Tim Brown and Donna McKean are the two constants among a revolving lineup in the critically-acclaimed Bay-area, California, indiepop band Lunchbox. Forming in 1994, Lunchbox released a slew of singles and EPs, and a string of albums between 1996 and 2002 — their self-titled debut on San Francisco’s Not Happy label, “The Magic of Sound” and “Evolver” on Portland’s Magic Marker, and “Summer’s Over” on Stewart Anderson’s (Boyracer) 555 Recordings.
“Always a poppy and sonically diverse group […] Their strength is in their variety and versatility.” — Stephen Cramer/All Music Guide
“The first song on either side, ‘Satellite’ and ‘Fernruf’, are just as amazing as the last Lunchbox record. In fact I remember really loving ‘Fernruf’ when I heard them play it live last summer.” — Indiepages
“Nice layered poptones with a layered feel, ‘Satellite’ plays with a breezy 60s EZ-pop-with-a-pulse, segueing seamlessly into the more psychy, mostly instrumental ‘I Could Have Been Someone Else’. The fun continues on the flip with the similarly layered pop of ‘Fernruf’ and ‘Gravity’. — Shredding Radio
“This EP released in 2001 on the Magic Marker Records blew me away when I first heard it. Though slightly more loopy then most indiepop, there is the underlying melodies and pop mentality that make this EP so enjoyable.” — Barf Out Dolls blog
