Sentinel / Press

“Sentinel with their dreamy easy listening brand of #IndiePop a great way to start the weekend. #Unsigned http://sentineldream.bandcamp.com/”

“The cosmic sound waves carry you through this album. This isn’t necessarily about getting a message across, but the Dream Pop band is more about pleasing listeners aesthetically. Dennis Bestafka’s synthed-out guitar along with the feather touch of Bill Mowery on the drums blends perfectly with Tarabud’s vocals.”

“Sentinel keeps the mind actively dreaming across a number of exceptional tracks, with the rock solid instrumentation from Dennis and Billy and the lovely vocals of singer Tarabud helping tie it all together. Some of our favorites include the inspiring pop song, “Wonder Reeling”, a native american inspired wonder, “Yahmanee”, the Freddy Jones-esque daydreaming riffs behind “Shiloh Sky”, with a special nod toward a blanket of stars dreamt up in our minds eye listening to the guitar-work on “Voices Say”.”

“Based out of San Francisco, dream pop trio Sentinel have released their fifth, independent LP Points of Light this week. With polished and chromatic textures, and dreamy vocals, the band has also shared the featured track from the album “The Innocence”.”

"Creating a beautiful and effervescent take on dream pop inspired by the legendary forebears of U2, My Bloody Valentine, and The Smiths, this band, active since 2000, have numerous albums and singles to their credit. Utilizing a lovestruck New Romantic aesthetic that hasn’t been in vogue since the glory days of MTV combined with the icily beautiful songwriting and vocals of its lead singer, it’s a treat for those who think 120 Minutes isn’t enough."

“Sentinel in the Top 20 bands of Bay Area!”

“Sentinel, a dream-pop band from Oakland has returned with another very solid effort on their May 2008 release, “Kites Without Strings”. Avalanche is the second track off their new CD, a beautiful and ethereal pop-driven snapshot portraying jumping into the quick moving avalanche of newfound love”

“I’ve already enjoyed several listens and viewings and can’t get enough of how the instrumentals really smash through at the end during mystic hour on the beach w/ the elemental trio engaged in some sort of ceremony well into the moonlit night.”

“Sentinel are back again. Kites Without Strings is a fairly short album (8 tracks) but its packing a punch. They seem far bolder than ever before – rocking up the rock aspect of their act as well as the vocals being as dreamy as ever.”

"Kites Without Strings" erupts like one long, happy wall of sound. Most of the songs on the album employ a similar upbeat pop vibe, creating a cohesive quality
