the tune closes with Pink Floydish noodling. “Drift into the Summer” and other cuts boast some nice guitar. There are even two snippets of let’s-twist-this-knob instrumentals -- "Lost in the Petrified Forest" and "The Laughing Horse" -- (barely totaling a minute though). The final title cut appropriately meanders for more than five minutes after the initial four-minute “traditional” song … far out.
