Mobius Band short circuits keyboards, lands album in Hank


The Mobius Band are set to release their new album “Heaven” and after listening to it – it’s the far and away the best work I have heard from them. I can’t tell you how amazing this record is, beyond that – instrumental versions are also available of all the new songs!! The album is poppy, experimental and is laden with amazing hooks and swells. One of the most unique sounds is the sound that they played with on this album – short circuiting keyboards. Hard to explain, great to listen to – check it out.

Grand National in Billboards Top 25 of 2007

Grand National Drink/Quick Decision Cover Art

Billboard has listed Grand National as one of the Top 25 Indie albums you should check out this year!! What’s better? They are not the only ones who have some nice things to say about our friends – have a look at some of the press below!
“An indie rocker’s idea of Saturday Night Fever.”Billboard

“Club music this subtle and tender should be savored just as it is.”NY Daily News

“Lead single “By The Time I Get Home…” sounds where Ian Brown should have gone after Golden Greats, with baby ass-smooth synth lines propelled by a synthetic Caribbean steel plate hook and Lower East Side street-walkin’ attitude.”

“Grand National’s stylistic diversity and uplifting, unmistakably British flavor have the kind of staying power that will outlast the hyphenated dance fads”Flaunt

“Grand National mixes doses of Madchester, house and the romantic-pop of ’80s new wave. It’s progressive dance music with a soul”

A Drink & A Quick Decision is the kind of album you’d hear while enjoying cocktails in an über hip lounge. This album is suitable for all moods, whether you want to mindlessly let the beats take over you while driving, dancing around in your room, or crying in the corner”The Tripwire

“Taking another step towards yacht rock supremacy, this UK duo’s second album has lost some of the poppy jangle found on their debut. But it is replaced with grander harmonies and gauzier production, making this smooth as John Oat’s bare upper lip these days”URB

“A Drink and a Quick Decision positions Grand National as an important artistic force that is far from exhausting its seemingly bottomless wellspring of inspiration.”

“One of 2007′s best ballads, with a stark acoustic guitar strummed against a smart pair of rhythmic backdrops.” Referring to “Joker And Clown”Stylus Magazine
