Description:

(ID 1206704)
An envigorating style that combines classic songwriting (think Paul McCartney, Paul Simon) and the decorations of Cornelius/Postal Service; truly, an awesome experience.

Details:
Kittyâs Musicbox is the recording project of Philip Amler and Kolby Knickerbocker. Their songs are primarily guitar driven rock fleshed out with an electronic symphony of strings, organs, beeps and buzzes. An eclectic group of other live instruments pepper the tracks (melodica, sitar, didgeridoo), reflecting the duoâs varied influences. While the tempo is almost always upbeat, the songs cover subjects like unfeeling machines (Science Project), mourning a lost relationship through one night stands (The Places You Werenât Kicked Around), and the apathy of coffeehouse audiences (Open Mic).

Philip and Kolby first started collaborating in the realm of improv comedy at their university. Occasionally, a guitar would be brought to practice for musical games and each noticed the otherâs proficiency. This lead to jamming outside of practice as well as trading song ideas. Soon they began appearing as the opening act for the improv shows, playing covers of classic rock, Disney tunes and TV theme songs. The stage act was a simple guitar and bass operation with irreverent banter thrown in between. Meanwhile, they started recording their own material and supplementing the tracks with a lush electronic environment. Their improv roots can still be heard in the anything goes style of their arrangements (a cell phone, whistling, fireworks).

The Science Project facts:

Philip wants you to know that he plays bass on all the tracks, except for This and That.

The phone ringing at the end of I Try is actually Kolbyâs girlfriend calling, who the song is about.

Kolby tried banging a metal trash can on Chinese New Year, but it didnât make quite the sound he had hoped for.

312 is titled after Philipâs apartment number. It is also the approximate time of night when the song was written.

The most difficult bit of the album was recording the sitar on "Quarters". This was because Kolby was the only one around at the time and playing sitar and controlling the recording console proves difficult when done simultaneously.

Kolby sings the highest note on the album, an E.
