From bedrooms to basements to crowded bars, EMOTIONAL is no stationary act. This rings true in all aspects of their existence—it operates more like a musical cooperative, with members coming and going without a care. Seven to ten different members will often appear in each live incarnation. The Band is Emotional’s sophomore full length LP, but the first with major collaborations from members of the Death Records roster: HEALING POTPOURRI's SIMI SOHOTA, FROOGY'S GROOVIES' EMMET MOSKOWITZ, GRADIENT FADE's GEOFF MORRIS, and constant collaborator OLE HAARSTAD. The previous LP, Ahh... The Name Is Emotional, Baby! was a spell of irresistible tangy guitar reverb, bending synths, and candid melodies. With The Band, BRIAN WAKEFIELD (songwriter and Death Records co-founder) dials in the collaborate orchestra of melodic madness into an arrangement of directed pop gush. The nine tracks are full of stripped down twangy culls that reveal a likeness to Gram Parson and Rosanne Cash. The Band was produced by Mild High Club’s ALEX BRETTIN, and features contributions from DANNY JAMES, SARAH BETHE NELSON and ONCE & FUTURE BAND's JOEL ROBINOW.
