Things You Miss
- Artist: The Method And Result
- Format: CD
- Release Date:3/23/2004
With a distinctive mix of electronics and indie pop songwriting, The Method And Result employ a wide variety of instruments, found objects, and computers to produce their music. But the core of their sound comes from a more human element producing engaging melodies and lyrics inspired by personal connections. The focus on songwriting is clear on The Things You Miss. The married duo of Megan Wendell and Mason Wendell meld vocals, electric guitars, upright bass, and Rhodes piano with homemade sound recordings made by everything from office supplies, to saxophones, to the organic sounds produced by a Kentucky cave. PRESS 'This duo is as unexpected as they are grounded, building elusive atmospheres out of found sounds and unrecognizable synths even while they're catchy and, frankly, poetic. For a debut EP, The Things You Miss is unstoppable.' - Splendid 'The music is strong and sounds highly Chicago-influenced; often the riffs flow in angular David Grubs-like melodic rivulets through backdrops of well-constructed mood-inducing loops and samples.' -Village Voice 'The cool machine-made beats make you dance like a robot while [the] vocals keep everything hot and human.' - Philadelphia City Paper 'Megan Wendell's powerful and beautiful voice is the centerpiece, which brings out a singer/songwriter feel that captures your attention and keeps it. At the same time though, the music is anything but singer/songwriter for the most part... The Method and the Result's use of [electronics] is so subtle (yet very evident) that even the most anti-electronic person will get lost in this. The music has an ambient quality that just surrounds you in an amazing way but doesn't put you to sleep. It's easy to get lost in this EP.' - 1340mag.com 'The experience of The Method And Result is not unlike a female-fronted Postal Service, but with more attention to the electronica behind it; each track has it's own feel, and each feel is such a cross between indie-diva vocals and driven electro-pop. A beautiful record that leaves you breathless, and highly anticipating a hopefully upcoming full-length.' - Jaded Times.
