Release Notes:

The second album from The Silent League is a labour
of love and a thing of beauty. Fronted by former
Mercury Rev member Justin Russo, The Silent League
release their new album on Something Under
Construction on June 18th

With his 8 piece band Russo creates driving
orchestral pop. Surrounded by calling guitars and
basking in warm brass arrangements, Russo’s delicate
and yet often epic songs proudly bare their pop-rock
sensibility. Songs to swing to, songs to sing to,
songs to raise a smile to… Of Stars & Other
Somebodies is a feast of ambitious summertime pop
rock, soft rock at heart and proud of it.

Mixed by Charlie Francis (REM, Wilco) the bands
natural production and spacious arrangements offer
nods to Hunky Dory era Bowie, Flaming Lips, ELO,
Lambchop and Talk Talk.

Despite the critical acclaim of their debut, this
album feels like the first collection that truly
represents the glorious live impact of this 8 piece
line-up. And with members of the band working
elsewhere with Arcade Fire, Feist, TV On The Radio
and Beirut, it is unsurprising that The Silent
League have a unique gift for expansive pop songs of
immediate depth and sophistication.

Of Stars & Other Somebodies has the instantly
timeless quality of a great album; lead single
‘Aeroplanes’ feels as though it has forever resided
in the subconscious, ‘Before You Started’ reaches
out like an old friend and ‘Kings & Queens’ is
prophetic manifesto anthem.

With the album released in the UK on June 18, ‘the
league’ will take their sizeable show on the road in
July, coinciding with the single Aeroplanes and its
stunning animated video.
Festival dates include: Latitude, Truck, Indian
Summer in Glasgow and Fflam in Swansea.

Critical acclaim for the debut album The Orchestra,
Sadly, Has Refused;
“A fine debut” MOJO 4/5
“A beauty….reserve space and time for it” Q 4/5
Recommended
“…could be one of the surprise hits of the summer”
SUNDAY TIMES
"Rock Music at its most elegiac and beautiful" NME
8/10
" A lush expansive orchestral pop record...sublime."
Rolling Stone

"Highly Recommended. Brian Wilson's legacy shimmers
through the songs…grandly expansive and
ever-so-slightly-psychedelic pop." - New York Times

Цитата:
The Silent League is releasing a new record, it’s third, in Jan 2010, “But You’ve Always Been The Caretaker…”. This time with the idiosyncratic producer, and band-member, Shannon Fields at the helm (founder and producer of the unclassifiable Brooklyn collective Stars Like Fleas, and whose musical credits include Helado Negro, Miho Hatori, Doveman, and many projects that ignore rock and pop altogether), the band spent time at various upstate farmhouse studios with recording and mixing engineer D. James Goodwin (Scary Mansion, The Bravery) crafting a somewhat different record.


This is the 3rd album released by New York’s The Silent League, album is set to be released Jan. 27 2010, altough

Release Notes:


With the New York tag, normally comes visions of black leather jackets
and black skinny jeans; trend-setters abandoning guitars for synths in
a quest for cool. Sidestepping this assembled throng of scene chasers,
Brooklyn based The Silent League have their hearts in an entirely
different New York; a musically historic up-state New York: the
Catskill Mountains. Spiritual home to The Band and name checked by the
likes of Beck and Mercury Rev.

Over the last five years, the collective lead by Justin Russo, who at
the time of the bands formation was playing keyboards for Mercury Rev
has been periodically forming, releasing records (their second, Of
Stars and Other Somebodies, never receiving a release in North
America), playing a few shows and then disappearing again. Over the
years the band has been made up of a varying cast including members of
Interpol, Arcade Fire, Beirut, St. Vincent, Stars Like Fleas and Bishop
Allen. In its current incarnation the band has Shannon Fields on board
as producer and performer to help create a record of perfectly executed
soft-pop gems.

Sonically, But Youve Always Been The Caretaker (the bands third long
player) sits alongside the likes of Mercury Rev and The Flaming Lips;
across its 15 tracks its glides effortlessly on with a confident grace,
punctuated by a series of shorter musical vignettes (Egg-shaped,
Sleeper, But Youve Always Been The Pilot, How And Why Our Dads
Lost The War).

A collection of middle-tempo, grand, orchestral numbers make up the
bulk of the album, each one drawing in the listener with an of opening
of delicate pianos and fragile vocals before a raft of brass, strings,
guitars and all manner of synthesizers enter the fold creating blankets
of comforting, lush, space-rock. And thats the musical theme that
permeates the record; explicitly on the so-ELO-it-hurts Yours Truly,
2095? (Maybe some day Ill feel her cold embrace / Ill kiss her
interface), with nods to Ziggy-era Bowie on Heres A Star, and on
Dayplanner, which with its pedal steel, squelching synths and
saxophone solo, could easily have been lifted from Dark Side Of The
Moon.

On penultimate track Final Chapter Meeting, Jean-Michel Jarre bleeps
and pieces dance around a foreboding vocal: Sounds like plague / seems
like everybodys got something. The track builds to a four bar
repetition, every cycle bringing new elements: a chorus of vocal
euphoria, walls of distorted guitar punctuate the bottom, while a group
of horns play over and over until they lose control.

To think that The Silent League are an on again/off again collective is
beguiling when the output is this accomplished. What they present here
is an album of such accomplished majesty and width, unashamedly nodding
to its influences that stands shoulder to shoulder with any
contemporary comparisons. This is hairs on the back of your neck stuff.
