ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Strange guitar openings that seem to either emanate from southern California, or they are California dreaming. Bethany Curve's music is strange, dynamic, and thoughtful. They seem to have all of the qualities of a rock band, not to mention they share much of the same instrumentation, but Bethany Curve comes off sounding like Depech Mode's David Gahan singing behind a wall of very, very dense distorted guitar. The music is actually very interesting. At first listen you're almost ready for one of those generic lead guitar riffs, ala Staind or one of the other bands that happened to score a hit after being on the Ozz Fest tour, but then the recording opens up to something else entirely. Bethany Curve's You Brought Us Here actually sounds quite a bit like the work of Radiohead, as they share some of the same artistic and musical values and then wrap them up into a piece that is both accessible and easily listenable. Bethany Curve is a unique outfit and one whose music fits neatly just the other side of the pop music periphery, which is very refreshing. Bethany Curve's You Brought Us Here is a stellar recording, and one that certainly delivers a quality and engaging listening experience. This recording is so wonderful that easily deserves All Music Guide pick status. Excellent! - Matt Borghi (All Music Guide)

Liquidy, swirling, buoyant guitars envelop this spacey, wave-like songwriting; images of underwater marvels come to mind; bright colors, a world of blues and greens separated by curtains of rippling sun rays, meandering through the depths of dark and light. An absolute must for followers of Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine and The Cure, this album is will detach you from your woes in its cool, spacious, circling beauty.

Bethany Curve-You Brought Us Here
This outfit wields an otherwordly knack for evoking a singular feeling of isolation,and it has to do with the suggestion of spaciousness.Dissonant drones and sweeping atmospherics collude to instill what begins as a daunting sense of agoraphobia.But as you become upswept in the majesty of the expanse they weave,agoraphilia supersedes dread.The MASTERFUL amalgam of their influences coalesces on no other release of theirs as triumphantly as here.It's as if Angelo Badalamenti overdosed on 'Losing Today'-era Slowdive and stole the recipe for creative chaos from Flying Saucer Attack!'Summer Left Me' and 'Ann Illusion' are perhaps unprecedented examples of the perfect alchemy of dark ambience and shoegaze.

Layers upom layers of grey creep across my mind when i hear this cd. Such profound sounds coming from this little plastic disc. Great great band, different yet the same as Gold and flaxen but still bethany curve we just see that in this disc they further themselves into the shadows they created with their guitars and vocals. i highly highly recommend it

Simply Amazing! One of the BEST shoegaze albums ever released.
At first I thought Gold was better but oh was I wrong. This CD is absolutely flawless. It creates such a blissed out, sleepy atmosphere that you'll never want to leave. Highly Recommended!!!!!!!

Swirling ambient sky-music
If you like My Bloody Valentine, Falling You, Low,and other dark swirly ambient or shoegazer pop sensations, you'll like this. This is beyond guitar-ambient, a gorgeous complex world of waves, peaks and troughs of sound. A melancholy, shimmery, relaxing achievement, this album. It is for an audio equivalent of the sight of sunlight on water.
