Editorial Reviews

Pela is an American rock and roll band. At a time when the word "America" has never been more fraught with meaning, songs that speak to our basic feelings and emotions about life could never be more resonant. "Pela are as original as they come, and the artful songwriting and emphatic vocals are a welcome addition to this world of bland mediocrity" - Anthem Magazine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hands down best album of 2007 August 30, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I bought the album before they played the benefit BBQ for KEXP. I actually think there are 4 or 5 better songs than "Lost to the Lonesome", the song getting the most play on that station, but they really blew me away with their live set. They stood out among a bunch of great bands at that show. TV On The Radio had the best album of 2006, in my opinion, and this is the best of 2007. "Waiting on the Stairs", "Song Writes Itself", "Tenement Teeth" and "Lost to the Lonesome" are great rock songs, and "The Trouble with River Cities" and "Your Desert's Not a Desert At All" are gorgeous. Pick up this album and see them live if you get the chance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have Album of 2007 June 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Hands down, probably one of the best albums that will come out this year. I am quite picky about the albums I like, and this one has sneaked its way in there. Fans of Arcade Fire, Killers, Band of Horses, Clap Your Hands, etc. will be served well to buy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars smart compelling groove rock October 3, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is a gorgeous album. Smart without being pretentious, varied but still organic, sing along fun but not dumb. Fans of Arcade Fire, Spoon, Okkervil River, Twilight Sad, Beirut... rejoice. And buy this album. "Waiting on the Stairs" will have you stomping your feet and asking for more. "Anytown Graffiti" will impel a beautiful reverie. And the rest of the album's darn good too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! April 3, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I loved the We Are Augustines first album so much, I wanted to find more music by the band. That is when I stumbled onto Pela. I really I wish I had caught them in the beginning. Great stuff.

Buy it and live well. One of the greatest albums of all time, and you should know Augustines by now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Right On! June 30, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Pela is an amazing band that made expressive, genius, and heart-wrenching music that just penetrate every part of you. I was devasted the band parted because of record label conflict. I was ecstatic when We Are Augustines rose from the deep waters showing that a sunken ship CAN be saved. I absolutely love these men for putting out wondrous music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic! June 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Awesome album...true blue, heartfelt, rock n' roll with a modern edge.

I was stunned when they broke up after putting this album out as it was so clear to me it was the classic album of a band with a great future...I mourn the future releases that will never come even as I appreciate this album.

The second half of 2007 is forever defined by this album and the National's Boxer.

We have followed Pela from their beginnings playing addictive and compeling music at the Mercury and Luna lounges in NYC. Not a bad venue for a Brooklyn band. Read more
