5.0 out of 5 stars rescue them from obscurity 9 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
I saw this band in Cleveland two times in 2007 and 2008. They were excellent live and this album really captures them at their best. Cooler than Vampire Weekend, more dancing tunes than Ra Ra Riot, and just very very good. I don't know what has happened to them since as their website seems dead. But I really recommend you buy this and listen, and then help me find them again!

4.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Debut 19 Feb 2008
By Keith Shelton - Published on
Format:Audio CD
The Epochs are possibly the best band to come out in 2008. They bring a fresh, original sound, electronic undertones, and pop sensibility.

The beat and vibaphone on "opposite sides" is incredibly addictive and catchy - even if the high pitches of the vocalist takes a little getting used to.

"Mouths to Feed" is another standout track that also implements the xylophone sound with an electronic beat. It really works for them.

The album also has some fun summery, playful tunes like "Love Complete"

all in all, this is an outstanding debut album by a band to watch out for. I gave it 4 stars because I think it lacks the consistency of a 5 star album, but they definitely have 5 star sound and potential. Check these guys out.

The best new group I have heard in years. The Beat and Vocals just work.
5.0 out of 5 stars The best album I've heard in years!!! 13 July 2011
By Jason - Published on
Format:Audio CD
It's been way too long since I've heard an album that was this good. I can just sit back, close my eyes and listen to their smooth sounds for hours. Listen to "Opposite Sides" once and you'll be hooked, just like me. You have to get this Album!!!
4.0 out of 5 stars Old school vocals collide with modern electronics (in a good way) 12 May 2011
By loce_the_wizard - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Whirl together the lockstep rhythms and cool electronics of modern dance music and the more natural, organic vocals of old school soul, plus various other flourishes and tricks, and you end up with the Epochs. The CD artwork is bright and brash, paint sloshed across a canvas, dripping and running together, the work of a frenzied artist. That artwork sums up the Epoch's music, too--it is bright and busy; songs overlay one another as endings fade to and beginnings emerge; and the whole CD pulses with energy.

"Stand Up and Be Counted," "Picture of the Sun," and "Opposite Sides" showcase the clear-cut pop sensibilities, and the vocals and the instruments blend into a groove that will get into your head and backbone. Fronted by a couple of brothers, Hays and Ryan Holladay who share vocals and play all manner of instruments, the Epochs might seem a two-man army, but the rhythm section of a cat named Kotchy (that's the name he uses) on drums and percussion along with a great bass player, Kevin Smith, are essential here.

As far as who wrote what, who plays what, or any information at all about the band or songs, well, it is no doubt under all that paint somewhere. Give this a listen but turn it up.
