The Well-Mannered Look

by Zombies of the Stratosphere

A cinematically rendered and relentlessly tuneful onslaught of British Invasion stomp, indie jangle, lush orch pop, and mild psychedelia--songs built to last by nerdily obsessive craftsmen with big record collections. You know: the good stuff.

Album Notes
Our heroes met at University, where they were bitter rivals. Years later, they found themselves in New York City, beavering away in dusty corners of the Great Media Behemoth: J put in time at a literary agency and studied the mystical art of making records while slaving as a sound engineer at various hip recording studios about town, while A avoided sunlight as a film archivist and curator at a broadcasting museum. Both had unsatisfying tenures in doomed rock combos where they nevertheless honed their musical skills. Each fancied himself a songwriter in the classic pop mode and pursued the elusive art with uncommon zeal, resting only for massive infusions of film noir and comic books. It was inevitable that they join forces and continue in the tradition of their idols Ray Davies, Elvis Costello, and Brian Wilson, i.e., churning out gem-like compositions with maddeningly infectious tunes and obscure lyrics while failing to deal with their crippling emotional problems. Watch this space for further instructions, people of Earth, and have a nice day.
