"Evening Magazine"

"Every now and then, you'll stumble across a pleasant musical surprise. A band you have no great expectations for comes out of nowhere and sweeps you off your feet with grace and subtlety. Stop
reading this, and start listening to it. Chills." - The Animal Show


"A multifaceted, widescreen and technicolor collection... a very
strong calling card." - Clicky Clicky Music Blog


"And with so many members and extensive instrumentation, the music has a rich quality, yet they manage to pull off some great quiet moments, too, I keep searching for a comparison…This is a band you really need to keep an eye out for." - The Broken Bell


"Smoothly subtle, spin quality songs, beautifully cohesive."
– Dryvetime Online


"(EM is) a force to be reckoned with…" – The 405


"Marrying an old-fashioned "sound of Philadelphia" sweep to 21st-century electronics and indie-rock flavorings, Evening Magazine makes music that shouldn't probably work but does." - Fingertips


"An omnisciently individual quality. Well developed and superbly
produced." - The Wheel's Still in Spin


"A brilliantly assured, quietly confident climax, unhurried and
gentle.This is a great piece of work. I really do like this band." -
ZME


"This Philadelphia nine-piece debut is pretty much the soundtrack
to my December. In making The Ride Across Lake Constance,
Evening Magazine have made a genuinely accomplished record."

"From the hand claps on "18 Wheels" to the strings on "Eddie" to the slide guitar on the hypnotic "Everyone Can Hear You," you'd be
hard-pressed to find a bad musical decision on this impressive debut
mini-album. The Ride Across Lake Constance is one of the more
accomplished introductions to a band I've heard in some time and I'm looking forward to a full-length from this Philadelphia collective." -

Founded by ex-BC Camplight (One Little Indian) guitarist David Disbrow and recording engineer Kevin Francis, Evening Magazine features bold, anthemic arrangements and diverse instrumentation, making use of a large collective membership, and capitalizing on young veteran Disbrow's voice, often a ghostly summons. The band uses horns to massive effect on songs like "Everyone Can Hear You" (a quiet gut-punch of a song), contrasting a plaintive, rootsy melody. Francis agrees; "It's no surprise that there's a Bill Conti-type spirit on that record. We grew up in Philadelphia." A demo of their song, "Eddie", was featured last year on the vanguard Los Angeles radio station KCRW. Their debut EP, 'The Ride Across Lake Constance', was released in January 2009, available on iTunes, EMusic, Amazon, Rhapsody and other online retailers.
