Synopsis

Album Description
Since forming in early 2004, Siberian has managed to generate a significant buzz within the indie music scene. Siberian's original four song demo, though never intended for release, was circulated throughout the Seattle area, earning the band a loyal fan base, radio play, and enthusiastic praise from local critics. Described as stunning and dynamic, their music skates a delicate balance between gorgeous pop melodies and unique compositions, creating a sound that is as interesting as it is beautiful. With Me, their debut full length, has received rave reviews and earned them a spot at the recent 2008 Sasquatch Festival.

CD Reviews

Very solid debut album of Seattle indie-rockers
Paul Allaer | Cincinnati | 01/09/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Let me state upfront that I knew very little, ok nothing, about Siberian until I heard them on internet-only indie-rock station WOXY, "The Future of Rock and Roll", and as soon as I heard them, I knew I had to check out more of this band. Apparently, the band has been together since 2004, and after an initial EP, their debut album was released in Fall, 2007.

"With Me" (11 tracks, 43 min.) starts off with the best song on the album, a brilliant "Belgian Beer and Catholic Girls" (and it has nothing to do with the fact that I'm from Belgium originally...): a sound reminiscent of Editors, a sniff of Interpol, even early Radiohead (and no, not Queens of the Stone Ages...). After that follows an equally appealing "Paper Birds", the best known song of the band and the only song on here which also appeared on the earlier EP. Other highlights for me include "Futuristic Kids", one of the many uptempo songs on the album, with great interplay between the 2 electric guitars, and "Wolf and Crane". There are 2 slower, reflective songs towards the end of the album, "Georg Bendemann" and the beautiful closer "Islands Forever".

In all, "With Me" is a terrific album, and I can only hope that Siberian will take this on the road outside the Northwest of the country, where they play regularly. Can't wait to see how these guys sound live. Highly recommended!"
This should go national

"This is a great disc and well worth the money. The second track, "Paper Birds" was played by our local station here in Seattle, and by the second chorus I knew that I had to check out the whole disc. "Paper Birds" is definitely the stand-out track, but there are many other nice tracks as well that feel familiar the second time you hear them.

Like all great rock, a lot of the sounds are derivative of other good bands. I hear Radiohead, Muse, Modest Mouse, Queens of the Stone Age.

The tracks sound perfect, very polished and mixed beautifully for headphones. I always fear early releases because they frequently sound like they were recorded on-the-cheap; not so here. This record sounds as well-produced as any national major-label record does.

Support these guys by checking out their disc. I'm looking forward to seeing them live very soon!"
