Burnside Album Details

Tomten, Wednesday's Children CD

Brian Noyeswatkins, Lena Simon, Jake Brady, and Gregg Belisle-Chi grew up in Monterey, Los Angeles, and Seattle, respectively. They absorbed all the timeless and elegant classic LPs they could get their hands on (favorites include: all things Big Star, XO and Either/OR, Hunky Dory, and Rubber Soul). They met each other at art school, and started crafting sweetly and subversive pop songs with sweeping organ, reverbed guitars, and resplendent harmonies. With a sound both familiar and new they've played Pacific NW festivals, a week of shows in Iceland, and have toured the West Coast. "A unique pearl. The Seattle quartet's fluid and dreamy pop is theatrical and unexpectedly lovely." -The Stranger"This young band's second album is an impressive set of well-crafted indie-pop steeped in the music of 60s girl groups and British bands, with a variety of impeccably arranged songs." -KEXP
