Upon releasing her 10 Best CDs of 2006, Top 10 Amazon.com reviewer Rebecca Johnson named Evening Ocean, Kate Havnevik and Charlotte Gainsbourg's CDs as the top 3 releases of the year.

Upon releasing her 10 Best CDs of 2006, Top 10 Amazon.com reviewer Rebecca Johnson named Evening Ocean, Kate Havnevik and Charlotte Gainsbourg's CDs as the top 3 releases of the year. Johnson declared Evening Ocean the Best New Artist of 2006.

Johnson, the #5 ranked reviewer for Amazon.com, has been profiled in The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times and Forrester's magazine. She was most recently profiled by KING 5 TV in Seattle.

Evening Ocean's CD: "The Attraction" was released on July 11, 2006. The Attraction was mastered by Don Grossinger who previously mastered Brian Wilson's Smile on LP as well as projects for Pink Floyd, the Rolling Stones and Faithless. The artwork for the CD was created by Natalie Shau, who also created artwork for Lacuna Coil.

"The Attraction" was recently added to KCRW-FM's library (Los Angeles, CA). It is also receiving airplay on stations including KLCC's "New Dreamers" show (Eugene, Oregon), WMHD-FM (Terre Haute, Indiana) and WRVU-FM (Nashville, Tennessee).

Kate Havnevik's "Melankton" and Charlotte Gainsbourg's "5:55" CDs earned high praise and five stars from Johnson: "Their voices and arrangements are stunning. Kate Havnevik blends a classical appeal with electronica while Charlotte Gainsbourg's voice sounds wise beyond her years."

Rebecca Johnson's 10 Best CDs of 2006 are:

1.    Evening Ocean - "The Attraction"

2.    Kate Havnevik - "Melankton"

3.    Charlotte Gainsbourg - "5:55"

4.    Psapp - "The Only Thing I Ever Wanted"

5.    Above & Beyond - "Tri State"

6.    Zero 7 - "The Garden"

7.    BT - "This Binary Universe"

8.    The Last Kiss- "Original Soundtrack"

9.    Natalie Walker - "Urban Angel"

10.    Beck - "The Information"

Johnson continues: "Stations like KLCC have already played 6 different songs from the Evening Ocean CD which says a lot to me about the quality of the CD. Many of the bands on this list will end up in movies because people like Zach Braff hear something special in them. But a year can pass before a soundtrack is released.

"You have to champion great music if you want to hear more of it right now. That's why I featured Evening Ocean's CD in my interview with King 5 TV. More people have to hear Charlotte Gainsbourg, Natalie Walker and Kate Havnevik."

Kate Melankton, Psapp and Zero 7 have become more widely known through the Grey's Anatomy and Garden State soundtracks. BT and Beck's music have both been featured extensively on soundtracks including "Monster" and "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", respectively.
