Acoustic Minds "Electric Sol" Album
Written by Sean Mahan on August 14, 2012
Twins Jenni and Amanda Price have broken away from being back up singers for great bands such as Keegan Smith, Marv Ellis, and Pilar French to create their own unique sound. The release of “Electric Sol” encapsulates their decades long progress as musicians.
Soul, electronica, heavy rock, and so many other genres of music are hinted at or straight blasted into your ears from this unique album. Now a 5 piece band with their own sound Acoustic Minds have made a complete departure from acoustic only to fully embrace the electronic soul music on the new album.
During the Acoustic Minds interview on KPSU, Jenni Price summed the album up best “great female vocals with a heavy womp wom sound”. Really the beautiful harmonies, Drum n Bass, and synth define this album.
Aaron Altemose’s fancy DNB with infrared controller makes it danceable and fun to watch. Josh Lorenzen masterful synth work gives the music a fun 80s feel. Live Drumming by Josh Burns provides that slight nod heavy rock. The Price sisters amazing soulful vocal harmonies tie everything together. The music surrounds you like a hug, simultaneously makes you wanna dance like nobody is watching.
The album is available at local record stores, www.acousticmindsmusic.com and their reverb nation page: www.reverbnation.com/acousticminds
