Editorial Reviews

Product Description

This "demo" was recorded in a mere 3 days. The band was forced to release this brilliant collection to appease an overwhelming demand. Like the pop artists of yesteryear, The Polyphonic Spree know the importance of lush arrangements. Their HUGE sound is accented by viola, cello, trumpet, french horn, trombone, flute, theremin, a 10 person choir, and a veritable orchestra of other instruments.

Amazon.com

Led by former Tripping Daisy frontman Tim DeLaughter, the Polyphonic Spree is like a user-friendly version of the Danielson Family. Decked in saintly white robes and flaunting a 10-piece choir and 13-piece band, the Dallas ensemble conjures a sound as pure and delightful as a jug of tropical Kool-Aid on the hottest day of the year. With hints of the Beach Boys , Flaming Lips, and the Beatles--all at their most blissfully intoxicated--The Beginning Stages is the big sound of summer compressed onto a small disc, with the airy tweet of flutes, wind chimes, and breathy incantations like "Hey, it's the sun, and it makes me shine." Depending on your partiality for mid-’70s macramé culture, this is either a gift from the gods or the worst thing that could possibly happen to pop culture since bellbottoms made a comeback. --Aidin Vaziri
