ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Solvents are an "indie rock" group from the Olympic Peninsula in the great state of Washington. They have been playing continuously in local and national venues since 2004 and have toured multiple times in Europe. Solvents’ influences range from Gram Parsons, to Husker Du, from Nirvana, to The Beatles from Big Star to The Replacements and everything in between. Solvents songs come alive in a strange and intriguing sonic landscape, where multi-layered guitars, marimbas and organs collide with violins and reverb-drenched drums. Defining the Solvents sound are the violin lines of Emily Madden. Her intuitive playing is an essential element that works beautifully with Bramson’s vocals and words. Together they create the Solvents rich atmosphere, contrast, and memorable melodies.
Solvents' 2010 LP, Forgive Yr Blood, shed a light on what many folks in the Pacific Northwest already knew: that Jarrod Bramson and Emily Madden had been quietly recording honest, heartfelt lo-fi masterpieces in the sleepy little town of Port Townsend, Washington for years.

Reviews:

"I find this band utterly charming in nearly every way, from the wistful vocals to the strings that back the acoustic or electric guitars, and of course, the quality of the songs with their slightly off-kilter titles."- When you Motor Away blog

"Port Townsend, Washington's Solvents might be one of the best kept secrets in the North West music scene. The band has quietly been recording earnest lo-fi songs for the better part of a decade"- My Old Kentucky blog

"....the pair have returned with new compilation The World is not a Vampire: Lost, Demos, Outtakes, Unheard. Featuring some of the greatest lo-fi recordings known to man and womankind, it’s sure to please fans old and new."-Drunken Werewolf music blog


"I’m in love with this album. I went back multiple times to see if it was simply a delusion, but it’s not. These demos are more than just a gazing ball of better things. These songs maybe more entrancing than what the end results might behold, and I feel like I know this band more from it than I would just hearing a glossy product."-ZAP Town blog
