Points & Corners
Regarding Points & Corners: OC Weekly: 'A perfect pop album.' OC Register*: ''Points & Corners' is one of the most original releases I've heard this year. Blending lo-fi, art damage and indie rock, the group and it's guest players fuse melodic and atonal songwriting and layer that mixture with male and female vocals, spoken word, piano and pedal steel, as well as the usual drum-bass-guitar rock foundation.' [*Also selected by the OC Register as one of 2005's ten best local releases.] Neufutur.com: ''Points & Corners' is an album that should be lauded as one of the perfect pieces of pop to come out in the last few years' themusicedge.com: 'Points and Corners is a sterling effort from Orange County's The Santiago Steps, a band whose music is best described as a big mess. Often coming off like Rilo Kiley with A.D.D., it's songs seem like delightfully spontaneous musical experiments that can't contain themselves for long.
