Pure and simple, it's Billy Zoom's guitar work! Spread The Feeling by Pernice Brothers. Hook laden, jangly guitar rock that I really, really like. I could easily have picked from 4 or 5 other songs as a favorite.
Discovered via weekly bandcamp recommendation email. You were a Dick by idaho. The sparks began to burn instead of shimmer. Sarah Fortin. The Ascension by Sufjan Stevens. This compilation album features Peruvian artists from a cross-section of genres including experimental, shoe gaze, and indie rock.

Deep inside, this is truly music of longing, of desire But they also have a curious apathy about life itself--"Sometimes it's good to be alive, sometimes it's all right" they sing.
Not for nothing have some called American Music Club's music 'sadcore. The rich lushness of the music along with Eitzel's mournful voice invite you to sit down with them at the seedy corner bar of life and commiserate about life's personal injustices, albeit in a supremely poetic fashion.
And just like those guys at the corner bar, there LP flashes of humor here and there, self-deprecating as it may be. The pathos is muted by the absurdity of the situation, and it's among the album's highlights. Other great songs on the album include "Can You Help Me" and "Cape Canaveral," but really, there's not a miss in the bunch.
American Music Club is leading a career of quiet desperation, no doubt, but the song is out there to be shared. An excellent album. Donald E. Gilliland Top Contributor: Rock Music. I'll get slammed by the 5-star fans, but here's my take LP this album: I don't think it ever quite clicks, at least not often enough to declare it some sort of masterpiece. Lead singer Mark Eitzel is one of those artists that wears his heart on his sleeve, but the emotional intensity of many of his songs is often too much for me to handle.
I appreciate the sincerity and honesty in the lyrics, but that shouldn't leave the song bereft of all melody and musical dynamics. And that happens too often on this album. I'm one of those shallow fans that prefer the uptempo tunes like "It's Your Birthday" and the radiant "Wish the World Away" oddly described in the main review as a "Pepsi Generation power anthem"and the clever "Hello Amsterdam. As for the band's cover of "California Dreaming" which, contrary to one review, is certainly on here; it's the "hidden track" at the end, but not listedthis could be the only version of that song ever recorded where the singer sounds absolutely miserable.
Sorry, guys, but if you want to drown in your misery I'm not throwing you a lifeline. Just because the production is a bit more "slick", it doesn't mean that the band's skills have become less important or less notable. Ok, there's a definite alternative-feel throughout the record while their previous efforts were more "indie" and maybe AMC were consciously changing direction but they're a great band and on San Francisco, just like on Album) of their records, it shows!
Mark Eitzel is great as usual and there are great songs all over the album Admittedly I love anything AMC has put out. It's the one I recommend to friends who haven't listened to AMC before. This band's music is intelligent and well-crafted--the kind of music you don't necessarily hear all of the first time you put it in the player i.

American Music Club reformed (Mark Eitzel, Dan Pearson, Tim Mooney, Mark "Vudi" Pankler, and newcomer multi-instrumentalist Marc Capelle instead of Kaplan) and released Love Songs For Patriots (Devil In The Woods, ), but the album is more a showcase for Eitzel's (mediocre) lyrics than for the band's music. American Music Club earned a solid cult following in Europe on the strength of 's California. Their next LP, 's United Kingdom, was a UK-only release comprising new material, some of which was recorded live at the Hotel Utah in San Francisco.
