Red Sea Station - Alphabet City Swagger on a Sunday in Glasgow

We recorded 5 hours of music, 40 songs or so, and kept it all a secret, until now. Recorded in 4 cities over the course of a year and a bit. From the hilltops of Golden Hill in San Diego to the burbs of Detroit, sounds from the streets of Brooklyn and the thousand year alleyways of Cairo. This is a sampling of songs from a 40 song/5 hour/6000 mile music project due to be released soon. 

Here's what some have said so far: 

"Gleeful, fuzzed-out guitar pop that seems to be perpetually watching the sun break out of the clouds" 

"politically tinged dream pop" 

"Groovy, well-produced, slightly wistful, and often pretty in a pleasantly dishevelled way." 

"Fun quirky indie that rocks as well as charm" 

"A gorgeous melange of small, revolving melodic motifs coming from every direction and all united in their connection to the solid backbone of sprightly, rubbery beats."

This song popped into my head the other day. It really is a great tune. I'm giving it 5 stars in retrospect. There's just a charm about it that makes me remember it. You guys are very good.

I think this song has a great psych-folk vibe that reminds me of Davendra Banhart, and oddly enough, The Kinks. I really like what you guys are up to, and that odd bend in the guitar playing.

I hear lots of different cool influences in there. But it's pretty original, taking from different influences to make something new. I think you are from England.

itchybrother said it well. It's a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable tune. That break is so cool.

I love this song. The giddy up acoustic guitars are so cool. The doubled vocals (two different fellas I think?) are great. This is a near perfect song. I like how you in the break, you make it sound like the wheels are falling off the song, then you get into it again with the giddy up guitars.

I really do like this. It reminds me of Nada Surf's recent material. Good work on this!

Energetic... lyrically sparce-- sounds perfect for a intimate northwoods brewhouse bar.

I don't know if that's what you were going for, but, where I come from, that would be a HUGE compliment.
