Janel Munoa / I Am The Polish Army / I Love You
Janel Munoa began her singing career as a little girl Howling through the dark Oak forests at the edge of her tribes Reservation in Southern California, just an hour South of Los Angeles. Growing up Luiseno Indian, her native Howls now spill over into the rock, soul, blues, and laces of hip hop that infuse her music. Janels debut album Howls From Deep in the Woods is wild and full of her unique perspective. Her dark timbered voice conjures up a live performance that is full of energy, quirk, and ceremony, drawing the audience into her world.
From the privacy of a dorm room in 2005 to the streets of Brooklyn in 2016, I Am The Polish Army has come a long way since singer-guitarist Emma DeCorsey first considered the strength of her voice and the purpose behind the music floating around in her head. Between those early days trying to understand what I Am The Polish Army could be and the recent months in which the band finished their forthcoming album, DeCorsey had her heart crushed by several fellow musicians, her home studio equipment was stolen, she scraped her original thoughts for her first full-length and subsequently rewrote the bulk of the material. She also befriended two musicians (bassist Turner Stough and drummer Eric Kuby) who would forever alter the trajectory of her life.
Alongside DeCorseys memorably nimble fretwork, Stough and Kuby provide the necessary and expansive foundation through which the bands cinematic visions unfurl around your ears. Often dense, but inescapably agile, these arrangements offer a hard rock tint that colors their respective contributions. Stough's basslines slither and thud, giving weight and dexterity to the music, while Kubys emphatic percussion delivers a much needed bit of stomping noise and propulsion to DeCorseys vocal calisthenics. Lingering only momentarily within each of their influences, the band slowly divulges the depths and details that comprise the complex and labyrinthine motivations behind the rolling mass of My Old Man.
Based in Brattleboro Vermont, I Love You! is an amalgam of melancholy and orphic drive with infectious melodies and haunting lyricism. I Love You! is made up of all queer members who strive to create a safe queer space for queer show-goers.
