Right on the heels of Roger Joseph Manning Jr.’s fantastic solo release comes yet another amazing Jellyfish related project from TV Eyes. This is the 80’s new wave influenced side-project of Jason Faulkner, Roger Manning and Brian Rietzell. TV Eyes have been around awhile, playing gigs in LA and releasing a 12” single, but this full-length CD has been a long time coming. Right now it’s only available in Japan with no plans for US or European release, but it’s worth the import price. I don’t see how any respectable Jellyfish, Manning or Faulkner fan could pass it up. Anyone into 80’s new wave and synth-pop will go wild over the quirky and cool keyboards and vocals. The hooks and melodies are exactly what you would expect from these 2 and it’s the perfect stop gap while we wait for a new solo project from Jason, or perhaps something more from Andy Sturmer?
