Audio CD, Explicit Lyrics, June 1, 1999

Editorial Reviews

Released in 1999, ADVERTISING SPACE marked Holcombe's recorded debut, as well as his first release on his own Napoleon Records.

Included are eleven songs of jazz-inflected folk-pop which evoke Jeff Buckley's meandering song structures and Ani DiFranco's strong, slashing rhythms and sharp lyrics. This album is definitely the product of an angstier, younger Holcombe and still resonates today with an intensity that moves many Holly Waller fans to crown it their "favorite Holcombe CD Ever!"

The songs range from the acoustic, guitar and vox songcraft of This Life to grander, suprisingly lush and layered Anthem. Suprising in that Holcombe self produced this album in his bedroom on tweaked-out computer gear during college, roping in various musician friends as school schedules allowed. These friends included drummer Brian Devendorf, bassist Aaron Dessner, and guitarist Bryce Dessner, all of whom have reformed into the current rock band "The National," as well as multi-instrumentalist Benjamin Landsverk, who most recently collaborated on the writing and production of Holcombe's latest album, TROUBLED TIMES.

Any fan of TROUBLED TIMES or EXTRAVAGANT GESTURE will surely appreciate ADVERTISING SPACE. A familiarity with all three reveals an artistic progression that might be described as a steady decline away from technical over-achievement towards a more ephemeral, spaced-out sacred moment- but we're only guessing.
