ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
POPPERMOST BIO

Poppermost is a freewheelin' indie pop music band and cartoon based in Las Vegas, Nevada. They have been voted Best of Las Vegas 2007 by the Las Vegas Review-Journal and listed as one of "Our picks for the best bands" in Las Vegas Weekly's annual music issue. Poppermost has amassed numerous awards and accolades for their music and skills as seasoned musicians, songwriters, and performers. Their purpose in life is to "capture ears, one song at a time." But suddenly, they are a trio of high-flying cartoon birds that teach pop music history, and help preserve music education. Hold on here! What happened?

It was just before Poppermost emerged from Trimordial Studio with their third full-length album. Bitter Suite Swan Songs is a wide and rich musical palate where power pop, choirboy harmonies, and orchestral passages rub shoulders with rock and folk music social commentary. The eclectic pop music diversity of Bitter Suite Swan Songs showcases some of the best Poppermost songs written to date. Like their debut album, the team of Alex Oliver and Roy Al Rendahl mans all the switches from writing, arranging, and performing to recording, mixing, and production. So, why interrupt 6 years of constant performing, recording, and writing to teach music history?

"A band isn't the only tool for promoting music; it's just the most obvious," says Alex Oliver, musical director for Poppermost and former teacher. "We decided to close the distance between our love for music, live performance, graphics, a deep personal concern for the gradual loss of music education in public schools, and the necessity of marketing. We're developing a fun, animated 'pop music history class' by mixing original Poppermost music, classic 60s / 70s style cartoons, and music education. Pop music isn't just entertainment; it's history, sociology, and a document of who we are as human beings."

Starting out as a duo on July 4, 2001, singer/ songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Alex Oliver joined forces with bassist and audio / graphics guru Roy Al Rendahl and freed themselves from a garage cover band in order to write and perform original music. During the next five years, their expanded versions of the band turned in blistering live performances. They have released two other full-length CDs (the mellow acoustic self-titled debut, and the daredevil power pop of Absolutely Sonic) plus numerous CD singles and extended-plays, which quickly became "must-haves" for flocks of indie pop music lovers all over the world. They also earned airplay globally on commercial and Internet radio while earning great reviews from the press and fans.

Poppermost is determined to win the ears of their fans as the band continues to increase their radio and Internet presence. As Jarret Keene of LV's CityLife says, "Can’t stop Poppermost!" No matter where the journey takes them, or in what form, Poppermost is working to make their own significant mark on pop music history.

Endearing stories are written in these fabulous songs!
Poppermost's 3rd full length cd shows maturity in the story telling & it gets the audience to listen to the endearing stories which are being told in each individual song; songs like Isabella Vina portray the growth of a beautiful child the melody of the song is intertwined with a potpourri of instruments; Forever Valentine- catchy & up beat chorus its a beautiful love song; Concentrate on me-a beach party/bonfire love song; Love Sweet Love- flashback to the 60's Partridge Family. Overall Bitter Suite Swan Songs is FABULOUS!

POPPERMOST ROCKS!!!!!
This album is brilliant, from start to finish. I remember first hearing "I Will Begin" on the bands MySpace profile about a year ago. I couldn't get enough of it. I had to go on there several times a day just to hear that song! Since then, I've been fortunate enough to be able to listen to their entire catalog of music. The new CD "Bitter Suite Swan Songs" is certainly their tour de force. I can't decide which song is my favorite, it keeps changing, but the songs "Bitter Suite", "Isabella Vina", "Swan" and of course "I Will Begin" are all masterpieces. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up. You will NOT regret it!! My only regret is that there aren't more than 5 starts to give it!

Outstanding Collection Of Tunes
With Bitter Swan Suite you get high octane power pop with outstanding harmonies and memorable melodies. Alex Oliver’s vocals and songwriting certainly take this group of tunes to a higher level. I’ve listened to the album many times and enjoy it all, but there are a few stand outs like “Concentrate On Me”, “Isabella Vina”, and “My Condition”. This one is a winner and now I’m anxiously awaiting the next full collection.
