This limited edition release is presented on 180-gram audiophile-quality virgin black vinyl. In addition to the vinyl, this package includes an exclusive bonus CDr (professionally-manufactured), entitled "Inside Waiting For The Time To Be Right". We thought someone who liked the album enough to purchase the vinyl might be interested in peeling away some of its layers, just for curiosity's sake. So on this CDr, you will find alternative mixes of every song on the album. They are not intended to hold up on their own (although they do!), but the intent was to reveal some interesting, intriguing and/or hidden elements that you may not have noticed before. Stripped down, these songs are a powerful, beautiful and emotional tour-de-force - even more than they were to begin with. Providence, Rhode Island's The Brother Kite began crafting their shoegaze-inflected rock sound in 2001, when founding members Patrick Boutwell and Jon Downs began writing and recording original material as a duo. Bassist Andrea Mason and guitarist Mark Howard joined them in 2002, and the band released a split 7" record with friends Vaguely Starshaped on Boston's Losing Blueprint Records. The Brother Kite then released their first full length album on Clairecords, thebrotherkite (2004), a self-titled and self-recorded serving of layered guitars and buoyant melodies. Their ambitious debut earned them nationwide attention from critics and music fans alike. They soon enlisted Matt Rozzero as full-time drummer, and relentlessly toured the east coast, gaining new fans at every show and further refining their unique sound. With the success of thebrotherkite, they were poised to take a bold step, but knew the restrictions of traditional studio recording wouldn't allow for the creative freedom they needed to realize their vision. So they did what any band would do: build their own studio! Waiting For The Time To Be Right is the long-awaited result of this endeavor, a brave new rock record, astonishing not only for its depth and maturity, but also for its willingness to stray from the shoegaze sound that most easily defined their previous works. Layered guitar textures remain, of course, an important ingredient. However, Boutwell's impassioned vocals are now pushed to the forefront, showcasing a Brian Wilson-esque gift for melody hinted at in earlier songs. Guitarist/engineer Downs demonstrates a knack for crafting mini-symphonies out of Boutwell's creations, while drummer Rozzero's skillful percussion adds subtle new dimensions at every turn. Include Mason's rock-solid bass and Howard's elegant lead guitar, and the result is an album of dynamically orchestrated pop, equal parts Loveless and Smile, Quadrophenia and The Soft Bulletin. With Waiting For The Time To Be Right, The Brother Kite respectfully pay homage to some of rock's great achievements, while carving out an innovative spot for themselves in the world of today's independent music.
