Description

Transistor! on CD

Basement Apartment is the solo project of former Pilot Light guitarist Vince Caro.  Conceived in 2001, BA originally started out as a school assignment incorporating sound with visuals.  Playing most of the instruments with guitar help from Kristina Kerr (ex-Pilot Light, Pine Marten Group) and friends, Caro successfully released 'Interstellar EP' in 2002 on indie label Susstones to warm reviews.  Subsequent to it's release was the band's first video for 'Learning to Fall' (officially selected for the Sound Unseen Film Festival in 2003). To translate the EP live, a slew of Minneapolis' Finest rounded out the lineup for most of 2002-03; including Janey Winterbauer of Astronaut Wife on vox and keys, Ashley Prenzlow of The Moodswings on bass and Marc Iwanin of Medication on drums and vocals. In late 2003 to early 2004, Basement Apartment compiled 13 new tracks for a more realized full-length, 'Transistor!'  Inspired by the AM pop of his youth, Caro continued with the lo-fi DIY attitude that has worked so well in the past.  Recorded at various homes in Minneapolis, the album recruited even more collaborators this time around.  Former Pilot Lighters C.A. Grooms, Steve Finch and Joey Donahue contribute on production and backbeat respectively.  Tim Ritter of Astronaut Wife (bass), Moon Wells of My Liquid Head (bass), Jesse Peterson of Medication (guitar) and the Original Mark Edwards on vox sweeten up the mix. Basement Apartment's new lineup is Vince Caro (vocals, guitar), Kristina Kerr (vocals, guitar), Janey Winterbauer (vocals, keys), Moon Wells (bass) and Andy Iwanin (vocals, drums).
