Nashville, TN (PRWEB) September 29, 2008
pacificUV--Clay Jordan (guitar), Mike Erwin (keyboards), Toby Ashmore (vocals, guitar), Matt Kline (bass, vocals), and Jesse Robert W (drums, guitar)--will bring their sophomore full-length album, the aural painkiller known as "longplay 2" (WARM Records), to the western US this October.
It's no easy task to follow up a debut album that Rolling Stone called "a masterpiece" (2003's "pacificUV"), but the eagerly anticipated "longplay 2" has more than held its own, raking in glowing reviews from SPIN ("the guitars more towering and the catharsis more rewarding than seems likely on Planet Earth"), NPR ("atmospheric space-rock...deftly and beautifully orchestrated"), Pitchfork ("7.9, a welcoming security blanket for the winter's thaw") and Alternative Press ("4/5 stars... a symphonic sense of purpose").
