""6 out of 5 Stars...Say whaaa??""

"6 out of 5 Stars...Say whaaa?? I absolutely loved the band. The music and vocals just went together like Pizza and Beer! There is just something about music that is good when you hear it, it hits you differently. They have a whole Death Cab for Cutie/Oasis/The Frey vibe and it is really complimenting them well. I instantly downloaded the EP to my Ipod and have listened to it every day since the review. I don't know what else to say about them other than the fact that it just fits so well. From the sound, the image, the lyrics you really get brought into the song yourself. "

"We Could Be Kings" :: EP :: 2011



"The real danger is not that computers will begin to think like men, but that men will begin to think like computers."
This quote, from journalist Sydney J. Harris, served as an intriguing basis for the name of the Kansas City-based "Think Like Computers". In this age when everyone you know is a merely a tweet or status update away, and people live on constant streams of instant content, it may seem like individual human thought is falling by the wayside, replaced, instead, by what our computers allow us communicate to others. Music has always been deeply personal for the members of this quartet, and while Think Like Computers' music is not really on the "electronic" side, per se, technology has played a huge role in the forming and evolution of the band and trying to find that balance between the human, or analog, side and the computer side of music is something they love exploring.

It was 2009 when the band Eric and drummer BJ Demage were in ended. Wanting to continue making music together Eric contacted an old friend in New York, who agreed to record bass for new demo songs Eric and BJ had created. Sending files back and forth across the internet and building songs up piece by piece allowed the duo to have something tangible to present to other musicians. When they did, it was mere weeks until the band had formed and started practicing and writing more songs. Turnaround time on a task like this would have been next to impossible 20-30 years ago.

In July of 2011, a friends came back into their lives after living overseas for a few years, just about the time the band was in need of a bass player. Dustin stepped in and brought a musical familiarity for Eric and BJ, and meshed with the group better than anyone could have expected.

Now, only in their second year of existence, the band is branching out, starting to play away from KC, embracing more technology and a hardcore DIY ethic when it comes to creating and releasing music. Look for their first full-length release in 2012.
