But the record's sparkling sound takes Juliet Mission only so far. Employing a uniformly forlorn aesthetic—and an obvious nostalgia for '80s pseudo-goth bands like Cocteau Twins or The Cure—the band hovers around walking-pace tempos and keeps its dynamic range relatively flat. Ultimately, this makes for an EP that feels more like a collection of pop singles than it does an album with arc and shape. "Cage" is an exception and is all the stronger for it, revving up the band's pace just a few clicks into a driving beat, laying a solid foundation for Andre Lucero's memorable vocal melody. It will be interesting to see what Juliet Mission can do with a full-length album—the EP serves as a pleasant preamble, much more about a feel and aura than a stroke of compositional prowess.By Crawford Philleo November 24, 2009
ORiiiON is an independently produced music theater project. The musical approach is heavy, groove based, melodic, and contemporary. The combination of 7 string guitars, fat slap bass lines, gnarly pocket drum grooves, and huge electronic tracks will shake the foundations of the building as well as the listeners ideas of contemporary music. See it. Hear it. Feel it. Believe it. ORiiiON.
