Dolour may be the name songwriter Shane Tutmarc offers himself as well as the ever-changing music group of collaborators he surrounds himself with. Because of its continuously changing lineup, Dolour’s audio can be hugely variable. Nevertheless, with influences such as for example Brian Wilson, the Beatles, the Flaming Lip area, Paul Simon, and Green Floyd, the pop component is the a very important factor that remains a continuing in Shane Tutmarc’s music. Although early incarnations from the music group can be tracked back again to 1997, Dolour’s first public full-length album Looking forward to a World Battle, had not been released until Apr 2001 on Sonic Increase Recordings. Ending up in good testimonials, a short-term Dolour lineup would go on a limited Western Coastline tour. In 2002, Dolour came back with the amazingly tight sophomore work, Waiting for a global War.
