The Movement Toward You

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Peter J. D'Angelo
Jett Brando makes their mark with dreamy pop that has as much to do with the Velvet Underground as it does with laid-back, introspective singer/songwriter efforts. Featuring members of the beloved My Bloody Valentine-esque All Natural Lemon and Lime Flavors, the group gets their point across in a fairly subtle whisper with an occasional foray into spacey, upbeat pop. Tracks like "More Than Becoming" and "In the Dead Hot Sun" feature the chiming guitars and peppy lyrics that made '60s rock so accessible, and the more melancholy odes are still effective in their inherent moodiness. At times The Movement Toward You can become quite a downer, but it is still a beautiful ...

Featuring members of the beloved My Bloody Valentine-esque All Natural Lemon and Lime Flavors, the group gets their point across in a fairly subtle whisper with an occasional foray into spacey, upbeat pop.

At times The Movement Toward You can become quite a downer, but it is still a beautiful record, especially on the subtle acoustic closing of "Who Is to Decide," where the group creates a spacious and peaceful web of sound that carries the extremely melodic vocals of guitarist Brando. There aren't that many variances in style, but the band does what they do with incredibly charming and expansive results. Much like All Natural Lemon and Lime Flavors were able to make a world of otherworldly hard-rocking sounds, Jett Brando constructs a universe of tiny noises and beautiful sounds that evoke dark settings and intense feelings. It may not be the best work from the musicians involved, but it is a fitting new direction, and with slightly more evocative songs, the band's instrumental prowess will really be able to shine.

    timeless garage pop with crooner-esque vocals

    A bright new dark star of the indie set is shining and his name is Jett Brando. He is a crooner frontman of his own band which successfully combines the looseness of Pavement's best efforts with the hazy quality of early 90's Shoegaze. This is all filtered through a pure pop package. The songs on this release were recorded a couple of years ago, but they are immune to time since they're from an old school of classic writers such as Cole Porter. It's a melancholy album overall, but with hope somehere deep within. Highlights include: The Center of Gravity(Sink Right Down); Well, Well; Athuna; In The Dead Hot Sun.
