Genuine Review 10 Volt Army By Gabe Straight

10 Volt Army

By Gabe Straight, Music Journalist for Boston Rock Radio



10 Volt Army’s Genuine is a excellent gem in the ambient bedroom-electronic genre. Hailing from Providence, RI all the work done on this album was by one Mike Emiliani, a piano and bass player. The album combines ambient electronic and prog rock riffs to make an effort truly unique. From the very first track, “The Space Between,” I was hooked.


The production is almost flawless, the synths and pads have a great warmness to them and they really fill out the sound. I also loved the arrangements on Genuine, how each track had a lot of layers to it; not to mention the wonderful amount of earworm riffs. Emiliani knows his way around a bass and keyboard, and it clearly shows (notably on tracks like the odd time, Tool-esque “Prism” and the percussion lead in the epic “Petals in the Breeze”). More often than not, I was very impressed with Genuine and what Emiliani has accomplished.


If there’s anything I think this guy can improve on, it’s his timing. I love the individual riffs and sounds off Genuine, but they can be a bit drawn out, not to mention “Pedals in the Breeze” could more than easily be split into two or even three songs.  Shortening the songs has the chance to leave the listener wanting more and reaching for the repeat button. Given the material on Genuine, I am very excited to see what this kid has in store for the future. He’s got the production value, musical prowess, and arrangement skills. 10 Volt Army is a… wait for it… Genuine-ly great act. *badum, tssssss*
