Slow going

Ted Pappadopoulos

After a fiery response to kicking in on this project, ( a bit red faced ) the story here seems to have run pretty thin. This will change shortly.

Six months of chipping away at the stone have produced 19 mixed songs. This puts us just a couple steps away from mastering.

The New Siberians Self TITLED review

Ted Pappadopoulos

Here is another review ( sadly not from Belgium ) from author Alex Green on our 2007 debut

“I don’t write my songs at all/Like the way that you do,” sings The New Siberians’ Brendan Devitt. He’s not kidding. This Burlington, Vermont trio which is comprised of former members of Go To Blazes and the Ninja Custodians, are one of those rare bands that aren’t afraid to throw conventional songwriting principles aside and take big chances. That being said, The New Siberians’ strategy is to bury themselves under inventive arrangements and then see if they can climb back out. The thing is, they always do. Filled with big, melodic rockers (”Seeds & Stems” and “Hearts”) catchy mid-tempo numbers (”Really Doesn't Matter”) and irresistible acoustic tracks (”Colorblind”) the band’s debut is an enervating brand of American rock and roll.

Elsewhere, “Star” brings to mind a more muscular Crowded House; “Happy Again” is a crunchy blast of harmonic bombast and “Vulture” has an unbeatable bluesy swagger. With a cast of supporting musicians who throw in doses of saxophone, mandolin, violin and whatever else comes to mind (Bob Higgins’ billed contribution is “secret guitars”), The New Siberians is a truly engaging listen. What makes this band so special is that even when the hooks are direct, like on “Gasoline” there’s always a presiding musical chaos that makes every track layered in intriguing sonic complexity.

One Belgian seems to like us

One Belgian seems to like us - if i can follow the gist of this bad Google translation. Review of our debut cd - translated mediumly ;/

The first full CD of The New Siberians untitled has recently appeared on the market. This group is formed by three men from Burlington, Vermont, USA namely Brendan Devitt Simon Plumpton and Ted Pappadopoulos. They claim to be regular guys with regular habits who believe that music may help to confused minds and broken hearts to stabbing a heartened. Who are we to contradict them?

Life is now once out of sadness and joy, with some sense of reality and a refreshing pint already a lot to contribute to improvement. On this debut album they bring modern pop and rock songs in which I told the young Beatles occasional corpse back. In the 15 self-penned songs on this CD is mainly fresh production from Tom Dube on. The producer made is name and fame in such as Richard Thompson, Marc Cohn and Juliana Hatfield.

He makes this trio will enjoy the guitars in some Pixies-like rock songs such as "Hearts", "Happy Again", "In The Garden", "Vulture" and "Gasoline". But there is also some hit potential work can be found in eg "Seeds & Stems", "Speed ial", "Star" and "Really Does not Matter". In terms of off vocals lean The New Siberians and far closer to the songs of Crowded House and in the field of music by Dan Fogelberg, especially in "Color Blind", a song which I mostly try to remember the following: "Let me paint a portrait or living in my mind, you can choose the colors cause I am colorblind. "The mandolin is even brought up in the beautifully sung quieter song" Powder ". Rocksongs prevail on this debut album, but my preference clearly goes to the quieter songs where the vocal qualities of Brendan Devitt can best be expressed. (Valsam)
