Our 2006 European Tour with Room. Pictures and a narrative of sorts from our unbelievably hectic and dreamy (hallucinatory??) two weeks spent playing for the most lovely audiences in the most lovely locations together with friends and fellow musicans Room.
Morex Optimo vs. Robbie Williams in Bern, Switzerland. Yes, we had to go head-to-head with Robbie Williams when we played in Bern. The best of Bern showed up to our show, and I believe Mr. Williams is still smarting from when he walked up to his dad on the streets of Bern and his dad could only say "blööh" to him, since he had a popcicle stuck in his beard.
Frischer, intelligenter Powerpop aus New York. Powerpop? Well, we don't know about that, but a nice little piece of press about our show in St. Gallen, Switzerland. Evidently we play lively, tricky music. Well, duh, *life* is lively and tricky.
Morex Optimo 2.0!. We're honored, thrilled, flattered, hammered and borderline diarrheaic with excitement that we've got Negatone and Kapow!ist Jay Braun on bass and former Blue Spark, Overlordess and Anabolic Kerry Kennedy on guitar for our upcoming European tour!
New "3 Songs" CD out and ready for the world!. Three songs about death, love, and death. Ha ha, as if there were any difference! Recorded and produced by evil genius Jay Braun (Negatones, Kapow, Mooney Suzuki), this short collection of recent material is intense, harrowing, and joyful. Look for the mp3s here and on iTunes soon. A beautifully packaged CD will be available on CD Baby and Vermillion as well.
It's Official: Yuri Quits the Band. Yes, it's true. We continue to work on our new single, and will eventually be looking for new musicians to play with and get back out there on stage and on the road. Thank you for all your encouragement.
Get Morex Optimo on the air! Take a minute to look over the list of radio stations, and place a quick call to request your song from Beast of Reflection. Thanks!
"After all they seemed to have captured David Bowie in his splendid '70s glam to bottle him up, shake it about, and spit forth a hegemony that will exist within the intelligent music world. Excellent indie rock with all the spicy flavors of intelligent conversation." —Smother.net Editor's Pick
Thank you Luke Murphy for his fabulous art work which is on every square inch of our album, about 80% of this site and most importantly, all over our hearts.
