Points of Light album was recorded in Oakland, California in our home studio from spring of 2014-15. We painstakingly picked 10 songs for this album, out of a collection of 30 song ideas. Dennis Bestafka played on the guitars, Bill Mowery on the drums, and Tarabud was on vocals and the bass. Dennis, being an audio engineer, expertly tracked and mixed all songs on Pro Tools. All instruments were live tracked. Final mastering of album done by The SoundLAB. Album art design was created by Bill. Poem inside album panel, written by Tarabud.

The album title means a lot to us, and is focused on constellations in the stars as a form of connectedness to the universe. Like stars in these constellations, we are all individuals tied together by fate, love, struggle and loss to shape our stories, like shapes in the night sky. As our intentions and actions either pull or push us in one direction or the other, still we become who we reach to become, through our own will guided by stars, the ethereal, the spiritual.

Conceptual lyric themes running deep within this album include: destinies written in the stars, recognition of California Native Americans, lost romances & lifestyles, innocence lost, rebirth from lost love, overcoming and dealing with self-esteem, human potentials, human interconnectedness, nature and divinity.

Sentinel San Francisco, California

Sentinel is an Indie-Dream-Pop three piece, based in Northern California. The seeds of this sunny-seaside-dream-pop began between Tarabud (vocals/bass), Dennis Bestafka (guitars), & Billy Mowery (drums) in San Francisco. Strongly influenced by their mutual visions of 80's synth and 90's dream pop, the likes of Cocteau Twins/Smiths/U2/My Bloody Valentine/ Cure/ Flock Of Seagulls/Ocean Blue. ... more
