LOS ANGELES (Brash Music) - Brash Recording artists ISIDORE has been making waves with its self-titled debut in the press and on radio. Made up of The Church's Steve Kilbey and former Remy Zero
guitarist Jeffrey Cain, Isidore has impacted rock radio trade magazine FMQB and its album moves up to No 3 on its Top 25 Sub Modern
Specialty Album chart.
The single "Musidora" moves up as well to No 5 in the trade's corresponding singles chart. With Chicago's WXRT, Atlanta's WNNX, and St. Louis' KPNT, among the stations spinning "Musidora", it's only a matter of time before this project takes full flight.
As vocalist, songwriter and bassist of the seminal alt-guitar band, The Church, Kilbey traipsed through the last two and a half decades, releasing critically-acclaimed album after album. The band saw huge mainstream success with their 1988 breakthrough Starfish that spawned the hits "Reptile" and "Under a Milky
Way." As guitarist for Remy Zero, Cain had seen his band through successes of critically-hailed records and even incidental acclaim through their song "Save Me
" which is the theme song to the WB's No 1 television show, "Smallville".
Isidore was born when Cain mailed Kilbey a basic instrumental track and Kilbey added lyrics, thus spawning the track "Transmigration". The musical correspondence resulted in the eleven-tracked debut, Isidore, which journalist Robert Cherry called "devastatingly gorgeous."
Isidore is an exploration of textures, layers, and deeply personal ideas and melodies. Sounding at times like a combination of both The Church and Remy Zero, while simultaneously sounding like neither, the album flows from the rhythmic "Ghosting," to the meanderingly soothing "Transmigration," to the soaring, guitar-driven opening track "Musidora," without losing its continuity or rhythm.
