Cop Light Parade is the long overdue follow up to
High on Stress'' 2005 critically acclaimed debut
Moonlight Girls. The first album received excellent
notices and airplay in not only their hometown of
Minneapolis MN, but across the nation and from as
far away as the UK, the Netherlands, and Belgium.
Cop Light Parade is the culmination of three years of
weathering enough personnel changes, geographic
obstacles and wardrobe malfunctions to have killed
a less recalcitrant band. Following the sudden
departure of founding member Jon Tranberry, the
band welcomed Jim Soule, who took up the bass
guitar and played his first show a few days later
opening for Jackson Browne at a huge outdoor
festival. The band returned to the studio to begin
work on its second album only to be set back by
another unexpected loss. Guitarist/songwriter/raconteur
Ben Baker moved to China, having
already contributed heavily to the recording. Baker
continued to work on the project, utilizing new
school technology and old school frequent flier
miles, while Chad Wheeling, a curiously youthful yet
grizzled veteran guitarist, joined singer/songwriter
Nick Leet, drummer Mark Devaraj, and bassist Jim
Soule in finishing the record. Bringing things full
circle, Cop Light Parade was recorded with great
care by Jon Tranberry.
An advance single of the title track of Cop Light
Parade has been released worldwide and added to
dozens of radio stations (online, terrestrial and
satellite), once again drawing raves from outposts
of the blogosphere from San Francisco to Istanbul.
Reviewers have favorably compared the band''s
"almost https://www.tradebit.comntry" sound to REM, the Replacements,
Wilco, and Josh Rouse among others.
