We Will Carry You Out to Sea
We Will Carry You Out to Sea taps into multiple platforms; on the standout cut 'You're Not a Morning Person Are You,' a cozy sax solo gives way to Waldron's gnarled and distorted guitar chops, leading into the blue-eyed soul of hammed-up ballad 'When I Sing.' On the other hand, the hook on 'Maybe Tom Cruise Had a Point' is upbeat spazz-rock and should be an entertaining highlight on the band's next wave of gigs. - Chris Conti, Providence Phoenix Dec. 2009 For years, below the crust of the Earth, beyond the soft gooey magma and the tunnels of the scurrying mole men, the musical mad scientists of Stalemate have been working long (non-union) hours constructing a 'grand experiment'. Mixing into their cauldron a highly volatile mix of molten guitar solos, high pitched yowling, heart on the sleeve Millenial rantings, and hyper-kinetic rhythms, both dance and head-bang compatible. What does this leave us with? 'We Will Carry You Out To Sea'. 10 tracks that might very well redeem the last decade of music for the masses at large. They say that 1 in 4 people owns a copy of Pink Floyd's 'Dark SIde of the Moon', well, those same people will buy two copies of this record. -Stephen Bailey, Beat Surrender. December '09.
