The American Dollar picture
The American Dollar biography
Founded in Queens, New York, USA in 2005

A rather quiet & lesser-known duo of Richard Cupolo & John Emanuele hailing from New York City. The American Dollar are a reminiscent of such well-known Post-Rock acts as Sigur Ros, The Album Leaf, and Explosions In The Sky, but still manage to produce their own original & cinematic sound. The American Dollar's music can be seen as sections of atmospheric & ambient pieces and mixing it with huge orchestral rock but with a slight influence of Electronic music.

With two excellent albums (which were independently released) under their name so far, The American Dollar seem to be going places with plenty of experimentation and excellent musicianship. It wouldn't be surprising if their music was used in huge production films/tv specials. Infact, the bands music has already been used on an episode of MTV's The Real World. The American Dollar is an exquisite listen that will not disappoint the fellow Post-Rock fanatic and are slowly going on strong with nothing but good things to come. A truly pleasing hidden gem in the Experimental Post-Rock genre.

The American Dollar Post Rock/Math rock

Review by hogarth

5 stars The American Dollar is an American ambient post-rock music project, formed in 2005 by John Emanuele and Richard Cupolo. They´re music (by they´re own words) are "In order to create a set of contemplative reflections on the world they live in ways that could reflect positive, neutral or negative forms, depending on the point of view and state of mind of each listener".

Its musical structure is based in electronic sounds. Maybe may have some similarity with God Is an Astronaut and Caspian, and some other post-rock influences.

I found out myself enjoying they´re music very much, and Atlas is for me an escape to calm my mind and soul, from reality that surround us.

Due to the band´s short time in the active, they have already a respected discography.

The American Dollar (2006); The Technicolour Sleep (2007); A Memory Stream (2008); Ambient One (2009); From The Inland Sea (2009); Atlas (2010); Ambient Two (2010); The Best of ... (2010).
