Album Notes
Nectarphonic was born out of the philosophy that less is more. With an atmospheric, groove approach, the songs sound like Portishead and The Cocteau Twins had carnal knowledge. Created in the summer of 1999, the band believes that space within music is crucial and that what is "not" played is as important as what "is" played.

Residing in Los Angeles, California, the band decided to record their music so they wouldn't forget it when Ken Lee took off to Morocco for two months. Nectarphonic's musical approach is something that people are really responding to.

With a traditional line-up of guitar, keyboards, bass & drums, the song writing approach is based on improvisation as well as thought out ideas. In a musical universe that seems to be dominated by the guitar power-pop crunch, Nectarphonic's music can definitely let the listener breathe.

Besides cd sales rising and club bookers ringing the phone off the hook, Nectarphonic has licensed the songs "Will I" & "The One" for a film! Nectarphonic's music can also be heard on the MTV show Road Rules Challenge as well as multiple other T.V. shows. The Nectarphonic song The One In Three was also used in an episode of the T.V. show Felicity.

Nectarphonic is:
Judy Neubauer-Vocals & Guitar
Ustad Khan Ali- Guitar & Keyboards
Adam Passow- Bass
Lorenzo Scott- Drums & Percussion

Simply Stunning
"If you was hit by a truck and you was lying out there in that gutter dying, and you had time to sing *one* song. Huh? One song that people would remember before you're dirt. One song that would let God know how you felt about your time here on Earth. One song that would sum you up. What song would you play?" - Dallas Roberts as Sam Phillips in "Walk The Line"

For me, that song would be "Undone" by Nectarphonic. But more on that in a moment.

When describing unearthly objects one may invoke the following adjectives to paint an image: spacial, hypnotic, surreal, entrancing, celestial and ethereal. The same adjectives come to mind while listening to Satellite, the outstanding release from Nectarphonic.

Satellite is a seductive and intoxicating groove, grandiose rock bordering on psychedelia - an aurally orgasmic experience. The blistering bass lines of Adam Passow are incredible on the songs "Will I" and "Beautiful And Pitiful" and downright scorching on "Hands".

My favorite track is "Undone", an intelligently written and highly intoxicating piece featuring Ustad Khan Ali's stunning guitar and keyboard work. Judy Neubauer's haunting vocals shine on this song as well and the back line work of percussionist Lorenzo Scott is genuinely amazing. "Undone" is so good that if it were the last song I ever heard I could die completely satisfied.

I don't want to take away from the other tracks on this CD. Believe me, there is not one disappointing song. "Circles" and "Satellite", the title track, are outstanding cuts.

The work of Nectarphonic has been described as the love child of Pink Floyd and The Cocteau Twins. While that may be true, it may also be too limiting. Listen to the guitar work on "Beautiful & Pitiful" and I guarantee the first thing that will pop into your head is Jimi Hendrix. This is a CD that EVERYONE should have in their collection. This band is so good I may fly to Los Angeles simply to watch them perform live.
