Product Notes

Imagine a power-pop band that takes the smart-pop songwriting of Fountains of Wayne and fuses it with the energy of vintage Cheap Trick. That's Save Pluto. Their debut album, AGE OF LOWERED EXPECTATIONS, is reminiscent of Barenaked Ladies meets Matthew Sweet. It's fun, it's smart, and it rocks. The group's musicianship shines through on the album, with all three band members sharing lead vocal duties on various songs. Shawn Moynihan (vocals, rhythm guitar) and Alan Miller (guitar, vocals), songwriting partners since high school, have been recognized by Billboard Magazine's National Songwriting Contest, and were commissioned to write the theme song for the New York Yankees' minor league team on Staten Island. Miller's guitar skills, displayed prominently on the album, have also been featured in Guitar One Magazine. Gautam Peri completes the lineup on bass and keyboards. Save Pluto's live shows, whether in an electric or more intimate acoustic setting, are full of a loose energy and tangible enthusiasm that can move even New York's "seen-it-all-before" audiences. The band's tongue-in-cheek moniker sums it up. Growing up, one of the album's pervading lyrical themes, can make you feel like a downgraded ex-planet: small, out of orbit, and far, far away from everything. But just like dear deposed Pluto, this is one album -- and one band -- that's worth saving.
