||Cicada CD (2006) |
Austin, Texas's Cat Scientist specializes in playfully tossed-off keyboard-driven dance numbers that move the feet and engage the mind with intelligent and often goofy lyrics. The band is as adept at creating memorable melodies ("Precipice") as club-banging techno numbers ("Cicada," "I Saved an Airplane"). The grandness of scale and celebratory vibe of their live show translates effortlessly to the studio.
Personnel: Julien Peterson (vocals, keyboards, bass instrument); Brant Bingamon, Rae Craig, Brant Bingamon (vocals, keyboards); Bill Anderson (vocals, guitar, keyboards); Cisco Ryder (vocals, keyboards, drums).
Recording information: Sweatbox Studios, Austin, TX.
