Here's what is being said about this CD:
"Americopa Mantle, a community of Arizona musicians, presents
its first music compilation in an effort to build support for the local music
scene. Judging by the material on this disc, the release should go a long way
toward building that support. Before Braille check in with two hard pop tunes,
"The Case Is Out" and "Cause For Alarm", that display
the bands patented hooks, vocal harmonies and sonically innovative guitar work.
The Ruby Lee's two songs are awash in gorgeous psychedelia; Awake &
Alert's heavy, melodic "Wool and Water" provides a showcase
for the powerful vocals of singer Maya Peart and The Go Reflex steals the show
with the stunning "Rincon Life", a slice of piano and vocal harmony-layered
pure pop beauty in the Beach Boys' "Pet Sounds" mold. This
disc is vibrant proof that these Arizona bands know how to craft near-perfect
