Album Notes
It's 3am. The street is silent. Nothing but the lush sounds of passing cars on the nearby high street. In an apartment seperated from the rest of the world, a man faces a midnight of the soul and comes out triumphant on the other side of the night. This is the essence of "Outreach", the fourth Marching Band album, and as Oren Raab describes it, the best album the band has released so far.

The Marching Band has been a solo outfit for Oren Raab since 1998, when he's decided he wants to form a band all by his own. Between 1998 and 2001, The Marching Band has released 4 albums, 2 EP's and one single. "Outreach", the fourth and most accomplished album, has become the first one to be distributed for sale.

In May 2004, The Marching Band has joined Misc, an Israeli organization dedicated to promote and help Israeli musicians singing in English, through live shows, networking and strategic help. The organization has created a line of monthly live evenings featuring Misc bands, two of which The Marching Band performed in, organized a festival, received national media attention, including a large, 3-page article in the culture section of a daily newspaper read by hundreds of thousands of people in Israel, and has ceased activity in May 2005.

The Marching Band, following a year away from music, is going back to record the elusive fifth album, now titled "Airports for Shadows", and hopes to be able to release it sometime in 2007.

"This is Pink Floyd plus a classical opera feel and minus the flying pigs... Just when you're drifting along on the melody, a jarring guitar crunch and squeal catches you off guard. Nothing is safe. But that's part of what makes it all so real... Many of these tracks create such an atmosphere: dangerous and seductive at the same time. Raab is more than a songwriter; he's an intelligent composer." Jennifer Layton, indie-music.com

Leonard Cohen

Experimental/ethereal mood music for listening in a darkened room with a glass of wine. I sense an eclectic mix of influences: from Kurt Weill to David Bowie to the Velvet Underground. The vocals are delivered in an extremely hushed tone so that the lyrics are often undecipherable...but perhaps that doesn't much matter. On this CD it's the atmoshperics that carry you away.

Rachel Bradford

Excellent music from a new artist!
When I first heard this CD, I had to own it. It's completely unique and worth owning. I don't know much about music, but I would say that this artist has excellent composition skills! My favorite is The Scarecrow's Lament

The Fidler

One of the best
This band undoubtedly has mass knowledge and understanding in music. they combine the different notes and sounds in a very harmonical way which surprises the listener in places of the song that he / she expects the least. The singer has a deep and unique voice which matches this kind of music prfectly. Lets sum it up by saying that if music was dog shit this would be one smelly Mother F***er!!!
I don't know about you, but I already got my self a copy.
