Brian López

Add Date: February 14 

Artist: Brian López

Album: Ultra 

Label: Funzalo 

Genre: Rock, pop 

Comments: From the promoter: "On his first full-length album, Ultra, Brian López's infatuation with the sonics and atmospherics of Radiohead's OK Computer is evident, as is his scrutiny of how Thom Yorke goes about making the personal public without losing either his dignity or his soul."

Very few artists are able to combine pop and atmospheric rock as successfully as López does here. I  instantly began to enjoy this record for its classical influence mixed in with sweet pop melodies. The major downfall is how similar some of it sounds to Radiohead (which he seems to own, at least). Start with 2, 3 and 1.
