Saturna Review – NY Loves It June 7, 2007

Posted by Ryan in Saturna, Some Delicious Enemy.

Big thanks to Ben Johnson for his amazing review, published in the Staten Island Advance, of Saturna’s new record Some Delicious Enemy.  He calls it “Solidy-produced” and makes comparisons to My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails, and Stereolab.  Check out the whole review below

 “Following its summer 2006 release, “All Night,” the Portland/Seattle indie rock band Saturna has released another disc of promising, solidly-produced music. “Some Delicious Enemy” starts with a giant, My Bloody Valentine-like juggernaut, “Roll Down,” featuring sweeps of electronic noises, a muscular bassline and catchy refrain from singer Ryan Carroll, who sings in a floaty doubled vocal, “This time I’m alive, on my way, a thousand miles away.” And the band keeps it big throughout the disc, with chugging drums and atmospheric sounds sandwiching catchy rock and vocals in between. Electronica-infused alternative rock influences seem to abound here, from the industrial beats of Filter and Nine Inch Nails to the ethereal melodies of Stereolab, but Saturna’s four members are obviously committed to commanding their own identity, and “Some Delicious Enemy” maybe their big break. ”
