Album Notes
From Louisville, Kentucky, The Pennies finally return after a several year hiatus to release the long-awaited follow up to their critically acclaimed
debut "Come, We Go" (1999). The 10 songs run the gamut from lush, psychedelic space rock to film-noir swing while passing through the terrain in-between. The
album is all the more impressive due to the fact that it was produced and recorded in singer/songwriter JEREMY PODGURSKY's home on a PRO TOOLS rig the band invested in. Co-produced by PODGURSKY and KEVIN COULTAS (RODAN, RACHELS, SONORA PINE, COME), the album's multiple layers and PODGURSKY'S kaleidoscopic
orchestrations reflect a true labor of love (although most would consider two years of recording/mixing and a year of unsatisfactory mastering jobs to be a breech birth!).

While the status of the band has been one of "indefinite hiatus", there are plans for a series of shows to celebrate this release. But the four year
delay of release has proven 10,000 THINGS to be ahead of the curve. Before other Louisville bands were experimenting with rock and roll's boundaries in bigger arenas, THE PENNIES were doing so tucked away in the basement by their own standards. The result is a full-blown, cinematic collection of songs unlike any
you have ever heard. From the synth swells of Track 1 to the spine-tingling string orchestra on TRACK 9, THE PENNIES cover more ground on one CD than most bands do in their whole lifespan.

Charles Ipswich

One of the most adventurous, sincere rock albums I've heard!
This CD is as colorful and transcendent as its artwork. The songs run the gamut from lush, psychedelic pop (Moontides and Lullabies) to indie-swing (Ivy) to Thor's hammer (Athena's Up for Hire). The instruments used are incredibly colorful and the performances are top-notch. The lyrics are true poetry that traverse such themes as isolation, universal consciousness, and love. But the most important part is that the harmonies and melodies are beautiful and unforgettable. This band could be absolutely huge!

Leo Weekly (Peter Berkowitz)

compositions and performances go beyond rock ’n’ roll and leap out of the speake
For a band that broke up four years ago, The Pennies are releasing one of the freshest, most vibrant records in recent memory. The purposefully, dreamily, zanily off-kilter pop/rock band flaunted plenty of wicked riffs and killer hooks on their first album, 1999’s Come, We Go. Fans of the Flaming Lips, who marveled at the band’s growth, will find themselves in similar territory here.

They could still kick out a Pixies-style rave-up like “Where Crows Attack” (smartly aided by Liberation Prophecy's Jacob Duncan praying at the church of Albert Ayler) and sci-fi krautrock, but score even more impressively with some percussive ballads structured and textured in the later style of a Grandaddy or Mercury Rev. Strings, horns and keyboards expand the songs out of the nightclub and onto the stage, revealing a composer equally familiar with Sondheim and Sonic Youth.

Bandleader Jeremy Podgursky and his then-colleagues did what few accomplish — his compositions and performances go beyond rock ’n’ roll and leap out of the speakers, flying away with wonder and excitement and the question of what is and what could have been ...
