Los Alamos is in for an “ultra-funky, organic, electronic experiment.”
Some listeners will think of Pink Floyd or Air. Others, of Herbie Hancock. Others, of contemporary electronica bands like Sigur Ros or The Beta Band.
The Frequency, however, have a style all their own.
On its Myspace page, the Los Angeles-based group describes its sound as “a reflection of things old and new,” and its inspiration as coming from “a love of Moogs, the sound of a real Fender Rhodes piano and vintage Fender amps.”
Los Alamos residents might have heard The Frequency’s “Jim Gordon Part II” on a Blackberry commercial – the one with the guy hitting a golf ball – part of Blackberry’s worldwide campaign.
The song is off The Frequency’s self-produced, self-titled EP, which also caught the attention of Ropeadope Records founder Andy Hurwitz. He signed the band immediately.
In February 2007, Ropeadope released a five-song digital EP and a full-length album, titled “We are the Same Machine,” is now available exclusively on the band’s website, www.thefrequencymusic.net/wearethesamemachine.
