Distance To Empty
Relaxcitement
Plastic Artifice Records
www.distancetoempty.com


The Sunflower State, otherwise known as Kansas, has brought us everything from corn, to tornadoes, to buffalo. Very rarely has a recognizable band called their roots Kansas. But this new group on the scene is proud to do so and even offer a little "Kansas techno" (in their live show, that is).

Distance To Empty, born and raised in the wheat fields, have just released their sophomore album Relaxcitement. This CD offers both a Progressive Rock beat and a good ole fashion taste of Rock. Get lost in the mind of a traveler in the songs "Road To Omaha" and "Tourist". You get a little bit of synth action in the song "Norman", which oddly enough tells the story of an android. Of course, you can't have a good album without a couple of songs primed and ready to go on the radio: "New Theory" and "George Washington". Top it all off with an excellent ballad/slow song "Dulcinea".

With this album you can Relax and you can get Excited... either way you'll enjoy what you hear. Go out and pick up a copy, or if your curiosity is perked, head over to one of the stops on their tour and get your first experience of "Kansas techno". Go ahead, I dare you!
