"Peer Review of Tell Me"

This is a highly original track. Wonderful blend of instruments. It's not everyday that you hear flutes and brass blended with distorted guitar (outside of Jethro Tull perhaps). Some nice vocal effects as well. Fairly catchy hook that gets you humming along. I really like the mix of vocal styles. It has some of the energy and childlike joy found in many songs by the Apples In Stereo, but with a more complex blend of instrumentation. I'd be interested in hearing more from this group.

Sir Arthur and the Round Orbit is the live band of
singer/songwriter B.T. Von Gietzen.

B.T. Von Gietzen is more than just a certified studio engineer. He is also a life-long musician with a propensity for performing and recording 60s/70s style, space-rock jams that would make any Bowie, T-Rex or Lou Reed fan instantly feel at home.

Von Gietzen was born in California to a musical dynasty that manufactures the world-famous line of Getzen brass instruments. He formed his first group, Myst, in 1989 and followed it up with Drive Thru Cult in 1993 after its dissolution. He relocated to San Diego to start a solo recording career and became a BMI artist in the process.

On the production side, Von Gietzen worked as a live show engineer at California State University Fullerton and was chief engineer at King Studios in Chicago, IL. He graduated from the UCLA recording school and is an accomplished musician who can play the piano, bass, guitar, slide guitar, harmonica and mandolin flawlessly.

Von Gietzen recently released his latest album, "Space Face" (on iTunes), a collection of tripped-out, space anthems that travelled through time from the 1970s and landed in the 21st century. One can hear the strong David Bowie and Bauhaus influences on "Spiders In Time."
