ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dreamy and mesmerizing, the soundscapes of Saint Augustine will take you back to that long-ago afternoon when you laid down in the dark to listen to that new LP. Nothing was more important than this: taking the time to let the music wash over you and absorb every note. You might have paused at the end of the first side, letting it all soak in before getting up to flip the disk over.

This album is not a couple of pop songs separated by filler, but a complete work meant to be experienced as a whole. Each song can stand on its own, but together they combine to form a story like the chapters of a favorite book.

Saint Augustine’s distinctive sound is the product of four individual approaches to making music. Each member of the band is largely self-taught, and this background leaves them with the freedom to experiment and create without bias or preconceived ideas. Airy, ethereal vocals, melodic bass hooks, layers of textured guitars, and deft, versatile drumming combine to form the unique and engaging Saint Augustine rock sound.

“I've always appreciated the colors in paintings more than the subject,” says bassist Alex, who names The Cure's "Disintegration" as his favorite LP to spin in the dark. And the instrumental is the focal point. “There are songs I've heard (and performed) dozens or hundreds of times to which I do not know all the words,” he admits.

For Barry, lead guitarist, it’s a bit more complicated. Responsible for Saint Augustine’s lyrical landscape, he creates characters in an intricate world. These personalities move through musical settings that are multi-layered and symphonic. These characters may have come to him as a teen, as he lay in the dark listening to classical LPs or “Synchronicity” by The Police. The details of these haunted lives developed as he scraped to make a living as a young man in New York City.

Scott remembers listening to Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” really cranked sitting in his friend's pickup truck equipped with a super kick-ass stereo system. He was moved by the engulfing sound of “Run Like Hell” which has strongly influenced his use of guitar effects as a tool to create atmosphere.

Jimmie’s drumming style has developed over the years through his wide experience of playing rock, country, and metal. His versatility, creativity, and range are evident in his stylistic choices, from gentle and subtle to powerful and driving.
