Fathom Lane is set to release their second full length record in just over a year. Their debut 'Down By Half' was critically lauded and garnered some heavy airplay across the country. Just a year later, the new self titled release is already getting attention. L'etoile magazine writes: "Fathom Lane's self-titled second record is a tremendous step forward. Their last, 'Down By Half', was a quite remarkable damn thing, a record of elegiac beauty that sounded like a cross between the Cowboy Junkies and, you know, someone less boring than the Cowboy Junkies, a Johnny Cash or someone with a touch of murder in his soul. This one, though, is 3/4 to Jimmy Webb-land full of complex melodies, jazzy harmonies (courtesy the phenomenal Ashleigh Still) wrapped around a country heart and unexpected arrangement touches that jump out of nowhere. It's another example of how quiet works marvelously.
Originally a solo project by Cobey Rouse, batteryboy has grown to include vocalist/violinist Shannon Frid (Cloud Cult) and keyboardist/guitarist Eric Carranza. Frid and Carranza are the perfect, polished complement of beauty and composure to Rouse's frantic display of acoustic guitar strumming, heartfelt vocals and pedal-pounding of his three floor drums.
