Biography

On! Air! Library! was a Post Rock/Ambient/Experimental rock band from New York City. Twin sisters Claudia Deheza and Alley Deheza met up with Phillip Wann to form the group back in 1998. Through playing at local venues and parties the trio eventually landed a deal with Arena Rock in 2002, and in 2003, a split record with The Album Leaf exposed the band to a wider audience, paving the way for their full length, self titled, debut album in 2004. In that same year they embarked on a nation-wide tour with Interpol and The Secret Machines. However, in 2005, On! Air! Library! disbanded. Claudia Deheza & Phillip Wann then worked together in Daylight’s for the Birds, but Claudia has since left that band. Alley Deheza went on to form School of Seven Bells with former Secret Machines guitarist Benjamin Curtis, and her sister Claudia has since also joined the group. Claudia has also worked with Scott Herren (Prefuse 73 and Savath & Savalas) on a project called A Cloud Mireya.

    I've given it several listens. I wasn't implying that music without beats is generic (most of the music i listen to is beatless), and i certainly wasn't implying that pop music is bad music. I just don't like the direction they went. It's a very easy choice to drown your album in guitar reverb as it makes the music more fluctuating and harder to get a solid grip on. It's also a very popular choice these days as there is tons of bands doing the pop-shoegaze thingy. Some times it works well, sometimes it doesn't. I didn't really work on 'Alpinisims' IMO. I prefer the more raw feeling that the O!A!L! album has.

    this stuff is much better than School Of Seven Bells. SOSB is just another generic reverb drenched pop group. O!A!L! had style.

    School of Seven Bells is pretty awesome stuff, but it doesn't really sound anything like OAL...

    "Bread" has one of the catchiest, most beautifully poppy melodies I have ever heard in my life. Damn, I loved this band.

    Yeah, they sure did. You can almost touch the atmosphere they created.

    I was very excited about the potential of this band, it's a shame they split. At least they left behind some very good stuff.
