About this album

Bellingham based band Rooftops released their debut album “A Forest Of Polarity” (CP014), November 17th, 2009 on Clickpop Records. With Drew Fitchette, Mark Detrick, and Jonathan McIntyre on guitars and Wendelin Wohlgemuth on drums, Rooftops craft intricate, mathy pop rock with dense counterpoint and sparse vocals. However, the band’s tapped notes, and complex, cross accentuated rhythms are balanced by emotive melodies and moments of delicate beauty. If you need a comparison, imagine the complex power of Don Caballero or Battles, but with the emotional tug of Explosions In The Sky or Mono. AFP expands on the bands intricate math rock sound by adding layers of acoustic guitars, vocals, horns, strings and percussion.

“A Forest Of Polarity” has already received note worthy praise from regional and national media sources including rotation on Seattle’s KEXP radio station and write-ups in November’s What’s Up! Magazine and January’s Electronic Musician. The album is now available at Everyday Music and Sonic Boom Records locations (more local stores to come) as well as online retailers such as Itunes/Amazon and the Clickpop Records Online store. Seattle and Portland release show dates will be announced soon.
