Science Partner

Rocky Mountain News
Larksmith Station Records

Although Tyler Despres originally formed Science Partner in 2008 as an outlet for his acoustic material outside of his work with Dualistics, the project has developed into a six-piece. Despres already had a knack for writing moving songs on his own, but on Science Partner's eleven-track full-length debut, Rocky Mountain News, he and the group are more in indie-rock mode, save for the gorgeous ballads "Little Sound," "Eagle Eyes," "Paradigm" and "Beautiful Bean (for Carl Sagan)." Those tracks also feature some of the album's many three-part harmonies with remarkable vocalists Jess DeNicola and Maria Kohler. The dance-y "Child Stars," which name-drops Miley Cyrus, is one of the catchiest tracks on the disc, with "Bee Is a Bee" coming in at a close second.
