Don't Miss Joe Deninzon and Stratospheerius Tonite -
DATE: Wednesday April 9th 2008
SHOWTIME: 11PM EST.
Lead by electric violinist/vocalist/mandolinist Joe Deninzon,
Stratospheerius unleash their fourth collection of songs. Hot on the
heals of their acclaimed CD, "Live Wires", "Headspace" brings
energy into the studio. Vocal rock anthems like "New Material, "Old
Ghosts", and "Today is Tomorrow", shout alongside ripping
instrumentals. From the bluegrass punk of "Gutterpunk Blues", to the
coaster ride of "Mental Floss", and the bigger and louder sequel to the
Heavy Metal Hora "Heavy Shtettle II". The disc also features a unique
cover of The Police "Driven to Tears". This CD is filled with
hooks alongside the death-defying instrumental jams the group has built
its reputation on. Influences range from Mahavishnu, Zappa and
Zeppelin, to Dave Matthews, Radiohead, Jeff Beck, and Bela Fleck.
"Fleshing out the Stratospheerius sound are: Out-of-this-world strings,
sultry guitar, rumbling basslines, frantic drumming, and
celebratoryvocals that enunciate lyrical outlines of life. The songs
are gripping and energetic. Insistent melodies are made
compelling by the violin passion. Fevered solos are cradled
lyrical passages that tremble with breakout rock stamina. A Bayou
flavor lurks in several tracks, creating a strange fusion of bluesy
funk and progressive tendencies. The result is goodtime music that will
