Album Notes
the dambrots "this is someone else’s love" (the yellow album)

With the dambrots fourth release "this is someone else’s love", they've taken the diverse elements of their sound, and gone off in all directions at once. Stylistically, the album swings from the harmony filled folk rock of “sweetly”, to the pop-punk of “circle”, to the straight rock of “winter", to the ukulele driven “sea of blue”.

After recording their first three albums at New Jersey’s renowned Trax East Studios with producer Eric Rachel, al james and dawn marie decided to take a new approach with this album. Recorded at Dirt Floor Studios in the woods of Connecticut with producer Eric Lichter, the dambrots took a very spontaneous approach to the recording, capturing the tracks in one to two takes, preserving the intimacy and immediacy of each song.

the dambrots tradition of mixing things up instrumentally continues with this album. al james played many of vintage keyboards, including a Fender Rhodes, a Univox, and even a Little Tykes brand toy piano from the 1980s.

the dambrots released their first CD especially not love in 2003, and declared then that they would record a total of eight CDs, one for each color in their logo. With this fourth yellow album, they've reached the half-way point in their musical journey.

"the dambrots are a refreshing blend of catchy indie pop and heartfelt acoustic honesty. Cathartically foot tapping!"
– Rear Window Radio / Toronto, Ontario, Canada

"Like the Beatles "White Album", a simple cover can have so much more meaning. the dambrots' album covers are plain to the eye, but their vibrant colors express their pleasant sound. the dambrots use vicious lyrics encrypted in beautiful, harmonious vocals, that could lull you to dream and make you weep dry. Complexly structured rhythms disguised as simple are the perfect accompaniment to this new and upcoming Folk/Pop duo. Nice on the ears, nice on the soul."
- Mike Flegar, Mid-Day Host on WHCS 590 AM New York City

"I like what I hear (of the dambrots music)... I love dawn marie's voice...Trends always come and go, but singing and songwriting will always win at the end of the day."
-New York City Radio legend Ken Dashow, of Q104.3

"One of the most impressive acoustic CDs in recent years, the dambrots' debut CD 'especially not love' marks them as a band to watch."
- CD World's Muzine Magazine - June 2003 - Feature about the dambrots debut CD especially not love

“When you find yourself deep in the depths of heartache from a breakup, find a band such as the dambrots. Their words will echo back to you as if they are your own.”
- Bitterslut.com - who recently ranked 2 dambrots songs among the 10 Best Breakup Songs

"New Jersey natives dawn marie and al james have a good thing going with their mass production music house of a band called the dambrots. So far, they've released (four) discs, all with the same art, all different colors on their quest to release eight discs, one for each color in the dambrots logo... they show off their art, a sort of acoustic simplicity that comes with built in harmonies and stripped down melodies. Haunting at times they can easily turn up the pace and arrange a pop sound.
The long and short of it… a great listen, nicely packaged and enjoyable."
Independents Only (www.independentsonly.com)

"Delightful and tuneful. I fell in love with the dambrots song tracy wants to know in under 2 minutes, from hearing the first chord!
Nice singing & playing... wide range of instrumentation too.
I'll definitely be spinning some of the tracks in the coming weeks/months."
-Mark Watkins, DJ of The Mark Watkins Music Show Blast 1386, Reading, Berkshire, England

Best Dambrots CD Yet!
This Is Someone Else's Love is by far my favorite Dambrots album. The combination of Dawn's vocals and Al's music has never been more complimentary to each other. They come together in a very honest way which is missing from alot of current releases. "Lost Again" moved me as much as any track
I've heard in ages.

This is such a beautiful record..I put it on, lay back, and then relax.....


Love this CD!
Lots of great stuff on this CD - There's a nice balance of textures, not too much, not too little. The words and music are always so introspective, and often heartbreakingly sad. Yet there is an unusual peacefulness and calm there that seems surprising at times. And the songs are sung beautifully.
