I tend to like bands that can create an atmosphere with their music. That atmosphere can be dark, energetic, spacey, sleepy etc. and my mood will determine whatI listen to. I had never heard of Coasta

A Child But in Life Yet a Doctor in Love

Numbered Days
Powerful second album from Los Angeles band the Meeting Places, who self-describe their sound as "noisepop"

Motion Picture (2001)

A Paper Gift
The first album that I ever reviewed for Pennyblackmusic was Motion Picture's previous album 'For a Distant Movie Star'. While I'd like to think my review writing technique has gotten better over that

Motion Picture (2001)

Every Last Romance
"Underwhelming" typically isn't a compliment, but in the case of this CD it is meant in the best of ways. this album is so warm and soft sounding that before you know it 40 minutes has passed and it'
