"The Station Myth"

It’s such an acomplished feeling (for me) when you discover a really wonderful album, especially when it’s by a band that most people have never even heard of. That’s the music snob coming out in me. Wait.. it’s always out. So thanks to my one loyal blog read, Michael Jones, I have had the pleasure of enjoying the first full length record from New York’s The Station Myth. I think it’s a brilliant blend of prog rock, electronica, and really beautiful melodies and vocal harmonies. It definitely transcends a specific genre but i’m sure one of the very capable and uninspired writers at pitchfork will let you know exactly what type of music it is and why it sucks. Regardless, I think it’s a brilliant first release. - Driving Into The Wreck


"The Station Myth"

This Indie band is awesome! Check out the The Station Myth the next time you're in New York. This foursome is all named Daniel (that's how it worked out) so, it would be pointless to say, Daniel plays the drums, the guitar, etc.... When you go to their show call them by their last names: Bellury (Bass), Fickle (Guitar, Keys), Ryan (Guitar, Vocals), and Whitt (Drums). Their unique sound, recorded in the backdrop of the Georgia mountains, rivals the instrumentals of Maserati and the vocals of the Killers. - Living on a Whim


"About the Music Volume #54"

... Expect big things from these yet to be signed lads. Their sound is large and bold, atmospheric pop/rock at it's best. Leanda will be talking to the band (four blokes all named Daniel!) about the recording of their new record, life in NYC, and their plans for the rest of the year. - Leanda, University of Toronto


"leanda's Pick of the Week"

I met up with The Station Myth lads in a bar just off Spring Street in Manhattan...we had a drink and they handed me a freshly pressed copy of their debut record. I've been waiting in great anticipation a whole year for this record. I met the lads last year whilst I was in NYC...they told me about their band and I listened to them online. To describe their sound is difficult…they have a brilliant drummer, arrange beautiful songs with sweeping guitars and smoothly delicate vocals. Think early Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins...a decidedly British flavor with a NYC gritty edge....songs like 'Buried in the sound' (track 3) start out with droning vocals that pan out to reveal a brilliant guitar driven melody and sharp savage drumming. You have to check these lads out...the record is beautifully recorded and a real pleasure to listen to. Find out more about these lads on myspace, we'll have them on the show soon....it won't be long before they're signed...truly brilliant! - Leanda, WCIUT, University of Toronto

Bio

The Station Myth are four Daniels living in New York City. Although the Daniels live and breathe the NYC life, their debut album is possibly more influenced by the serene Southern locale in which they recorded. Three of the four Daniels grew up in the South and transplanted to New York where they met Daniel Ryan (lead vocalist), the fourth and final member. The band traveled south to Pine Mountain, Georgia in the summer of 2005, secluding themselves in a cabin on top of a mountain for over a month to record their new self-titled record. The record, as its artwork would also suggest, explores the push-and-pull of the city, and the results of putting one’s self at an objective distance from the city.

Their sound travels between Radiohead, Elbow, Joy Division, and Death Cab for Cutie, crossing the lines of pop and prog along the way.

The inventive, somewhat odd, drumming of Daniel Whitt and the powerful lead guitar of Daniel Fickle create The Station Myth's foundation. The bass guitar, performed by Daniel Bellury, crosses the line between foundation and secondary melody. This strange setup, mixed with the ambient production methods, create a soundscape not easily tamed. But Daniel Ryan, the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist, has been said to "surf the waves of the other Daniels' wake."

The Station Myth wish to alert you of the completion of their new self-titled album. To gain awareness of the ten-song epic, The Station Myth have teamed with the radio promotion talents of Athens, Georgia’s Team Clermont. Also in support of the new record, The Station Myth will embark on an eastern-US 3-week tour beginning September 22nd of this year, supported by Powderfinger Promotions (Boston). A music video is currently in production for Digger. The video is directed by Brian Jackson (Elbow, Gomez, Type O Negative), and will be an artistic representation of Digger's atmospheric tension. The video uses a cutting-edge technology that supports High-Definition slow motion.

The likelihood of four musically like-minded men named Daniel coming together on the isle of Manhattan in the dreary winter of 2004 seems more like an excerpt from a Dr. Seuss book than a reality. However a reunion of old friends, a cry for percussion, and a chance encounter at a local watering hole turned this strange bit of fiction into a sonic actuality.

The Station Myth are influenced in large part by the serendipitous nature in which they came together.
