Product Description

Three years ago John Solomon walked away from music. After struggling with addiction and a brief stint in jail, he broke up his critically acclaimed band Friends Like These and moved to a small town in Wisconsin. And supposedly that was that. Even though Solomon left music, music never left him. After a long hiatus, he called some old friends to come to Wisconsin and demo up a new album: Steve Yasgar, the former drummer of The Swiss Army and Askeleton, Jonathan Blaseg of The Blinds, and former Friends Like These member Adam Switlick moved into small town Wisconsin where Johnny had met Molly Moore, and they all met to start the demos for ''Soundtrack to the End.'' Solomon and company have already started to reclaim their spot in the music world with glowing reviews from critics all over; some that remember Solomon and company from Friends Like These, and others meeting them for the first time. A re-energized Solomon has assembled a record worth taking note of now. Already being named one of 5 Emerging Artists to Watch in 2010 by Avid, the makers of Protools and M-audio. The album includes some of the Twin Cities' best and brightest including appearances by: Darren Jackson (Kid Dakota, The Hopefuls), Christopher Mcguire (12 Rods), Al Weiers (Faux Jean) and Dave Boquist (Son Volt).

Review

''Fragile, daydreaming harmonies. Swirling synths that spin and spin until they fall down dizzy'' --Rolling Stone

''Soundtrack to the End,'' a mostly acoustic, lo-fi but highly melodic and inventive folk-rock collection that falls in with modern taste buds somewhere between Bon Iver, Blitzen Trapper and Belle & Sebastian.'' --Star Tribune

''The result is a gorgeously sad and luscious album.'' --City Pages

Format: Audio CD
This album is amazing. There is not one track on it that I don't enjoy. I have favorites; I'll play Soundtrack to the End, Speed of Sound, Northern Lights, and Tumbleweed multiple times in a row, and if I skip a song, it isn't because it's bad, it's because the one I'm trying to get to is so good. When I first bought this album it stayed in my car's cd player for 6 months without being removed once. I don't have a cd changer, this was literally the only album I listened to while driving. Buy this album. Now. You won't be disappointed.

First heard Communist Daughter about a year ago on satellite radio, which was playing "Not the Kid." Downloaded the whole album, and I just can't believe these guys aren't more popular. I hang out with a lot of music geeks and none of them had even heard of Communist Daughter... these guys need to get a better publicist! My favorite song is "Northern Lights," and other highlights are "Lady is an Arsonist," the title song, and the aforementioned "Not the Kid," but there isn't a bad song on the whole collection. I am hesitant to compare them with other bands because their sound is distinct, but they're somewhere in the vicinity of bands like Death Cab, Postal Service, Arcade Fire, maybe even the Hold Steady... It's been a couple of years since Soundtrack to the End got released-- I hope they release another album soon (they've been playing gigs around Minneapolis recently, so fingers crossed!)

I happened to accidentally see this band play at a local bar in my hometown. They put on an absolutely amazing live performance, so I bought this CD afterwards. Turns out that it is one of those rare albums that you can leave in a CD player and just not touch through the entirety of it. Definitely a win. Not a bad song on the album. Highlights are "Fortunate Son," "Oceans" and "Not The Kid." Though all of them are great.

I second the reviews above. The whole album, from start to finish, is amazing. Most of my friends haven't heard of CD either, but I'm doing my best to change that. This is a rare hidden gem. Heartfelt, original, stirring music that you owe it to yourself to check out.
