ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
3 Music Technology graduate girls + 1 classical percussionist/drummer + 1 guitar playing doctor + electric guitar playing drummer/mixing engineer = We Know Someone!

The summer of 2013 found Useless Beauty recording their second full-length CD entitled We Know Someone, inspired by the generosity of the many kind and talented people they’ve met along the way. The majority of the album was recorded live at The Fort Brooklyn by the late Jim Bentley (a beloved fixture of the city’s indie rock scene), co-mixed by Carlos Fonseca and mastered by Alex Saltz at APS Mastering in NYC (Vampire Weekend, The Stooges, R.E.M., Moby, Andrew W.K.). With the addition of two core musicians -- drummer/percussionist Rob Knopper and bassist Katie Lopez -- this album delves into Useless Beauty’s louder rock side and lets them loose to be more fun, energetic and danceable than ever before. From the Motown-on-speed intro on opening track “Race Into Your World”, to the funky drum-and-bass exchange in “Praying Kind”, to the playful bounce of “Hey Bob” (inspired by a dream of a visit from an angel who looked like Bob Dylan), to the epic, heart-wrenching ballad “Not Love”, there is no doubt that Useless Beauty continues to evolve and grow in new and exciting ways.
