In the mean time, here are some fine reviews of our latest release "Curved Space" ------------------ "a genuine masterpiece" (Draw Us Lines) "understated start-to-finish winner". Howard Wyman’s Top Ten Albums of 2010. Crawdaddy Magazine. Spires rumbling like crazy on this one, Sub-rosa lyrical righteousness, get this EP ( LA Record) " the seven songs on Curved Space are uniformly splendid and these 23 minutes leave the listener wanting more" (ALLMUSIC GUIDE) "This is great! California band does a kind of ragged, reverb-drenched pop music that swaddles easy-to-love choruses in buckets of echo. Really really great" (17 Dots) "a record that’s just punchy enough to catch us off guard and give us reason to fall in love with The Spires all over again" (SB Independent) "The tracks have a magical quality of spilling into one another to give a dreamlike, tableaux effect" (Radio Free Silverlake) "Sweet & sour pop buried in reverb and dischordal euphoria" (BIYL) http://soundcloud.com/spireshq SETH PETTERSEN was born and raised in Ventura County California.
