Saturna is pleased that #1 Hits From Another Planet has written up Saturna.  They particularly liked Just For Thrills and interestingly enough said it reminded them of what Snow Patrol would sound like if they were “amped up”.


A secret MP3 blog from Spain,  A Silent Room, has posted some Saturna songs from Some Delicious Enemy.


and MP3Blog from Switzerland has just found the …All Night EP: http://www.mp3blog.ch/mp3blog/?p=808

Saturna has been garnering reviews from all over the world, but most recently from various parts of Spain. 


Rated-Muzik says some amazing things about Saturna, even comparing Some Delicious Enemy to BRMC and to Doves album The Last Broadcast

Check out the whole review here: http://rated-muzik.com/2007/04/24/saturna-some-delicious-enemy/

Lito Music also wrote a great review saying that Saturna employs sweet melodies and fiery guitars.  They also mention that Chasing The Unpredictable, one of the songs used in Bam’s Unholy Union, is their favorite song on Some Delicious Enemy.

Check out Lito Music here: http://litomusic.blogspot.com/2007/04/saturna.html

And last but not least Planeta Pop has the following to say about Some Delicious Enemy,

“Rock, power pop y brit pop. En esos estilos se mueven bien Saturna, el grupo norteamericano que despúes de publicar un ep el año pasado nos presentan ahora Some Delicious Enemy, su primer álbum. Puedes descargar aquí Fall y Pop Rocks, dos de sus diez canciones.”


Saturna Really Loves Music April 23, 2007

Posted by Ryan in Saturna, Some Delicious Enemy.

 Saturna is pleased to that UK blog I Really Love Music has written such a glowing review of Some Delicious Enemy.   The lengthy and well thought out review starts out with this;

 “The album that the band have self released is a cracker of the usual elements, drawn out guitar lines, layers of guitars and lazy sunshine kissed melodies with hints of darkness hidden away in the corners. despite the lack of record label budget, superb opener Roll Down even manages to revive those backward underwater guitars that Kevin Shields took years to create for the My Bloody Valentine masterpiece, Loveless.

He also writes, “Pop Rocks really hits the pleasure spot with an obvious love for snarled lip arrogance of early days BRMC, but with an interesting use of layered vocals and beach boys styled breakdown in the middle before the guitars are let loose again.

You’ve got to read the whole review yourself here:  http://ireallylovemusic.vox.com/library/post/saturna—some-delicious-enemy.html

Saturna is also pleased to provide the light at the end of the tunnel for a Greek blogger amidst her sorrow:  http://soundsofmine.pblogs.gr/2007/04/you-gave-me-hope-amidst-my-sorrow.html

Big thanks to Adam from NY blog HaHaMusic from writing about Some Delicious Enemy and posting links to Pop Rocks and Roll Down.   He says,”Saturna, out of Portland, pair a more epic sound (especially on the track “Roll Down,” which has been on repeat around here for the past few days) with a leather jacket garage-rock mentality, to great result.”

Mars Needs Saturna April 21, 2007

We are excited to announce that Merz from Mars Needs Guitars has jumped on board the Saturna bandwagon and has written a nice review of Some Delicious Enemy.    He says, “All the right hooks are in place, ethereal guitars, echoing vocals, and a tight rhythm section make for one of the best new indie albums I have heard all year. Yeah, I am biased when it comes to Shoegaze but these guys have the chops to do it right. And it’s all not just shoegaze but just overall damn good rock ‘n roll. These guys are going places and what a sweet ride it will be.”

Thanks for the kind words, Merz.

Saturna Visit Berkeley Place April 20, 2007

Posted by Ryan in Saturna, Some Delicious Enemy.

Saturna friend Berkeley Place, from Brooklyn, NY has written a lovely review of Some Delicious Enemy.  Its a pretty long review that goes in detail about specific songs, so I suggest you read the whole thing, but here is a short excerpt. 

“Saturna’s debut EP was an inspiration of hook-based shoegazer. And their first full-length, “Some Delicious Enemy,” is even better—mixing dreamy swirls
of contemplation with hard-driving rock and roll in the style of The Kills, The Exit, or even Guns N’ Roses.”

We’re so happy that Berkeley Place has continued to support indie music after all the trouble they’ve had with the evil RIAA.  We are pleased that we were a part of keeping Berkely Place alive.

Big thanks to Kate from The Glorious Hum who reviewed Some Delicious Enemy today.  Since its a short and sweet review, we will post it here in our entirety, but please check out her blog since she has a ton of other interesting things going on.  

Here’s what Kate has to say; “Lately I’ve been enjoying Saturna’s upcoming album, Some Delicious Enemy, which feels like ambient rock’s soundtrack to a cross-country road trip – though in a convertible with the top off, and with some pit stops for clubbing and heartbreak.”

Thanks to Chris from Music of the Moment, for writing up Saturna’s Some Delicious Enemy.   In his post, he talked about how he usually does a Flashback Friday, but that with all the good music floating around right now, he had to focus on that.  We are pleased that he chose Saturna out of the pack.  Check out his whole review here:
