Model A - Transmission Lost
The first time I heard Model A play live, I was blown away! I was standing on top of a light tower at a concert
working a couple of liquid projectors. Model A started their set with the song, "The Wasted Line". Patrick, their incredible guitarist, drifted it in with a slow and tasty feedback electronic wind up and then all of a
sudden the whole band hits a down beat like they have one brain and they start doing CPR on my chest. After a few bars Brandon's high clear voice floats over the music like a sparkling psychedelic cloud and the song starts
reving up like a freight train leaving the station!
I was stunned! My ears were dancing and my hair was on fire! I have not heard a band sound that good for a long,
Model A has a sound that is mind-expanding, textural, powerful, loud, poly-rhythmic, psychedelic,
beautiful, and moving, all at the same time. Their sound runs and flows like a liquid silver hallucination and it hammers like German steel on a cold anvil.
Trying to tell you who they sound like is a waste of time. But, I can tell you two things. First, Model A's
second album "Transmission Lost" is very cool. It's the kind of album that you play on a hot summer night while cruising down a California freeway with your top down and the volume cranked all the way up. Second, if
these guys ever get the kind of management they deserve, they will be huge.
