"Review of "Head! Foot! And The Pink Axe""

A basket of instrumental genius. - 75 or Less

"Review of "Head! Foot! And The Pink Axe""

With plenty of build ups, climaxes, and plateaus, they have far more character than lots of the artsy electro-noise-ambient-instrumental stuff out there. - Evil Needles

"Review of "Head! Foot! And The Pink Axe""

"Head! Foot! And the Pink Axe" is a compelling listen, and frankly it's hard to disguise the daring talent behind this album. - All Music Guide

"Review of "Head! Foot! And The Pink Axe""

Broad does not describe Stationary Odyssey. Nor does eclectic. Or bizarre. Or weird. Try fantastic, passionate, and experimental. - Smother

"Profile: Stationary Odyssey"

The brainchild of Aaron Tanner, Stationary Odyssey take their knack for avant garde druthers and merge it with a moody instrumental hybrid of syrupy psychedelic rhythms, elastic riffs, and moody retro film score like infusions. Deep and ambient enough for those liking a good sonic chill, and gritty enough to appeal to the fans of Isis and Red Sparrows, Stationary Odyssey will have the critics pulling the term post rock out of their asses but their signature sound is so ahead of it’s time that it’s more like post post rock. - Modern Fix

An intensely broad spectrum of sound and mood come with the music of Stationary Odyssey. They toe the boundaries of modern music with a fierce devotion to the homegrown DIY ethics of their Midwestern roots.

- In early 2007, the band had features in both VERBICIDE MAGAZINE and MODERN FIX.

- After touring with FRANK BLACK in early 2007, Mike Farmer (aka KENTUCKY PROPHET) lended his vocal talents on two Stationary Odyssey songs for a split EP with CHILD BITE (Suburban Sprawl Music).

- In December of 2006, Stationary Odyssey released a free, downloadable EP that contained a remix by KRAMER (WEEN, BUTTHOLE SURFERS).

- Stationary Odyssey's debut EP, Komondor, was named one of the top 15 MOST IMPORTANT RELEASES of 2004 in Japan (Duotone Records).
