Editorial Reviews

Born on the Bayou & schooled in the company of the Searching Elephants, Bill Doss proceeds through the disciplines & brambles at the helm of The Sunshine Fix, who have just docked into the port of their second album, "Green Imagination". This album is a simpler, less complicated place which feels even more expansive than its predecessor "Age of the Sun". Recorded at home, "Green Imagination" has a timeless quality: This record could have been recorded thirty years ago or thirty years into the future. Doss is a former member of The Olivia Tremor Control, who released two critically acclaimed albums, "Music from the Unrealized Film Script: Dusk at Cubist Castle" & "Black Foliage: Animation Music by the Olivia Tremor Control" as well as a host of EPs & singles. The Olivias were part of a recording collective known as The Elephant 6 Recording Company. This group of like minded bands, which included The Apples in Stereo, Neutral Milk Hotel, & The Music Tapes, spent the better part of the mid 1990's searching. Recording at home but touring the world, they searched for whatever place they wished to create; whatever reality they would prefer. With The Sunshine Fix, Bill is still creating new realities; environments set up as alternates to the common place. Limited edition includes bonus DVD.

Format: Audio CD
"Indy-rock," "low-fi," "neo-psychedelia" ... Green Imagination deserves better than the usual labels employed by music reviewers too lazy to do ought but compare and categorize, Bill Doss & cohorts deserve better--for all their association with The Elephant Six Collective (not to mention the inept comparisons to Sixties psychedelic pop the band continually suffers at the hands of apparently hearing-impaired or musically-uneducated critics/hacks [works like Magical Mystery Tour are often referenced by such clueless scribes who clearly ape one another`s ignorance]), Sunshine Fix consistently expresses an unique musical vision, one that defies the stamp and file of trend or genre.

As with their previous release (the excellent Age of The Sun), the Fix have concocted a heady brew of pop tunes both lyrically and melodically intriguing, and once again the production is as delightful and idiosyncratic as the songs themselves (in these dark days when so many recording artists have abandoned Songcraft in favor of mere Sound, the evocative compositions of Bill Doss are salient points of very-much-needed light). Whether all-out rocking, like the opening "Statues and Glue," or emphemeral dreamy-most, like the lysergically-blissful ballad "Innerstates," or pataphysically poignant, like "Enjoy The Teeth," with its heartbreaking piano and strings intro, each track is a polished gem, Doss & company pulling more aural tricks per song from up their musical sleeves than most bands do over an entire album. It is not only that mellotron, clavinet, gospel organ, dulcimer, flutes, strings, horns, mouth harp, childrens' choir & more are employed to embellish their tunes, The Sunshine Fix have an amazing knack of utilizing such instrumentation in just the right places and in just the right measure.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Lee Armstrong HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on October 31, 2004
Format: Audio CD
Sunshine Fix's "Green Imagination" provides great pumping melodic indie rock. Bands like Beulah, Shins & Jonah would be kissing cousins. The opener "Statues & Glue" begins with a pounding drum and moves to tight harmonies and a ripping lead guitar, "See those standing in line, but who's got the time?" Then bang, it's over. "Runaway Run" is a whimsical track with a sweet acoustic guitar that blossoms into an orchestral piece complete with the Georgia Children's Choir, "If there ever comes a time when you can make up your mind, just find me, but until then, runaway, run." Other tracks are also strong such as the vocally distorted echo chambers used on "What Do You Know." "Extraordinary/Ordinary" boasts background vocals that could pep up a Dr. Pepper commercial; and just when you think it's going to get a bit too spacey, the driving electric lead wrenches its way back in and cranks the track forward. Songwriter and lead vocalist Bill Doss includes the wacko space noodling of "Innerstates" and then makes it into a glorious choral piece. "Afterglow" is a marvelous pop march that trounces through the melody. Shins-like, "Enjoy the Teeth" has Doss' piano defining the melody with violins and cellos making the piece float on the vocal, "It's important to see reality as a place we can be." Then they get to the middle of the song, throw that out, and start channeling Henry Mancini and Peter Gunn, which is part of the charm of Sunshine Fix, you don't know what to expect or what will come next. "Face the Ghost" sounds like a single aimed for Halloween airplay. The set closes with "Sunday Afternoon" that bubbles electrically. Kevin Evans does a wonderful job with the art graphics on the booklet, reflecting the highly creative latitude that this band allows itself. "Green Imagination" bursts with energy, joy and is crazy enough to intrigue. Enjoy!

I hope this band puts out more albums in the future. This is truly new music with a retro sound - almost surf music, but with more bite and prog influence without lenghty instrumentals. Although alittle more guitar would be nice.

Lead Singer, Sir Arnold Cunningbird, does great vocals on this record. Most songs sung in a bathroom, with added flute effects give it an amazing vibe. And with lyrics like "Water is extraordinary" you can also learn a great deal.

Olivia Tremor Control shook me in a regulatory manner. I'm so upset I even took the time to write this unfavorable review.
