The Topangas

The Topangas stand out from the pack due to their attention to detail. The band has found itself a niche somewhere between commercial and unpolished alt. country. Also in the mix are hints of “danseband” here and there, and one or two songs are very much in the pop-rock and 70s soft rock vein. Not only that but main man Renn Loren also draws inspiration from his birthplace of Hawaii and from dirty bluegrass, which blends together to create a dry and warm sound. ""Songs From…" is a particularly varied album. Although the common thread running through the album is never lost, Loren and co. give each song soul and power. The band devote time and energy to each and every hook, which gives them a certain dynamic and ultimately longevity. This is by no means a record that defies convention or pushes the boundaries, but The Topangas manage the legacy of their musical inheritance with reverence and soul. An intelligently solid record." – Petter Lønningen, Bergens Tidene 5/6 “As for the Topangas, well, if this stuff doesn’t get the Santa Ana winds blowing through your hair…nothing will. Great song writing, vocals and band. A rollicking blast of sun drenched tequila soaked Americana that combines Tex-Mex Zydeco, and rock ‘n’ roll in a way that is completely classic and fresh as tomorrow.” – Producer Richard Bennett (Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Marty Stuart, Mark Knopfler, the Mavericks, Texas Tornados)
