The best kept secret in music


NO-FI Magazine
THE TEMPORARY THING "The Temporary Thing" CD
reviewed by Mary Bond

This band is flawless. I know, how dare I say something so extreme? But, really- they are truly something special. The music flows so beautifully. The lyrics: poetic, gorgeous, raw, true. The music: perfect. They have definite folk-pop influences, ala Belle and Sebastian. They even remind me a bit of Wiskey Biscuit, not in sound, but unique style. There is an enchanting 1960's sound to them as well- you know that saying -if I knew then what I know now- they encapsulate and apply this to the present. Do you get my drift? They seem to know what was good then and incorporate it with the now. These guys are seriously talented. It’s mind blowing. I am even interviewing them- next month- so watch out for that and in the meantime, you must get a copy of this CD for yourself! You just can’t be disappointed - unless you are maybe totally ignorant to great music. Stand out songs are: "Tan Line Blues" and "This Ain't Love" and "Anyway's The Same" and "You, Me, And A Bottle of Whiskey" and "She Always Gets Her Way".

Feeling a bit camera shy


We have been playing shows in and around Los Angeles for six years. Though based in LA we have also booked and toured the United States twice as well as played shows in Europe. We have self-produced a number of albums which are for sale on our website. We have a solid, loyal fan base in LA and around the nation, as well as a surprisingly strong following in France. In fact, we have an outstanding offer to perform live on France’s national radio station by Bernard Lenoir of the Black Sessions). Influences range from Leonard Cohen to Belle and Sebastian.

We have been played on the following radio stations (in addition to Radio France):
* Indie 103.1 (LA)
* BBC Radio 1 - John Peel's show
* National Public Radio
