Product Description

Product Description

For those that came in late Sydney powerpop band, Montana, is a rare beast in this new century of popular music. Perhaps the rarest of beasts: a crisp, clear understanding of a pop song, a hold on history with the inclusion of a guitar or two, the appropriate embrace of modern technology and more hooks than a tackle shop.

The last few years have been busy for the Montana popsters. In between touring the UK, Europe and the USA, not to mention dozens of Australia-wide shows, the band managed to finish their second long player, "Starsign:Tarantula".

Just like the band's debut album, "Bubblegum Love", "Starsign:Tarantula" is bursting with catchy guitar hooks and inventive pop melodies, while going one louder with so-catchy-you-cant'-stop-singing-em tunes. From the subtle, wistful love song "Blondes Against Brunettes" to the downright brutal "Rejected", the album is a sonic feast with something for everyone. Lush boy/girl vocal arrangements (reminiscent of Montana's previous single "Nearer") grace the electric blast that is "MTV", while "Good Goes Bad", "Saturday Night" and the breezy-as-a-summer's-day "Summerscool" are all simply poptastic. Melodically sweet yet lyrically dark, the tracks beg repeated listens - and with this album of toe tappers, you'll be compelled to oblige! Although the melancholy strains of "Stalki Blues" and "Wait' push the boundaries of "powerpop", they bristle with hooks sharp enough to get under your skin, and that's got to be a good thing! Love powerpop, love "Starsign:Tarantula".

Included on this UK version are five exclusive never-before-been-heard tracks especially recorded for the Lojinx release of "Starsign:Tarantula". A brilliant complement to the album, the five new songs are by turn funny and dark, giving the unique Montana take on the world.

Review

Australian band, Montana are a group that have their brain's firmly lodged in pop heaven, creating music that unashamedly harbours desires to deliver the perfect slice of indie pop, unleashing hooks that are usually only found on a pop addled track before mixing in cheery melodies strapped to sun drenched beats. -- Jodie Woodgate, Room Thirteen

It's wonderful, uplifting pop...one of the best sounds around today and bands like this should be selling millions. -- David Winstanley, Classic Rock

Montana are on to a winner here, and as easy to digest as those first four squares of chocolate, "Starsign: Tarantula" is a feast of melodic wonder that's equally as sweet and indulging. -- Bruce Turnbull, God Is In The TV

These are the sort of songs that you can sing along to before they are even finished, and beneath the glittering glossy patina of visceral pop beats a heart of experimentation. -- David Cowling, Americana UK
