Joe Boone with the Memphis Flyer posted about last week’s Otherlands show on the Sing All Kinds blog (link), and had this to say:
“Imperial Lanes is a varied mix of pop. It was recorded by Harry Koniditsiotis. ‘A Team of Bumblebees’ has a Manchestery reverberation to it: drony guitars, drums so lush they sound like their coming from next door. ‘Girl of My Dreams’ has a wonderfully tweaked guitar solo. The whole record sounds pure and unforced, even as the sounds evolve from track to track.”
Thanks to Joe and the Flyer for the write-up!
…from our friend Richard Lester, who had this to say:
“Imperial Lanes is the debut effort from Memphis band, The Pneumatic Girls. The band mixes numerous influences such as Bowie, Orbison, and even shoegazing to create a unique sound. Mixing modern rock n’ roll sensibilities with a bit of ‘Wall of Sound’ technique, The Girls have created a sound that is both large and intimate. The songs are personal and emotional, though vague enough to allow every listener to connect with the material.
This is a great record just waiting to be discovered by music fans in the know.”
