about

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 constellations, we are all individuals tied together by fate, love, struggle and loss that have shaped our stories. The music likewise full of stories connecting us, as our intentions and actions either pull or push us in one direction or the other, we each strive become who we imagine, guided by stars, the ethereal, the spiritual. The music is there to accompany our journeys.

Conceptual lyric themes running deep within this album include: destinies written in the stars, romantic loss, innocence lost, rebirth from lost love, self-esteem development, human potentials, human inter-connectedness, nature and divinity, and the awareness of those that came before us on this California land - the Native Americans.

Your Points of Light purchase includes 10 songs, album art photos, and band photos!

Sentinel Seattle, Washington

Sentinel is an Indie-Dream-Pop duo originally from CA now based in Seattle, WA. The seeds of this sunny-seaside-dream-pop began between Tarabud (vocals/bass) & Dennis Bestafka (guitars) on a four track recorder. 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
