From Soundpool's third album Mirrors In Your Eyes due April 27th, 2010 from Killer Pimp worldwide.
The explosive third album sees this NY-based 5-piece stepping out onto the dancefloor, without leaving their guitars and dreamy effects behind! After building a loyal following in the independent shoegaze scene Soundpool have enhanced their palette and, in turn, crafted a pop masterpiece. The nine songs are infectious, overflowing with strong bass hooks, driving beats, shimmering guitars, and Kim Fields captivating, ethereal voice. The LP comes with a special download code to download MP3s of the entire LP while the CD comes with bonus enhanced content of five music videos.
"The best f***ing band in the world!" - Ulrich Schnauss
"Reminiscent of French pop via Air or Stereolab... fine dream pop." - Pitchfork
"A thick, dreamy shoegazing guitar jumble, driven by an even thicker disco beat" - Max Sebela, Jezebel Music
Post-shoegaze ambient dance with a canonball of cosmic sounds - Kenyon, Advance Copy
"Captivating blend of shoegaze, space rock and wonderful soundscapes" - Radiofreedavid.com
"Few new artists match Soundpool's vocal delivery and sonic awareness" - Musicisnotdead
"Slowdive for the new millennium" - David Mansdorf, Losing Today
"When Lush wrote Sweetness and Light at the height of shoegazing, I wonder if they had anticipated Soundpool" - Brett Spaceman, EVILSPONGE
"Soundpool's heavily layered, dreamy tunes conjure up images of a queen soaring on a throne made of clouds, singing while her smiling band mates float beside her. Vocalist Kim Field's pure, angelic voice ranges from sexy, deeper notes to high-pitched melodies that mirror her keyboard playing. Active yet appropriately subtle, drummer James Renard works with the bassist to form a tight rhythm section, creating an urgent, driving groove. The nonstop, ethereal synths compliment the angular, sometimes haunting guitar, which recalls the sounds of 70s psychedelia, 80s pop and 90s shoegaze. Soundpool's supremely pleasing music leaves listeners with a euphoric high thats only heightened in their dynamic live performances. - Becky Firesheets, The Deli
