Captain Genius is here to save the world! 'Part Fountains Of Wayne, part early Weezer, early Supergrass and Nada Surf and plenty of new wave power poppin' charm! The band dole out instantly digestible melodies; short and tuneful solos; bottom-heavy distorted Starting with crunchier-than-Pringles guitar chords, the band hurtles into a grungy sing-along with big sounds, bigger hooks and more than a handful of very memorable poppin' tunes.' - NotLame.com Staff Review '...ahead of the power-pop-rocking pack... constantly surprises the listener...' - NoHoLA news magazine 'Power pop the way it's supposed to be... a cool delight.' - Santa Monica Mirror review (best of 2002) L.A.'s Captain Genius gets it's unique sound from a blend of melodic power-pop, old school rock and roll, and a hint of roots music. CG lives somewhere between Fountains of Wayne and Wilco, and around the corner from Matthew Sweet and Weezer. Matthew Stephen Young, the band's singer/guitarist offers clever, vulnerable and sincere lyrics to the band's powerful sound. Bassist Kevin Danczak and drummer Chris K. provide a super-tight backbeat while keyboardist David Keeton adds lush organ and piano parts, as well as groovy space-synth sounds. CG's dynamic debut CD gives the listener ten very catchy, rockin' pop songs. Enjoy.
