Rain Home
My husband and daughter and I listened to rain home and enjoyed the variety in style. Our daughter who is 16 plays percussion and guitar and was inspired. Guess who is keeping the cd in her collection? Thanks for telling us about your band Anthony!

Iowa State Daily (Katie Piepel)

"Rain Home" is as original and diverse as they come.
Shelter Belt has done something brilliant. Transforming itself into a magnitude of musical genres from one song to the next, the band will never bore you on its latest, "Rain Home."

The reasons behind this are solid ones. The fact that the seven members of the electro-pop band often swap lead vocals and instruments, never staying consistent on who gets what, keeps the creativity alive.

Playing around with electronics (ranging from guitars to chimes), screaming brass sections and unpredictable string arrangements, Shelter Belt will keep you on your toes.

Recorded and produced entirely by the band members in their home studio, "Rain Home" is infused with lively sounds of salsa, ragtime, '80s synth pop, moody jazz and slow rock, to name a few.

The spicy title track "Rain Home" dances around a Latin beat, infusing blaring horns and layers of zesty percussion, while the more subdued "Surface" slinks along with band member Jesse Otto's soft vocals and the accompanying hum of piano and accordion.

The mysterious "All these Days" begins with a slow pop beat, fooling the listener when it suddenly breaks out into full ragtime piano and bubbly brass spurts.

Catchy, optimistic choral vocals provided by the rest of the band and a few guest musicians add to the delightful quirkiness of this tune.

More than one track on "Rain Home" carries an '80s dance pop groove. "Sad Thing" sounds like it was pulled from Michael Jackson's "Thriller," and electric guitars and bouncy drums bop along to Otto and Rachel Hospodka's yearning vocals on the playful "In this Place."

By the end of the album, the band comes down from its high, producing softer, darker pieces. The ending track, "Rust," crawls through eerie guitars and space basses while electronic pulses and taunting vocals complete the enigmatic tone.

Whether experimenting with flavorful Latin grooves or moody jazz, "Rain Home" is as original and diverse as they come.

Someday Never (Joe Vavak)

Eclectic and original
The disc is perhaps the most eclectic and original album to be released in the area over the past couple years. It's hard to even describe the Belt's sound, as they change gears time and time again. Some of the disc has this crazy 80's vibe to it, with a driving beat and almost danceable tempo, while other parts are much more slow and moody, complete with tremendously soulful vocals. I am confident that Rain Home will catch many people by surprise once they hear it, especially anyone who just loves good music.
