DOLOUR "WAITING FOR A WORLD WAR" RECORD LABEL: Sonic Boom Recordings CATALOG NUMBER: SBR005 YEAR: 2001 RATING: **** AMG EXPERT REVIEW: Dolour's strong debut LP establishes the band with a firmly poppy, yet retro overdriven underground sound... what one would imagine a collaboration between the Flaming Lips and the Beatles might sound like. Shane Tutmarc's soft and expressive voice blends nicely with the textural and colorfully mixed instrumental section: fuzzy yet sparse guitars, overdriven drum sounds, bass guitar, and synth. Wonderfully-cheesy Beach Boys vocal harmonies are occasionally found floating in the background... supporting and enhancing the power of the melodic main vocal. This concise album contains a plethora of catchy, well written pop songs, beautifully sung by Shane Tutmarc and artfully recorded by Blake Wescott. --Solar Marquardt CREDITS: Shane Tutmarc (vocals, guitar, synth/keys), Joe Gregory (bass), Paul Mumaw (drums), Blake Wescott (producer, engineer, mixer), Ed Brookes (Mastering).
