ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
LOOP!STATION has recently emerged from the studio with a pocketful of potent tunes. And if you dont know who they are yet, LOOP!STATION is your new favorite sonic drug, doled out by the stellar musical duo of Robin Coomer and Sam Bass. One woman, one man, one voice, one cello, multiple layered 'loops' hand tooled and shaped into lovely, cascading, provocative orchestral compositions with an immediate soul-rocking palpability.
LOOP!STATIONs latest release 'balance on what' is as dynamic as it is raw. Coomers voice packs the intensity of a siren wailing atop a speeding vehicle yet paridoxically lures you closer like the true sirens of old, tempting wandering hearts to dash themselves against salty rocks. Sam Bass matches her step for step, bowing his cello near to the breaking point as he mind bogglingly coaxes rich textures and layered themes ranging from chamber classical to rip torn rock out of just one instrument. Like falling in love at first sight with scattering crimson hot embers, LOOP!STATIONs music will dazzle you with its firey brilliance - and may just burn you to the core. Sol Crawford - amnesia

balance on what
I had the privilege of seeing Loop!Station perform two of the songs from this album at the San Jose Ballet. In order to appreciate these songs you must realize that Robin Coomer and Sam Bass create their complex, multi-tracked sounds without the benefit of recording studio technology. They have mastered the Loop Station technology, seamlessly weaving many musical lines into a coherent whole. Two people on stage, looping, adding, merging, until, if you close your eyes, you would swear that you're listening to an ensemble of ten.

Amazing on CD. Even better live.

And then you add to ballet.

Wow!

Emotionally Naked
This has some of the most amazing vocal recording of all the albums. Sounds like nice microphones and analog recording to me... The vocals sound like you are, hmm, very close to the source. There is a sweet rawness, and realness to the vocals that makes this something special. The lyrics I am quoting could be off a little, downloaded the album, so forgive.

Theory of Noise
Grooving Lines from Song, “Spent a life time warming up. You run like you know for sure. You, you, talk talk talk like you know and you sound like you know, but darling nobody ain’t nobody for sure”

The Last Time I Saw You
Grooving Lines from the song, “The last time I saw you, I nearly drank myself to death. I’m laughing at life watching as love passes by. You came so close I nearly lost my breath”

Healing music for everyone. We have all been there. Very personal stuff, sounds very emotionally naked. To be physically naked and not embarrass with another isn’t so hard. But to be emotionally naked has something to do with this song, and isn’t so easy. This song reminds me that in time scare tissue turns to tender wise strength if we get lucky... Nothing is for Nothing...

Wintertime sucks
Grooving Lines from Song, “Somewhere between your place and my house, maybe it took the window of love. Maybe I never knew where it was, so how am I to know where it is??? What if I say it again? Why don’t you say it again? Under a blanket of truth and light”

A very passionate song. Like sitting in a room with Robin Coomer and having her tell you an eclectic story about frustration and love. I imagine strong coffee involved and the Moon is just right. Sometimes when we try and describe verbally something truly sublime, we lesson it in the act. This song is just enough words not to do that, and the rest communicated musically and via the emotion of voice. Don’t try to understand just listen. Emotional twilight has many colors and stories. The Raven stole the Sun from the place this song is about.

Hello
Grooving Lines from Song, “I’m careful and I’m clumsy, you know my name”

Chasing
Grooving Lines from Song, “Hey now something haven’t you heard, I got a deep down something that hasn’t a word”

Alarm Shop
Grooving Lines from Song, “Water it falls, it drops, you got saturated. Just walk it off. The minutes are off at the alarm shop. World inside my head. So I’ll let my thoughts of you get the best of me”

Take Care,
Craig
