SEATTLE PI - "This one-man band formed by Shane Tutmarc evokes the breezy, tuneful sound of late-'60s pop. Dolour's well-crafted current album, "Suburbiac," is a local bestseller."

THE STRANGER SAYS "Dolour's latest album, Suburbiac, is really, really good. ...A personalized brand of pop informed by all the great pop idols: Brian Wilson, the Beatles, and Blur..." - KATHLEEN WILSON

PITCHFORK SAYS "Stop the press! It's a new band you simply gotta hear to believe! "Well... it's not really a band, just one guy," clarifies the newly formed Fugitive Records. So then, it's one guy you simply gotta hear to believe! Shaggy-headed Dolour mastermind Shane Tutmarc is all about the pop, that beauteous pop all you kids are hep to these days."

THE SEATTLE TIMES SAY "Tutmarc and his assemblage of musicians meld acoustic and electronic instruments into collages of sound that surprise at every turn, sprucing up the standard rock combo with a little theremin, cello and mandolin. The outcome is a touch of Elvis Costello and Bowie, some Flaming Lips, all those musicians who know how to crackle brightly as they sing of pain. "

FINE PRINT - "Itís been said that Grease is the word; itís got groove, itís got meaning. But I think that in 2002 Dolour became the word. At least for me. Aside from the fact that word Dolour means pain in French, the music of Dolour carries a number of attitudes: pain, joy, love, and even hate at times. And oh yes, Dolourís got groove."
