A lot of genre crossing, mind bending, and soul satisfying music from three terrific bands tonight. BABY STATES, THE GROWNUP NOISE and CHOOSE TO FIND are all up to some musical mischief. You will love this.
Baby States is New Old Time. Baby States is Pre- Modern. Baby States is West African guitar riffs, Uncle Dave Macon, and Nirvana. Baby States is Benjamin Lazar Davis, Jeremy Gustin, and Alec Spiegelman.
Since releasing their self-titled debut in 2007, Boston's The Grownup Noise have evolved into a rousing and innovative pop-music outfit, bridging the gap between Americana music and Indie Rock. With a genuine respect for every style of music, this band and its songwriter, Paul Hansen, are song obsessed. And more than happy to garner quotes like this from The Onion A.V. Club: "The Grownup Noise's best asset, however is the songwriting, with lines of love and the changing seasons coming out as gently and colorful as the music itself". Or this from The Boston Globe: "One of Boston's most promising outfits...a sense of sincerity, wonder, and poetry beats at the heart of skewed folk-pop songs".
Formed in Boston in 2006, Choose to Find is an unconventional rock group in that they use a combination of acoustic piano and electric guitar as the primary melodic voices. Imagine an inventive singer-songwriter band that requires no vocalist. This configuration has helped Choose to Find carve their own spot somewhere in between the post-rock and jazz genres. But Choose to Find is a far cry from being a mellow group. Fans of Choose to Find thrive on the high energy emotional rollercoaster that their songs provide. About their unique sound, Sonic Frontiers wrote, Choose to Find puts on an aural spectacle unlike any other, and they go beyond the overdone post-rock trends, while Daily Vault wrote that Choose to Finds music takes the listener on a vastly entertaining safari into unexplored musical territory.
