Music

The best kept secret in music

Press


"FULL has managed to make complex, shifting, and what should be difficult music sound like pure pop. It's a recipe that's destined for the big time."
www.AllMusic.com

"...the most innovative sound I've heard come out of Michigan."
www.MichiganBands.com

"Dimstar is something of a triumph."
www.SplendidEzine.com

"This impressively eclectic Motor City export funnels Portishead's angelic mope through a factory of hyperactive drum samples, vibraphone sprinkles, and brass blasts"
Seattle Weekly

"Imagine Portishead crossed with Tortoise at their jazziest, and shiver in anticipation."
The Stranger (Seattle)

"[Dimstar is] the surprise favorite of the year, the one that swooped in unexpectedly and ROCKED US! BEST of 2003"
Both Sides of the Surface

"...a head-spinningly creative local (Detroit) band who, by all rights, should be the recipients of all the attention and praise that is currently being lavished upon the White Stripes..."
www.NoRipcord.co.uk (UK)

"...perfectly moody and moodily perfect."
www.SponicZine.com

"...vocalist Ms. Wings has an absolutely stellar voice - her vocals and harmonies would be absolutely show stopping"

“…Beth Gibbons, Bjork and Prefuse 73 are appropriate comparisons, but the music's sheer organic intensity is warmer than those artists imply”
www.sponiczine.com

“Evocative, sexy, energetic, mellow, anything but what you most expect, (Dimstar) is a beautiful mix of soul. These adventurous tunes take you places you’ve never dreamed of imagining. Exotic, Haunting, dreamy, psychotic, these songs are a trip through layers of metaphor and complexity while all the more pleasing to the ear and shifting emotion.”
www.coolgrrrls.com

“It would be quite easy to compare them to the likes of an experimental Radiohead but luckily Full are more interesting than that.”
www.phase9.tv

“Too diverse (and good) to be saddled with the outdated term 'trip hop,' Dimstar instead straddles all kinds of genres (hip hop, Eastern, jazz, pop) without settling on a singular sound.
www.sponiczine.com

“Full take you all over the globe …through their clever use of African rhythms, New York avant-jazz, English pop and Spanish folk melodies.
www.splendidezine.com

“…they embrace a wide range of instrumental sentiments (ranging from cellos, vibraphones and trumpets to your more standard set) and risk venturing off into the parallels of drum n’ bass, jazz and rock. There is no ‘typical Full sound’.”
www.soundthesirens.com

“They call it avant chamber rock, and while throughout Dimstar Full often comes off faux jazzy, slick, and too deliberate, beneath the surface this record is really a masterful cross of early solo Björk somnambulance, India.Arie soul, and utopian Tortoise-ized post-Disneyland sounds. “
www.allmusic.com

“Full's music is an addictive and original blend of groove-heavy atmosphere and artful melodies delivered by vocalist Ms. Wings.”
www.noripcord.co.uk

“The album is so diverse, and the sounds so distinctive, that individual genres are too specific to satisfy the cause.”
www.losingtoday.com

“The music is dreamy, jazzy, loungy, almost trip-hop, and all around cool.”

Bio

Five years. Three full-length albums--fourth slated for summer 2006. Two EPs. One transcontinental migration. Two west coast tours in 2005. We are an electro-acoustic chamber-pop sextet, by turns ecstatic and understated, raucous and luscious, underground, over the top --- never less than FULL all ways. We snuck out of Detroit and into Seattle just over a year ago. We like eclectic surroundings, playing rock clubs with heavier bands, dance clubs with DJs and hip-hop acts, jazz venues with improv guests, on multifarious bills with comedians, performance artists, video installations, piercing contestants. Remember FULL.
