 Notes & Reviews
On their third release, Opposite Shores, The Dandelion War simplified their approach, relying less on electronics and more on analog instrumentation. The result, recorded on 2' tape at San Francisco's legendary Tiny Telephone, is a collection of songs that maintain the band's established blend of ambient indie and post-rock while adding heightened senses of intimacy and urgency. The songs are loosely organized around a theme of bridges, focusing on isolation and the challenging process of establishing links between disconnected people and places. Opposite Shores has some of the heaviest music the band has produced, as well as the most fragile. Praise for previous releases by the Dandelion War: We Were Always Loyal To Lost Causes is one of the most attractive albums that you will hear this year...as a close to a perfect post-rock album as you can get. - Absolute Punk Music this intricate and delicate is not made in a hurry; an impressive record of powerful beauty. The Big Takeover The Dandelion War writes songs that plod along with glacial elegance, buoyed by Larry FernAndez' ghostly vocals, a warm wash of background harmonies, and the occasional peal of bells. The instrumentation is just beautiful. - East Bay Express The Dandelion War makes mood music for the brain. The post-rock five-piece boasts the build ups and crescendos of Explosions, the alien echoing otherworldliness of mid-career Radiohead, the pleasing falsetto and hypnotic soundscapes of the Antlers, and tiny pulsing heartbeat and cave-deep reverb of a dewy Sigur Ros. - San Francisco Bay Guardian.
