ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Look Mom '" no pro tools. As with their debut Make A Friend LP (2004 Poison Pen Records), West Coast indie-rock artists Recliner recorded and mixed Tranquilizer entirely analog for a warm, buttered-bacon sound that tone freaks everywhere will enjoy sinking their ears into. And while the contagious hooks and driving rhythms are still there in heaps, Tranquilizer finds the band exploring a more confident range of headspace - from the melancholy 'Leaving Hollywood' to the frenetic 'Float Away.'

Recliner also increased their sound palette this time around, relaxing their guitars/bass/drums formula to include bassoon, Wurlitzer, and yes, even a Juno 60 synthesizer. Memorable backing vocals are also provided compliments of the Hill sisters from We Are Invisible (weareinvisible.com). The result is a fuller, multi-dimensional sound that reveals a little more with each listen.

Considering that Recliner’s Make A Friend CD spawned two nationally-recognized videos (Fuse TV, RollingStone.com), as well as licensing tracks for three MTV show soundtracks and the platinum-selling ESPN 2K5 series of video games, Tranquilizer has a lot to live up to. One listen should prove that it’s more than up to the challenge.

some Recliner reviews:

"It's kind of unavoidable to like Recliner because the tracks are just so catchy." --Left Off The Dial (.com)

"Recliner's sense of energy and off-kilter sense of humor are airborne infectious. Recliner is to music what Viagra is to--well, you get the idea."
--Score Music Magazine

"The band's popularity in the Bay Area has been built on high-energy shows and musical tightness, as well as the fact that singer/guitarist Kevin Seidel is one of the best rock vocalists I've heard in a long time. Recliner very well could be 'The Next Big Thing' out of San Francisco."
--The Davis Enterprise Newspaper

"...Their catchy, pounding, defiant, neurotic performance will make you want to shake your ass--believe me, take it from this ass."
--Jet, KUSF 90.3 FM, San Francisco

Positive, uplifting & highly enjoyable rock music
The compositions are thick and muscular and very enjoyable. Rhythmically the music is very well-played. There is not a single bad or average track on the album. All the songs are great. This is positive uplifting music. It can be used as party music and also as wake-up music during quiet morning hours. Without exaggerating I can sincerely declare that "Tranquilizer" is the finest rock album I have heard in many years. In a world of digital where most music sounds
mechanical, cold and digitally sterile, Recliner's music is like a breath of fresh air.

The CD has a very fat and warm analog sound; very smooth sound while still retaining a slight rough edge that gives the music its necessary bite and attack. I love it! There is lots of clarity in the mix with a good amount of seperation between the instruments.

From the recording to the mixing to the mastering and to the music itself, I am very impressed with all aspects of the production. This is the way rock music should sound.
