AM to AM / Press

“AM to AM: All Day Every Day —by Alicia Fiorletta, August 18, 2010 Jon Schmidt and Will Tendy of New York glam pop/rock troupe Morningwood have created new side project AM To AM by adding three more musicians, pounding bass rhythms, peppy harmonies and slamming guitar riffs. Although there is traditional rock influence in the five-piece’s sound, there is a takeover of contagious, foot-tapping dance pop and sudden bursts of mind-numbing synth work that makes comparisons to club/rock bands like InnerPartySystem inevitable. AM to AM will play Crash Mansion to celebrate the release of their self-titled EP on Aug. 19. $8. 21+”

“Side projects and super-groups are on the rise, and AM to AM is one of the new and noteworthy. Fashioned and fronted by Jon Schmidt and Will Tendy of New York’s Morningwood, AM to AM is perfectly power-poppy just like their previous project. However, this quintet augments their sound with electronic elements, a grungy edge, and a concoction of danceable rhythms. “Sew” ties together a series of dynamic guitar riffs and falsetto vocals, qualities that become signature “AM to AM” features. The syncopation and tension of “Pop as Science ” quiet to a shuffle that transitions into the forcefully quick “Outline,” while title track “AM to AM” slinks along with hushed vocals, synths, and strings, exploding into a sinister chorus. "Feed Me to the Ghoul” serves up a feast of electro-effects and techno beats, and concluding “Mirror Clear” decelerates into a waltzing, fusion of brass. AM to AM will be out on the town, August 19th at Crash Mansion.”

“Morningwood Members for New Band, AM to AM Jon Schmidt and Will Tendy, still active members of the MTV/VH1/Capitol Records band Morningwood, have stretched their creative muscles by forming a new band, AM to AM, with a sound that still carries the same rocking foundation that Morningwood boasts, but changes up the sound with harmonies, rhythm mastery and an electronic edge. Joined by Sarah Goldstone on keyboards, Zach Cooper on bass, and Lou Pomposello on guitar, they create a rock solid sound complimented by a delicate touch of scorching pop lines. The five-piece band plays in a progressive pop-rock style a la Elvis Costello with a heavy electronic influence. ”
