Album Notes
Post-emo space-geek power-pop

It's what you might expect from four guys who grew up on classic rock and '80s pop, survived the alt-rock revolution of the '90s and graduated to bands like Built to Spill, Weezer and Sunny Day Real Estate.

It's what happens when intertwining guitar lines, vintage synth sounds and roiling drums and bass collide with stick-in-your-head hooks, hummable melodies and emotionally charged lyrics delivered with conviction and vulnerability.

It's what you'll find on "All My Assumptions Were False," the debut album from Boulder, Colo.-based band fortywatt. From quirky pop songs like the riff-rocker "Surely" and the synth-driven "OK" to spaced-out, abstract numbers like "#DIV/O!" and "Lost in Place," the album is a unique collection of eight originals and one cover song (a punked-up version of Christopher Cross' "Arthur's Theme (The Best That I Can Do)" that is a favorite at live shows) perfected by the band over three years of playing clubs in the Denver, Colorado, area.

Give "All My Assumptions Were False" a spin and find out for yourself just what post-emo space-geek power-pop sounds like.

Onion AV Club called fortywatt "one of the best local bands to hit Denver and Boulder stages recently ... alternating catchy, driving rock with slower, introspective, emo-esque songs"; the Boulder Weekly praised the group for its mix of "a quirky yet sentimental indie edge with gritty guitar textures, producing a sometimes-soft, sometimes-crunchy, usually otherworldly pop sound."



to write a review


excellent. punchy melodies; clever lyrics
all these tunes are keepers! 'rabbit' is a personal favorite - two singers plus percussion that feels like a train equals stuck in your head for days. these dudes should be HUGE.


The definitive post-emo space-geek power-pop CD.
Not being sure what to expect of post-emo space-geek power-pop music, I ordered this CD. Now I know what post-emo space-geek power-pop music means--good listening. Great tunes!

Played It Again This Morning!
I played it again this morning and it was just the pick-me-up I needed to get "up" for work. Mellow with an edge, rockin' but not overbearing, tasteful guitar licks and strong melodies from a McCartneyesque vocalist, every time I hear it I like it more.

Great CD! I play it on repeat at work. Cannot wait for their next one. They have to come and perform in Los Angeles so I can see them live!
