With a deep history rooted in their hometown of Eugene, Oregon, Ineffectuals began their sojourn into the indie rock scene in 2007 with their debut, self-titled EP. The band's newest album, Origins, produced by Thaddeus Moore and self released in the fall of 2008, encompasses over five years of writing and working. The 9-track piece blends Wesley Curtis' genuine lyrical stylings and melodic guitar rhythms with Derek Clark's far-out string work, Quinn Cardwell's fervent guitar solos, and Kris Cardwell's maniacal bashing on the drums. Along with various experimental sounds, which are essential to the ebb and flow of the record, the harmony driven guitar parts work to create the organically inspired story-piece. Origins has a fresh, modern, yet natural sound, reflecting Ineffectuals vibrant roots in the Pacific Northwest. With a sound that is reminiscent of bands like Modest Mouse and Built to Spill, Ineffectuals draw influence from all sorts of music, from Pink Floyd to Menomena, Miles Davis, Radiohead, The Beatles and beyond.
