Unlike many of the NadaMucho.com staff, there isn’t a 20-50 disc CD changer in my house. There’s no need for one. I’m the type of person who listens to one album over and over and over (you get the idea.) I absorb it, I analyze it, I listen to it to death. So when spyplane’s drummer, Kevin Past, handed me their sample album at our June label release party at Chop Suey, I dutifully listened to it at least twenty times before committing pencil to paper.

spyplane is a band rich in instrumental expertise and catchy tunes, but are still toddlers in their lyrical maturation. Lead singer Todd Sloan is decent enough when he stays in his lower register, but his songs lack a sense of anything that actually compelled me to “feel”. I have high hopes for this band, though. The instrumental high and lows throughout their songs caused my foot to tap on the floor and my head to nod rhythmically which is always a sign of a great album.

I’m curious how the band sounds like and what they do on their full length album, communications are down, due out in local stores by August. If they continue to grow, spyplane is gonna go places.
