The best kept secret in music

Press


"this up here"

by, David Elliott

This record reminds me of why I fell in love with rock 'n' roll to begin with and why I keep crawling through the dreck in hopes of finding a gem. - Dallastexasmusic.com


"LOCAL MUSIC"

by, Malcolm Mayhew

One of the best local CDs to come across my desk in a while belongs to SUPER LOVE ATTACK. Yes, the name is lame but their record, This Up Here, takes what I like from Polyphonic Spree-upbeat pop - and nails it into swirly, My Bloody Valentine-like noise. - Ft Worth Star Telegram-star times


"this up here"

Pioneering the use of the 'aircraft hangar' reverb setting, Super Love Attack deliver an immense album. The My Bloody Valentine influence is predominant, but the vocals play a much more important, and upfront part in SLA's sound. Big tunes, even bigger guitar sound, there's not much to dislike about such an approachable and consistent album.

"Super Love Attack defies classification"

Their music brings in multiple musical elements, defying classification, but utilizing its intricacies to appeal to the listener's ear. - NT Daily


"La Femme Qui Rock"

Super Love Attack's set stole the long middle section of the night, alternating between boy-girl harmonies on loud, crunching chord progressions and dreamier songs with chiming guitar notes and oozing Moog lines. - Dallas Observer


"Army of sounds gets released"

There's something of both rock's volume and pop's tunefulness in these songs - as might be expected from musicians who are fans of the Pixies and My Bloody Valentine. Their songs cover a wide range of moods. Staccato keyboards add a bounce to "Carnivalore," but there are also smooth numbers like "Starmice" and "Moonpi." The band also veers near punk-rock territory with McKeever's screamed-sung vocals in "Theme Song" and the chaotic first punch of "One Two," heavy on the guitars, Alex Maples' on drums and band members' shouting. "Mishap," the albums eighth track sounds a touch like French band Air mixed with New Order-brand new wave. - Denton Record Chronicle

Bio

Multi-talented singer/songwriter/guitarists Mark McKeever, keyboardist/vocalist Christy Stewart and drummer Alex Maples all have artistic pedigrees spawned from the heart of new Texas alternative rock. Both McKeever (as their original keyboard player) and Stewart (as part of its new growing choir) both spent two and a half years as original members of the Polyphonic Spree and Maples devoted six years to Bella's Union (Cocteau Twins-owned label Jetscreamer.

Super Love Attack, the Lone Star fruit born from those loins, formed in late '03 in Denton, Tx. The driving force behind the union was a hope to reconnect with rock in a way their previous bands had departed from. They so began playing regionally with bands like Ambulance, Elefant, Midlake, Comet and The Octopus Project and built a fan base Right Place Records could invest in. The band is a gem that doesn't sound local and looks primed for bigger things soon
