Saturna is excited that Straight Magazine reports that one of their hero’s, Bob Mould named them as one of his recent favorite bands and ask them to open for him on his upcoming tour.

Easily Fooled, a blog from San Francisco reviewed the show that Saturna opened for Bob Mould at The Great American Music Hall saying, “Saturna opened the show, and they sounded really good, both poppy and rock–and I don’t mean emo! Their guitarist, especially, produced some wonderful tones. One song took me right back to Killing Joke, the Chameleons, Echo and the Bunnymen and that guitar sound I love so much. Another, with its huge wall of heavy but melodic guitar, may not have existed at all were it not for likes of Bob and other musical pioneers. They paid the obligatory homage to Bob, but I get the feeling that they really meant it.”

Glad you enjoyed it Brad and you’re welcome Rone!

Check out the new review of Saturna’s Some Delicious Enemy in Twangville.  Todd says, “Hints of BRMC, The Tender Idols and Primal Scream abound on Saturna’s new album Some Delicious Enemy.  Lush guitars, delay and feedback mixed with pulsing drums make the Portland, Oregon band a great find for fans of Brit-Pop.”

Thanks to Indie Dance Floor for including an mp3 of Saturna’s Pop Rocks along with amazing songs from Goldfrapp, Nick Cave, The Long Blondes, Cut Copy and tons more.
