the cambiata - "to heal" (2008)

describing this band is going to be difficult. i can't think of a single band they sound like, and their ep is too diverse to put into any one genre. there's strings, horns, keys.. there's crooning vocals (think somewhere between daniel johns and a young daryl palumbo), intense melodies, interesting lyrics.. it's all here. with influences like the beatles, radiohead, silverchair, and jeff buckley, it's no wonder this twenty-seven minute ep is such an epic listen.

since it's a new release, i'm not posting their ep. i bought it off their myspace page last night, and it's worth every penny of the five bucks i spent. so i'm highly suggesting you do the same. check out the tracks on their myspace, and i promise.. you'll definitely be picking up what these guys are putting down.

believe the hype.

listen to the cambiata on myspace.

ps i've never heard these guys mentioned anywhere, so i'm curious as to what people think. hook it up with some feedback.

pss i'm going to do a post about their lead singer's old band later. more on the post hardcore tip, but also a worthwhile listen.

wow, I can really dig what I'm hearing here. So different. I think I'm getting that feeling I got when I first heard of Foxy Shazam(Flamingo Trigger era). Good rec dude.

I'm a HUGE fan of this band from Maine, and it's great to see this band getting some props, because To Heal is a truly great record. Five songs that pack more punch than I've heard in a while.

I love this band as well, they are definately amazing, and to see that they went on tour I believe it was last summer was so exciting. As much as I love having close access to their shows its good to see these guys are becoming something a little bigger than a local Maine band.

Oh, and to see them live is fun! The vocals are just as good, but Chris definately has fun with being up there. A couple shows I've been to he was rolling around on stage singing :]

I love Cambiata <3

ive been listening to the cambiata ever since chris moultons old band spilt up "in the arms of providence" which is also a great record if you have the time i suggest checking it out. But the cambiata is one of the most talented groups ive ever heard. Ive been to plenty of their shows, hung out with them a few times, just all around awesome guys and i hope they keep making music and making us all happy.

The Cambiata is an amazing band. They are a huge influence to me and my music. I've been listening to these guys since they started. Amazingly amazing band and some of the best songs I've ever heard. And you can't forget their lyrics. Great writing.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
