Album Notes
The Sympathetics are a do-it-yourself band.
A trio with three song writers, the group recorded their debut album in one apartment and mastered it in another.
With its acoustic lead guitar, electric bass, three-part harmonies and light-but-tight drums, the self-titled record is a mellow mix of pop, indie, country and, admittedly, folk.
"Proverb," written by guitarist Justin Dullum (creator of solo album "Gravity"), takes a musical page from the book of Simon and Garfunkel, and a lyrical page from the Bible in a pretty song with an ugly image: a stampede of greedy people. But Dullum doesn't put on self-righteous airs: "Hey, wait for me," goes the chorus.
"Fine Wine," written by bassist Rob Kuznia, is a washy number evoking characters like a seasoned firefighter, a beer-bellied fitness instructor and a little-leaguer who hits a grand slam.
"Homies," "Banana Boy" and "Monkees," conceived by former Mason Jennings Band drummer Edgar Oliveira, are straight-up pop, and have been known to make grown men dance.
The trio is recording a second album in the band's rehearsal space -- a garage too small to house a car.
As for the bandmates, two grew up in North Dakota; the drummer was born in Brazil. They spent a lot of time together in Minneapolis, but nowadays eke it out in Santa Barbara.
