Product Notes

After independently releasing three EP's and one LP, then their debut album for NeedleDrop Records, Somewhere, all to much positive critical response, Chicago's Quiet Kid have delivered their third long-player. It is a disc of considerable standing - an album of purpose. A Bright White Light is just that. It is a collection of inspired and inspiring songs meant to stir the soul and drive the heel. With a band lineup stabilized since 2004, the five individuals in Quiet Kid (Jamie Bachmann, Mark Hughes, John Llewellyn, Chris Meiferdt, and Stevie Weber) have come together into a powerful cohesive unit. While the inception of some of the tunes have clearly come from Bachmann, as in recordings past, the almost Burrito Brothers-esque, "Mallory", was a Llewellyn-Bachmann effort, and fully half of the record was conceived out of full-band "jams" in Quiet Kid's rehearsal space. The results are a striking work of a band flexing it's musical muscles. Throughout the course of the disc, Quiet Kid continue the Post-Mod tradition with up-tempo, aggressive, R&B infused pop music. It is edgy. It is familiar. It is not, however, simple. From the album's opener, "The Soundtrack Could Be Better", to it's finale, "Tru-Fi", it is clear the band have an agenda: imparting a message of maintaining independence, embracing action, and instilling hope. The trademark hooks are there, along with the grinding guitars and the driving rhythm section, but there are surprises. Keyboard player, Chris Meiferdt's, use of various technologies has become decidedly more present, and integral. The dynamics within songs, and from song to song, are more prevalent...among many other surprises. Deftly recorded by Eric Block at Chicago's Semaphore Recording, and co-produced by Block and the band, themselves, A Bright White Light is deeper and more broad an effort than Quiet Kid, and most bands, have ever executed. It is at the same time joyous and foreboding, critical and hopeful. It is an album to be listened to where you live, and in your car, at high volume, over and over again, for a long period of time.
