H Farine Un album qui vous requinque. Le rythme et la voix vous emmènent avec ténacité et persuasion. Well done, this music just warms me up : There is some fire in this voice. Keep it burning. Favorite track: Something Good.

Lute FP I listen to this for the vocalist, the same who did the fantastic Goldbloc EP. The music on this is slickly produced indie-rock, whereas Goldbloc is more like Hip-hop/Electronica, but both albums serve very well as a vehicle for her voice. God, I love this woman's voice.

GAT I fell in love with this band after a couple listens of this and their EP. But I can't quite put my finger on what this band does. It isn't just the gorgeous lead vocals, the layered background vocals, the solid guitar work, the gentle melodies, or the jazz percussions. When all other explanations fail, we are left with bassist. Favorite track: Castellana.

Evan Witt Got really excited to see another release from Atlas Lab, but was a tiny bit skeptical when I saw that it had three "revamped" overlapping songs with the EP. How could those tracks be made any better? That skepticism went out the window as soon as I listened to the updated Castellna. Each track, including the ones revamped from the EP, come off fresh, soulful, and incredibly warm. Richly layered instrumentals and seductive vocals make this album a must have. Favorite track: SteadFast Mind.

about

"Wake Up Slow" is the opening track off Atlas Lab's official debut. The band made a conscious decision to release an "all new" song for their fans who had enjoyed their previous effort which was a three track demo. Atlas Lab opted to keep 3 song off of their demo and have them appear revamped on "Wake Up Slow." One thing I can say about "Wake Up Slow." It's been a long time coming and I personally have been patiently awaiting the release of this EP. There are no "Rock Stars" or ego driven personalities within Atlas Lab. They are a band in every sense of the word. More and more in the present day it seems the "idea" of actually having a band with 3-5 members or more is becoming few and far between. I love the classic organic sense of song development that is heard throughout "Wake Up Slow." It's as though you can tell each and every one of these songs started with nothing more than a little guitar riff or a bass groove; springing in to an ocean of dark lite all nite diners, where the silence has set in and the band with it's gear has long packed up and headed towards their next tour stop. Yet the reflector re appears and throbs as a winded panther. The relentless throb of "Wake Up Slow" is very apparent, however for Atlas Lab's lead singer Solei; outliving the shadow of her massively successful debut with Goldbloc is an increasingly difficult task.https://crlsscllctive.bandcamp.com/album/goldbloc-black-gold
She manages to be the strongest instrument on every song on "Wake Up Slow." Her voice making you feel so at home, yet so alone. The kind of girl that could tell you she's going to kill you and you still hold her hand. Atlas Lab rides a fine line of the classic bar band MO with the classic rock instrumentation: guitar, drums, bass. When I think about it there are so many great vocalists out there that just simply need the right band to be paired up with. This is a storybook memo. Bold as it may seem to say; Solei is the reason you'll listen to Atlas Lab's Wake Up Slow." Fact. Her instrument is as profound as the song itself and cuts through every chance it has. "Wake Up Slow" I admit, doesn't have the instant pop success appeal that Goldbloc had. One thing it is chalk full of; SOUL and hope. Feeling it your veins as you remember who you were before you became who you are.
