Product Description

San Francisco's Still Flyin' have been spreading the word of the almighty HAMMJAMM since 2004, demolishing minds, souls and any notion of personal space with equal abandon. Combining the kinetic energy of 60s era rock steady with the catchy hooks and DIY aesthetic of today's best indie-pop, Still Flyin' are an event rarely paralleled in music.

In a recent Pitchfork article, Okkervil River's Will Sheff said that Still Flyin' was his new favorite band: The most fun I've had at a show in quite awhile. It's just about the last pretentious music you could ever imagine...very fun to watch.

Still Flyin' now releases its highly anticipated debut album, Never Gonna Touch The Ground. Mixed in Melbourne by Haima Marriott with help from Gus Franklin (Architecture in Helsinki) and Isobel Knowles (ex-AIH). Besides their well-toked reggae/party default setting, we now discover group leader Sean Rawls and his 15 or more like-minded musical travellers are equally adept at the penetrating slo-jams (Following The Itinerary/Haunted Houses) and high energy thunder jams (Ghost Town/Dead Memory Man), as well as the insanely catchy world-pop of The Hott Chord Is Struck.

Still Flyin' make music about the things most important to their lives, like getting seriously high, jamming music, jamming brews, jamming pizza, and following the itinerary.

Plunging head first into what is quickly becoming a new era of San Fran consciousness, Still Flyin' is on the forefront of a new musical movement. Where much of today's music can be caught up in categories and labelling, the band have developed a term used to not only describe their sound, but also as a way to get outside the confines of genre definitions. HAMMJAMM is not to be confused with the Jam Band Sound, it is in fact fairly concise songs played with such vercity that they can only be called JAMMS, while the HAMM aspect represents a willingness not to be traditionally categorized.

Review

If you thought all the prime real estate in life-affirming collective-pop had been snapped up already by the likes of Broken Social Scene, the Polyphonic Spree, Animal Collective, et al, then think again! Sean Rawls and the rag-tag crew of 14 musos that make up San Francisco's Still Flyin' have parked their party bus in the neighborhood and taken up a prominent residence with their debut album Never Gonna Touch The Ground. --Inpress Magazine

Never Gonna Touch the Ground is....I don't know what to write. It's just a fun album and well produced. My favourite song is The Hottchord is Struck, it's such a happy, dorky song song, love it. I could take this time to go into an in-depth analysis of each song, what I liked, and what I didn't like, but I'm not so arrogant as to think that such a long-winded opinion is warranted. I am not a music-critic, but I can be a bit of an audiophile, and I do know what I like...and this, I like. It's kinda like rocky, dancy, pop-y, goodness.
