STRANGERS IN A STRANGE LAND is Paul Kopf, Alec Palao and Derek See, with honorary Stranger, Prairie Prince on drums. Produced and engineered by Palao, their debut is in the well-informed, reverent yet discerning style these San Francisco-based veterans are known for: pop music with a reverence for the past, yet it’s eye fixed firmly on the future, delivered with twice as much energy as fellows half the age.

Sarcastic rockers like ‘The Taxidermist’ and ‘Half Century’ contrast with harmony aplenty on ‘A Shadow On The Wall,’ and a heartbreaking performance on ‘Black And White’ that would do Robin Gibb proud. ‘Onomatopoiea’ lifts the chord sequence from an obscure Gene Clark tune and adds new melody and lyric to create an updated take on the great man’s world-weary vision. The rocking ‘All Wound Up’ – a hymn to frustration that rings all too true in todays world – is Strangers’ musical mission statement of sorts, but nothing on this exciting release is predictable. Check it out!
