Poem Rocket Discography of CDs


Psychogeography Psychogeography CD (2000)
CD $13.99 Buy It  Details
Poem Rocket CD discography New York City trio Poem Rocket released Psychogeography, its third album and debut for the Atavistic label in October 2000. More straightforward but as uncompromising as ever, this CD contains 15 songs ranging from acoustic pseudo-ballad ("Intermission") to full-fledged noise rock anthem ("Reurbanization of the Space"). The band's best feature is still the complementary male/female lead vocals featured throughout the album. A reference to the more organized side of Sonic Youth is in order, but Poem Rocket also takes elements from the post-rock book, namely on the slow-paced opener "Dirigible." The basic guitar/bass/drums trio's sound is enhanced by a wide array of effects, studio montage, and tape loops that can turn what could have been a bland song into something like the haunting "Budapest." Vocals could have been more forward in the mix, as they get drowned in guitars at times, like on "Karel Appel." Psychogeography is packed with intelligent, energized, danceable, not-taken-for-granted alternative pop/rock tunes. ~ François Couture Recorded in February 2000. Personnel: Mike Peters (vocals, guitar); Sandra Gardner (vocals, Fender Rhodes piano); Peter Gordon (piano, drums, loops). Audio Mixers: Poem Rocket; Adam Cooke; Chris Bowen. Recording information: 1675 Broadway (02/2000); ACR Studio (02/2000). Poem Rocket: Michael Peters (vocals, guitar); Sandra Gardner (vocals, piano, bass); Peter Gordon (piano, drums, loops). 2nd Rel
Invasion! Invasion! CDs (2007)
CD $16.69 Buy It  Details
Poem Rocket albums Though avant-pop couple Michael Peters and Sandra Gardner--the principal players in Poem Rocket--took seven years putting together INVASION!--a double disc, 19-song miasmic statement of purpose--fans will find it worth the wait. Poem Rocket's vision has always been grandiose, but the scope of INVASION! surpasses their previous outings. Their compositions craftily walk the line between bombastic soundscape and hooky songwriting to create a truly unique aural epic that one can hum along to. Poem Rocket Principals Michael Peters & Sandra Gardner Have Returned After A Multi-Year Hiatus Since The Release Of Their Critically-Acclaimed Atavistic Debut, Psychogeography (Alp123Cd)- Emerging To Offer The World A Glimpse Of Their Own Invasion!... "An Ecstatic Sense Of The Undertaking? Or, Dead Reckoning. Listen: Only Love Defies This Deluge, And Therein, In Its Moist Condensations, This Tempest Of Cloud Cover Defies Yourself, Your Mood... To Die For The Want Of This Love. Yes, Don'T Think You'Re Not Dying, For The Invasion Is Just Beginning." Or, Put Another Way, This Is An Incredibly Sophisticated, Expansive And Densely Layered Double-Album Of Worthy Of Your Full Attention. Poem Rocket: Michael Peters (acoustic guitar); Sandra Gardner (bass guitar). Personnel: Rebekah Hood (cello); John M. Bennett (flute); Peter Gordon (accordion); Charles Burst (Farfisa); Adam Cooke (drums).
Felix Culpa Felix Culpa CD (1995)
CD Check Availability  Details
Poem Rocket music CDs FELIX CULPA is a collection of Poem Rocket's 7" singles and compilation This collection of early singles from New York's Poem Rocket shows that the stellar indie rock on their later LPs, Infinite Retry on Parallel Time Out and Psychogeography, didn't come from nowhere. On Felix Culpa, Poem Rocket splits the difference between the plodding post-punk of the Comsat Angels and the white noise of Flying Saucer Attack and Sonic Youth, though Poem Rocket isn't as obviously melodic as of any of those groups. The band's goals are achieved through repetition and texture, not melody, and Felix Culpa is a captivating record mostly because of the druggy, insistent bass and drum patterns and keyboardist/guitarist Denneye's wild noise explosions. Intelligent, ...
