Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Shall Noise Upon is the third full-length album from Cambridge/New York/
L.A.-based Apollo Sunshine, the follow-up to their 2005 self-titled record.
Written and recorded on the spot during a particularly transformative summer
of 2007 up in the Catskill Mountains in a house inhabited by spirits, right next
door to the original Uncle Sam by multi-instrumentalists Jesse Gallagher, Sam
Cohen, and Jeremy Black. Surrendering themselves to divine will, universal
harmony and the fierce belief in the collective head-space and transformative
musical alchemy of Apollo Sunshine, this is a celebration of darkness and
light, love and death, friends and lovers, ghosts, magic in numbers, searching,
finding, losing, destroying and creating anew. This collective harmonic spirit was also realized by recruiting a
cavalcade of exceptionally-gifted musical pals (from Boston s Drug Rug, Tulsa, Viva Viva).

Review

Bouncy 60 s-style melodies crack wide open, breaking into outbursts of
pummeling and feedback before jumping back into the tune. It s all neatly
and cleverly plotted, but with a looming chaos that s anything but nostalgic. --New York Times

Apollo Sunshine s latest takes the wild, psychedelic instrumentation of the
Elephant Six Collective, reigns it in, adds a hint of roots-rock accessibility to
the Brit-pop bliss and cranks the amps to eleven for a complex record that s
still 100-percent rock n roll. --Paste

This new band has no real genre outside of made-up, adjective-loaded
hybrids like manic, free-associative pop or something like that. --Pitchfork

Customer Reviews

The more you listen the more you "get it"!
Diane Espindle
It's all thunder, strings and dawnlike buildup... followed by silence... and finally finishing with a weird lo-fi brainwashing message.
E. A Solinas
I enjoyed it thoroughly, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is a friend of the hookah.

Format: Audio CD
The Apollo Sunshine have always dabbled in Elephant 6-style psychedelica and sparkling pop melodies, but they've outdone themselves with "Shall Noise Upon."

In particular, their third full-length album is a concept album about spirituality's effect, so they have plenty of material to build on. But they wrap it in a canvas of outrageously loopy sound -- we've got a mishmash of jazz, soul, psychedelic pop and pastoral folk, and it's all splattered with an experimental edge that practically tears off the ear.

"The surface of streams/the fingers of trees/the sweet harmonies/in the breeze...." Sam Cohen sings over a pendulous melody of guitar, rippling harp and trickling piano. As a warmup, he continues singing the praises of nature, and describing it as being "the way I long to touch you."

It's followed by the bouncy acoustic folk of "Singing To The Earth (To Thank Her For You)," the blistering psychedelica of "666: The Coming Of The New World Government," and an all-too brief titular interlude which is basically blips, creaks, and eruptions of electric guitar that sounds like it's trying to possess you. Think a hard-rock reincarnation of the Olivia Tremor Control.

From there they drift through songs in that vein -- delicate folk-pop melodies, countryish ballads, bouncy psychpop, quirky acid-jazzy songs, and a Mexican flavoured pop tune. But there are also songs that go way, way over to the weird side -- warbling strings filled with hymnlike vocals, spacey psychedelic Hawaiian folk.

And there's the eerie "Light Of The World" finale. It's all thunder, strings and dawnlike buildup... followed by silence... and finally finishing with a weird lo-fi brainwashing message. Don't know what that's all about.

Format: Vinyl
Apollo Sunshine blends '60s psychedelic folk with the arena rock hugeness of the '70s and the lo-fi noise pop aesthetics of '90s groups like My Bloody Valentine or the Olivia Tremor Control.

The cover art for the Boston, Mass.-based trio's third record, Shall Noise Upon, depicts a Jackson Pollock-like, color-splattered globe surrounded by constellations of religious and spiritual icons from every corner of the earth. The image suggests the record somehow takes the disparate cultures of a large world and unifies them into a single, genre-breaking, stargazing album. It may seem like an impossibly lofty goal, but the songs deliver.

The LP w/bonus CD is also a big plus as you get the beauty of the LP art and the warmth of the music on vinyl, with a CD version of the album that you can pop in your car stereo or rip onto your iPod.

I have been a fan of Apollo Sunshine since it's conception.I loved "Conscious Pilot" from the KATONAH album and "YOU AND I" from the PINK album, but this new CD "SHALL NOISE UPON" exceeds all my expectations! This is a musician's mecca and a listener's jewel. The more you listen the more you "get it"!

Shall Noise Upon (2008, Headless Heroes) Apollo Sunshine's third studio album. ****

I would recommend that everyone listen to this album at least once, especially if you enjoy late 60's psychedelia. No doubt you'll find at least one song you like, because every song sounds like a different band; early Pink Floyd, Cream, the Beatles, the Byrds, etcetera. And while most of the album is fairly captivating, Shall Noise Upon fails to act as a coherent piece. Nothing is really put together, it's like having a puzzle where all the pieces are the same color, making it impossible to figure out how to shape it into one thing.

"Singing to the Earth" moves like George Harrison's work, bouncy and full of sunshine. "666" mixes Aorta with Floyd, reeking of fairly impressive guitar distortion imitation. The beginning of "Happiness" is almost identical to "I Talk to the Wind" by King Crimson. All of this isn't necessarily bad, the music sounds great; but there really isn't a voice to be found anywhere. Shall Noise Upon, then, acts less as art (though it seems Apollo Sunshine meant it that way) and more as pure entertainment for stoners who miss or would have wanted to be a part of Woodstock. I don't scold that. Because even though they do sound like other bands from the era, they're not ripping off anyone's work. I enjoyed it thoroughly, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is a friend of the hookah. (Singing to the Earth, The Funky Chamberlain, Money)

I've listened to this album with great enjoyment and awe. Though I delight in all the tracks, I'm unable to get my mind around the whole. Each track is uniquely different from the others, and all offer a listening experience that leaves my senses amazed. The group has mastery over their medium to such a degree that this listener is awestruck with wonder at their virtuosity and sound. From the raucous "666" through the melodic "Happiness" to the irresistible hook of "Mermaid Angeline", the album soars over all musical genres.

This is creative achievement that readily attains greatness. So bottomless in nuance, it will both delight and challenge your being for years. Failure to purchase it will be your own great loss.
