A Dead Man On My Back (CD)

1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL! Get an AUTOGRAPHED CD + a FREE Koozie for only $5! Limited time only!
Also includes an instant download of the album.

Out of print and unavailable for nearly three years, Austin indie rockers Quiet Company have gone back to their beginnings to re-release their 2006 debut album, “Shine Honesty.” But instead of merely shipping decade-old recordings to a pressing plant, lead singer/guitarist Taylor Muse and his bandmates have completely rerecorded and updated the album to reflect how Quiet Company has grown and changed musically as its stature has grown.

The record, to be released digitally and in select national retailers on April 9, was recorded at bass player Matt Parmenter’s Ice Cream Factory Studio and features two new tracks, “Gun Control Means Using Both Hands” and “And You Said It Was Pretty Here.”

With more time, musicians and resources at his disposal Muse was able to add depth to the album, like recording live strings instead of using synth versions, or fixing mixing and intro problems that were overlooked in the blur of mixing and mastering one of his first recorded pieces of music. The updated and revitalized version of “Shine Honesty” also gives the band full ownership of its early recordings after languishing under the control of Northern Records, which released “Shine Honesty.” With master recordings under its control, Quiet Company will be able to properly promote an overlooked portion of its catalog and make those songs available for their fans once again in an updated & much improved version of the album.

We Are All Where We Belong (Vinyl)

The band’s latest endeavor, "We Are All Where We Belong"—mixed by legendary engineer Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, U2, The Cure)—chronicles the many different emotions that a person goes through in a break up: sadness, resentment, self-doubt, but ultimately hope and the indescribable joy and freedom that comes from the realization of making the right decision.

"It is easily the most personal thing I've ever written," Muse said. "It is, essentially, a break up record, only the romance that's ending was between myself and religion."

Musically, the album maintains the band's richly arranged, consistently catchy pop hooks and encompassing vocal harmonies but explores new territory with full orchestral arrangements and new sonic textures. Lyrically, the album is a departure from the former "Songs For Staying In" but the juxtaposition of heavier lyrical content and their trademarked upbeat sound makes for an engaging, above-the-cut musical experience.

Purchase includes an instant digital download.

Songs for Staying In (CD)

"Quiet Company trades in earnest, effortless indie-pop, with a knack for subtle unpredictability that keeps things fresh over multiple listens. ...Over Songs for Staying In’s six songs, the band maintains a balance between consistency of sound and more mischievous propensities. The songs specialize in easy juxtapositions: alley-cat guitar and playful piano, fragile vocals and recklessly flogged percussion. All simple brushstrokes, applied with conspicuous attention to detail to already smartly arranged sonic canvases, neatly pulling each song further into itself. There’s a strong sense that The Quiet Company guys know who they are and enjoy what they’re doing. Guess confidence makes songs sexy, too."

Everyone You Love Will Be Happy Soon (CD)

After the critically acclaimed release of their first record, "Shine Honesty," Austin's Quiet Company took to the road for over 200 shows all across the U.S. The video for "Fashionabel," by Emmy Nominated Director Cameron McCasland, won several film festival awards and was added to rotation by MTV.ca. During that time songwriter Taylor Muse began recording demos that would later become "Everyone You Love Will Be Happy Soon."

Soon after the tour, the band sought and achieved release from their agreement with Northern Records and began making plans to release their new record by themselves. Now, almost three years in the making, they proudly present to you, "Everyone You Love Will Be Happy Soon." Lyrically, the record promises songs that will make you fall in love with life and then just as quickly challenge everything you know about it. With 15 songs equalling an hour of music, Quiet Company tells tales of love, death, and frustration with the world we're forced to live in. Though always uplifting, the songs range from the raucously energetic to the beautifully intimate and never go without melodies that are immediately haunting and infectious.
