"Prominence is the second full length in as many years from Texas transplant John Pena. It was recorded/mixed in the same apartment (after a failed attempt to mix in a 'real' studio) as last year's Talent, over the first few months of 2013 - that's after shelving a full length's worth of songs for not being sonically or emotionally interesting enough. Using Primitive Radio Gods' 'Standing Outside a Broken Telephone Booth with Money in My Hand' as a sonic touch point John built a new album from the ground up utilizing chopped/sampled drum breaks and, for the first time, some non laptop based keyed instruments(piano, mellotron) along with H.B. main stays classical guitar and steel drums. Live member Christian Barsi and Daniel Schlett of Strange Weather Studio both contributed keys to a few songs but the outcome is still a very solo sounding project."
