Halley was a band from Austin, Texas, formed in 1998 and disbanded in 2005. This is their first (and final) album, released in 2002. Their music covers everything from noisy pop, with the opening song bombarding the listener with a barrage of trumpets and trombones, to drum machine based arrangements, heavy noisy rock, and a waltz, to the final moments of an 11 minute song ending the record complete with a choir, strings, horns and a harp to finish off the solid structure of sound. Really really good!
