Jim Santo's Demo Universe Listening to Temporary Basement is unavoidably bittersweet once you learn that vocalist/guitarist Kevan Carl Ulsaker died in July 1998. Victim of a drunken boater, he met his tragic end a scant two months after graduating high school and just two days after recording his vocals on the debut LP of the band he'd been with four years. Happily, his mates have produced a worthy testament. Temporary Basement is a bracing blast of beach-punk and indie-pop, played from the heart and sprinkled with super songs like 'Laguna Beach,' 'Someone Like You' and 'Rosemary's Baby.' Rough around the edges, to be sure, but fun trumps perfection every time. Kevan would be proud, I'm sure. Mike C. (Listen.com) If the sound of this band was a bottle, it would be teetering on the top of your head while you stood on one foot. The gritty guitars, lurching drums and bass push forward as the thick-voiced lyricist strains to hit the mark on this mid-tempo Power Pop rockers. The piano buried in the background adds a nice touch.
