Pardon the Solar Interruption
Washington's DC's Secret Pop Band is pleased to announce the release of their debut album, Pardon the Solar Interruption. Ever the consummate rock historians, the Secret Pop Band (SPB) respect rich rock-n-roll traditions without ever resorting to cliché. From the Superchunk-esque rock of "Sunday's Hard Rock Falls," the neo-power balladry of "Listening to the Tiger," to the pure-pop of "Week Old Beer," the SPB delivers hook after hook with a mixture of humor, brevity and heart. The SPB's concerns are those of the common pop fan - girls, music, outer space and mortality. They understand. Tune-in to the Secret Pop Band this summer and catch a buzz! Formed a few short years ago by former Ape House singer J. Forté and the legendary Lejeune rhythm section of Greg Gendron and Ody Leonard, the SPB has become a favorite of music fans seeking some serious catchiness. Initially brought together to promote J.'s debut solo record, Secret Pop, the SPB has evolved into a fully-realized, high-energy power-pop trio. Press for Pardon the Solar Interruption "The group displays an energetic Superchunk like pace that showers you with memorable hooks...and will send you into a catchy rock pop bliss that sticks with you on each successive spin!" - The Fire Note "They belt out one catchy number after another. 'Your New England Winter', the breezy 'Solar Interruption', and the Kinksian 'Week Old Beer' are the highlights, but close behind is the rocking 'Sunday's Hard Rock Falls' and the amusingly titled 'Rachel Harmony'." - Absolute Powerpop "Lo-fi guilty pleasures, combining the best power-pop elements from Secret Pop tracks such as 'Analyze' and 'Purple Clouds, Dark Skies' with hook-and-harmony focus...'" - The Onion.
