Product Description

On his first full-length album, Ultra, Brian Lopez s infatuation with the sonics and atmospherics of Radiohead s OK Computer is evident, as is his scrutiny of how Thom Yorke goes about making the personal public without losing either his dignity or his soul. Like Yorke, Lopez is a thoroughly modern young man who has deep roots in a certain traditionalism that enables him to get his points across much in the manner of a folk singer while presenting his findings in an undeniably modern setting. In Brian s case, though, the music is a heady synthesis of brute force rock n roll (he does after all, lead a highly regarded three-piece band, Mostly Bears, that has won plaudits for their rousing live shows) and Beatles-like classicism (literally, in that his current band configuration for Ultra includes violin, cello, accordion, upright bass and lap steel) centered in rock, country, pop, and traditional folk all at once. (This is assuming that anyone reading this agrees on Rubber Soul being one of the founding documents of country s mid- 80 s New Traditionalist movement Rosanne Cash says so, why not you?). Even at this early stage in his career, he s toured Europe with French chanteuse Marianne Dissard as her guitarist and backup vocalist. He s played with Calexico, and recently he s been touring with Howe Gelb and his band Giant Sand, who ve helped to build the careers of artists such as M. Ward, Neko Case, Granddaddy and Scout Niblett. Ultra is the product of a long and winding music highway Brian Lopez has been traveling for years through some interesting byways of song and style, with more than a little personal growth occurring along the route.In his own words......


For his haunting and melancholy solo work... Lopez is more of a Latin Jeff Buckley. His warble is as serene and emotive... Lopez is a uniquely talented individual and someone to keep an eye on... --Austin Vida Magazine

Brian Lopez s Maslow s Hierarchy an improbable gem... an unusual song topic...Lopez delivers it live on guitar and vocals...romantic, mystical and entirely unique.
