   About KapOw!
"When the touring company of The Fiery Furnaces swapped out Toshi Yano for ex-Sebadoh plucker Jason Loewenstein, they sacrificed a bit of swagger and versatility (Yano was second-chair keyboardist)... qualities were transferred to Yano's new band Kapow!, whose comic-book sound-effect name foreshadows their era-influence of choice, (but) avoids being nostalgia-drunk by DeLoreaning a blippy synth into the garage; harmonized bored-slur vocals and isolated feedback bursts cloud up the sunny-day lyrics. A reminder that pop always saves the day, and indicates Yano absorbed more than a little bit about playfully skewed refractions of rock history from his former employers." - PITCHFORK

"IRRESISTABLE." - Jon Pareles, The New York Times

"A wall of sound that'd give Phil Spector shivers." - Jersey Beat

"Fresh, vibrant." - Fluxblog

"A breath of fresh air..." - You Ain’t No Picasso

"DANCE!" - Awreye

Hey :)

Check it out! I wrote a free book on music production! It's for total beginners, but if you aren't new to music production, maybe you'll still learn something... at least you can send it to your friends who always want to ask you a billion questions about music production! It's totally free too; my goal with this is to accumulate as many BFF's as possible.

To download, go to http://www. donimusic. com/musicproductionschool/

Keep on increasing that peace!
