"It couldn't be this galaxy is lifeless/I keep searching for a sign". Brent Knopf's leading lyric from "Spore", from Ramona Falls' new album Prophet is an interesting one when placed within the context of his music career. For reasons that sound akin to combing the universe for life, Knopf famously left his previous band Menomena; they just weren't having that much fun playing together anymore. After releasing his first Ramona Falls first album Intiuit as a side project, Knopf made the leap of faith, devoting his entire time to such personal pursuits. Taking in the band's performance at The Launch Pad this past spring, its easy see the joy fronting his own outfit brings Knopf. The songs too seem more at ease - there's something warmer, less jarring about the balmy synths and electronic skirmishes that fire over a Ramona Falls composition. Still, Knopf's songwriting is no less progressive than it was with Menomena. These are sophisticated musical journeys, taking hard turns and ending up in uncharted sonic territory. BUT! There's life there. Isn't that what Knopf was searching for all along?
