Here`s something we in the power pop world don`t see too often. A decidedly progressive rock band(with the pedigree to prove it - Lo-Fi Resistance features Nick D`Virgilio of Spock`s Beard/Tears For Fears) with a deep love affair with all the elements that make the `power pop` genre work for so many of us; angelic vocals, sharp, tight melodies, hooky song constructions. With his poppy orientation, Lo-Fi Resistance freely delves into the vast expanse of modern progressive rock exploration. It`s so tightly song-constructed, in fact, it`s hard to think of `A Deep Breath` as a progressive rock pop project but it plays like one, which makes it unique, impactful and a cut above almost anything you listening to right now.
Fans of Spock`s Beard, the softer, more melodic side of King`s X(in fact, King`s X frontman Dug Pinnick appears on this record) and Roger Waters are on display but the melodies of, say, Jellyfish and Todd Rundgren anchor the preceedings down. A Deep Breath is a compelling musical journey from explosive bombast to heart-wrenching melancholy. Offering a unique cocktail of progressive pop/rock and beyond, it refuses to conform or bask in any one particular genre. Eleven diverse tracks lay out a musical and lyrical landscape that engulfs the listener and doesn`t overstay its welcome."A Deep Breath is a very good, at times exceptional, album...great guitar hooks abound and McStine`s multi-tracked [vocal] harmonies impress throughout". -Progression
`This is a superb album straddling progressive and modern melodic rock- great songwriting is in evidence, supported by stellar guitar work, layered sounds and harmony vocals`. --Kinesis. VERY Highly Recommended and a MUST for anyone looking for pushing the boundries of everyday, cookie cutter power pop.
