The Grownup Noise

The Grownup Noise has evolved into a rousing and innovative pop-music outfit, bridging the gap between Americana and indie. Since releasing their self-titled debut in 2007, they have shared stages with performers from comedian Patton Oswalt to fellow avant-baroque musicians like Dresden Doll Amanda Palmer and acclaimed Canadian barnstormers Rock Plaza Central. The band is finally gearing up for its playful, poignant new LP, This Time with Feeling. Described by the Portland Press Herald (Maine) as a combination of "smart lyrics with keen vocals" with songs that are "doses of melodic sunshine.” The Grownup Noise has maintained and built its fan base during the intervening years through a savvy combination of eccentric pop songs, natural talent, and determination.

Miracles of Modern Science are an unlikely rock band. Using just mandolin, violin, cello, standup bass, and drums, they create explosive pop that upends notions of what these instruments can do. Dog Year, their debut LP, finds MOMS pushing the limits of their antique instruments and throwing aside conventions as readily as their genre-bending idols, Bowie and Bartok. You'll hear unhinged baritone vocals anchored by a looming upright bass, mandolin riffs that share more DNA with post-rock than bluegrass, and a two-man string section shredding as ferociously as the rock drummer behind them. The result is as daring as it is infectious.

Writing intensely personal music is nothing new for Montreal's Patrick Krief (of The Dears). Upon completing his recent release, Hundred Thousand Pieces, Krief had to step away from the project for nearly six months. The self-produced, self-mixed Hundred Thousand Pieces was his first concerted attempt to create music that was strongly evocative and inspired by his work scoring films.
