Product Notes

Luke's Angels began in the early '90s as a trio of friends in high school orchestra. When orchestra let out, it was friendship that found the gals sharing their common interest in popular rock bands Throwing Muses, The Breeders, PJ Harvey & Sonic Youth and eventually exchanging their classical instruments for electric guitars. A short-lived cover band project came and went and the girls parted to see what else life had in store for them. Fast-forward to 2001 when the gals found themselves together in Minneapolis, fingers burning to pick up their guitars again. With drummer, Jamie, on board, the band started writing songs and playing better shows. Having recently finished recording their self-titled, first full-length album, the band has finally defined their sound and is ready to rock. 'A collegiate, no-frills quartet led by two sisters, their debut CD is like a re-broadcast of MTV's '120 Minutes,' with echoes of Throwing Muses, the Breeders and more.' - Chris Riemenschneider, Star Tribune Staff Writer 'The Angels' sound is characterized by the contrast between Carson and Jennie Kalpin's sugar-pop harmonies and Melissa's whip-smart lead guitar-an update on the old Pixies paradigm of quiet-loud-quiet. On 'One Small Glimpse,' the opener of their self-titled debut, the girls' voices beat a so-in-love lyric ('I see hidden words arise/In one small glimpse through your eyes') into sea foam before Melissa strafes her own words with a firing squad of chords.' - Steve Marsh, City Pages 'This three-gals-and-a-guy outfit packs in surf-pop pep like a crowded Beetle beach-bound on a sunny Saturday. Imagine the Breeders in their heyday: Drummer Jamie Bollman's upswing rhythm cries, 'Tequila!'; dual vocalists Amy Carson and Jennie Kalpin serve up the requisite 'ooh-ah' harmonies; lead guitarist Melissa Kalpin is too busy crafting that full-throttle punk lick to sing. Their eponymous debut befits both an Indian summer top-down cruise and a late-night bar crawl. Beware of head-bob whiplash.' - Kate Silver, freelance writer and City Pages 'Picked to Click' judge 'The Jacques Wait-produced eponymous album from Luke's Angels rocks from the start with opener 'One Small Glimpse.' The song grabs you in seconds as if late Joy Division/ early New Order had been fuel-injected and met the Go Go's. And if you think that's too good to be true, the 10-song album sustains it's top-notch quality throughout.' - David de Young, editor, HowWasTheShow (howwastheshow.com)
