ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kingdom of Mustang is a sonic collaboration of seasoned musicians from Charlottesville, VA who first came together to perform songs from Mark Roebuck's critically acclaimed 2016 album release “The World and All Within.” After a series of concerts showcasing the album, members of the band began working together on a more collaborative project, Kingdom of Mustang.
Kingdom of Mustang is built on the songwriting of both Mark Roebuck and Tim Ryan, and the current project also features Rusty Speidel and Michael Clarke. Clarke, on drums, was a Deal bandmate of Roebuck’s back in the day, and Speidel, here on guitar and soaring vocals, has made hay for many years with the widely popular acoustic groups SGG&L and the Michael Clem Trio. In addition to being known as the creative engine behind the iconic power pop group The Deal, Roebuck has also made records with Big Circle [with Speidel], Sub-Seven, and Dave Matthews. Ryan, when not making excellent recordings in his studio, has played bass with such diverse groups as The Gladstones and Curtis Prince and The Clairvoyants.
Together, they have created modern power pop rock with soaring vocals, driving, chiming guitars and intricate and beautiful harmonies. The music is melodic and memorable, with lyrics that puzzle and penetrate. Have a listen.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND
This is a spirit-lifting album. It is accessible and challenging from the get-go. In the departments of melody and lyrics, inter-agency memos must have been intense, because they are one with another. Where did the crashing beautiful power-pop dreams from all the best eras go? To the Kingdom of Mustang. Wailing, soulful expressive guitar solos, interwoven with REAL drum licks masterfully delivered by Clarke, lift this album above the clouds. Roebuck, Ryan, Speidel, et. al. collaborate beautifully in vocal expression as well. Though mostly new compositions, there are three deep-catalogue gems beautifully re-imagined here. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Strong Recommendation
I am riveted by the self-assured melodicism and power of this record., in particular the title song that is the opening track of the album. There are 17 songs, and each and every one is an ear-catching success that works coherently to support and sustain the rest..

Love this record
heard about this album from a friend .... what a cool collection of tunes. kinda power-pop, kinda rock, with bits of Big Star, Beach Boys, REM, the dB's. Every song works. on its own, while the whole bunch works great as a collection. Tight, punchy, sweet, with plenty of ear worms.

Loved it
I Remember when I was young and made sense of the world through music because it spoke for me and helped to define me. The Beatles, The Birds, Big Star, The Posies, many bands of the eighties—all produced songs in which I could live fully within the parameters of an entire experience in under five minutes. This joyous CD by Kingdom of Mustang allowed me to jump into just such an ineffable experience. 17 songs of airtight, soaring jangle pop so compelling, I knew from the eponymous first tune that I was right in the midst of my next musical obsession. And I’m still in it. I can’t get off this CD. And Mark Roebuck’s vocal delivery of measured breath as he searches for the note, finds it, tries it on for a spell, then commits to it gets me every time. I love every song, and each works separately as part of a glorious, masterfully arranged, beautifully produced, intelligent whole. At too many junctures through this work of art, I think, “Here’s my favorite song: Love Lost Love; no, it’s Satin Rag; wait, it’s Malkin.” Kingdom of Mustang is THAT kind of project. It’s an uplifting ride for musician and layperson alike, and exemplary of why we listen to music in the first place: we want to be ignited, we want to be transported, inspired, awed, thrilled. I know already that these songs will never grow old, they will simply deepen, as good songs do. I can not commend Kingdom of Mustang enough, beyond my enthusiastic recommendation. Get hold of Kingdom of Mustang now, you’ll hear exactly what I mean!
