Arlo / Up High In The Night - SP516
The debut full-length from Los Angeles pop rockers, Arlo (formerly operating under the name Otto)—pop songs as catchy as they are literate. Early contender for most frequently mis-heard album title of 2001 (i.e. A Pie in the Night).
Released: January 16, 2001
Arlo / Stab The Unstoppable Hero - SP584
Second full-length from Los Angeles power pop alchemists Arlo (the most oft-cited comparisons include The Pixies, Guided by Voices and The Ramones – not bad company to keep). Between now and their January 2001 debut (Up High in the Night), new drummer Tom Sanford has joined the fold, strengthening an already formidable force. Stab the Unstoppable Hero builds upon the groundwork laid with Up High in the Night, adding new dimensions to the pop-rock landscape inhabited by singer-guitarists Nate and Sean (ref. the twang provided by erstwhile Beachwood Sparks/Futher guitarist Josh Schwartz on “Up”) and including songs written by bassist and resident dangerous Beatles freak, Shmed.
Released: June 4, 2002
