Saturna has continued to get amazing radio support all over North America.  Big thanks to Lisa Wood for playing Just For Thrills on KEXP‘s Audioasis in Seattle, WA and on KUFO‘s Marconi Show in Portland OR. 

Saturna is excited to still be in the Top 10 on San Francisco’s Bagel Radio, coming in this week at number 8.  Thanks a ton Ted!

And last but not least, we are really pleased that DJ Jules at Milwaukee, WI station WMSE has taken a liking to Saturna and has been playing our tunes and giving us props on the air.  You rock Jules!  If you’re in Milwaukee check out her show on Thursdays at 6pm.

Audiversity Give Saturna Rave Review August 9, 2007

Big Thanks to Patrick from Audiversity for writing a long and well thought out review of Some Delicious Enemy.  He likens Saturna to My Bloody Valentine, Spiritualized or modern bands like A Sunny Day In Glasgow or Deerhunter.  He says, “Saturna build sonic monuments out of reverb and delay, crushing cymbals and elephantine roars.”  He also gives us a massive compliment stating that, “Saturna understand perhaps better than their influences right now (Seriously, did you hear Baby 81?) that you cannot build a musical monolith without strong foundations. That is what makes Some Delicious Enemy so incredibly appealing.” 

 Read the whole review here:

When you think Portland and music, what do you think of? If you’ve been reading a whole lot of Spin or Tiny Mix Tapes, you may be thinking in the vein of The Decemberists or Mirah or The Thermals. If you’ve been reading us, you may be thinking Lifesavas or Gouseion (you music-savvy devil, you). If you don’t read any of those things and don’t really care about music, maybe you think of Portland as a hippie outpost or a scag den. I have no defense for the former, but the latter now has a soundtrack courtesy one of its own: Welcome to the world of Saturna, where drugs and swirling guitars and Spiritualized are all part of the repertoire.
