Australian brothers Isaac and Thorry Koren dazzled a small crowd at the House of Blues, opening for hippie jam band favorites Rusted Root. They were unfortunate enough to have a show the night of a Sox game at Fenway, just across the street, but after a relatively small early crowd, The Kin was able to welcome in a larger and more energetic crowd halfway through their set. Those of us lucky enough to catch this band’s opening performance were appropriately wowed. Thorry’s vocals captured the attention of even the most reluctant of the hippie crowd’s ears.

With a couple of guys that look like Guess models as an opening band, I expected a lot of drooling girls and women, but found instead a mix of guys and girls tapping their feet—perhaps a testament to the genuine appeal of The Kin’s musical offerings. The brothers harmonize remarkably well, with Thorry picking up most of the powerful soul-grabbing notes and Isaac pounding out complementary notes on the keyboards.

We were also treated with a short interlude of didgeridoo beat-boxing. During this moment, I heard someone behind me say, “dude, you’re not an elephant, stop,” so I guess something so unfamiliar is an acquired taste for some non-Aussies. The mixing of tribal instruments from their hometown with modern rock was impressive, but I’m not sure the crowd had a chance to adjust to what was going on as this interlude was only a minute or two long. Doing an entire song with the inclusion of the didgeridoo might help…unless dude-you’re-not-an-elephant-girl were in the crowd, in which case, violence might ensue.

Other show highlights included a gorgeous seafaring tune called “Abraham” that the brothers wrote for their father’s wedding. “Together” was a familiar favorite for me and several other members in the crowd. The song has been featured on several TV shows in the past year or so, including CBS’s “Moonlight” (yep, I was still the only person who watched that show), MTV’s “The Hills” and “Real World,” and Lifetime’s “Army Wives.”

There are subtle hints of some of the more talented boy band ballads in several of The Kin’s songs, but don’t let it deter you from listening to their full album, as they shatter that same genre only moments after, drawing from the more classical jazz and folk genres. However, they do seem to be one of those bands with broad appeal that you could throw in the CD player (or…whatever…your iPod speaker hub…you damn kids with your high-fallutin’ technology) on a road trip with your friends, your parents, and even your grandparents—they have a pretty universal musical appeal. Listening to them probably won’t make you an uber-hipster, but you won’t lose your street cred, either. (You might, however, if you’re a music reviewer and you buy The Kin’s latest album from their merch table like a commoner, ahem).

If you’re on the East Coast, definitely catch these guys live and prepare to be caught up in some catchy pop glory. And Bostonians, I almost hate to write this in case it sells out and I can’t get a ticket, but The Kin will be back in town in October, so keep your eyes open.

Mew is:

Jonas Bjerre: vocals and guitar
Bo Madsen: guitar
Silas Utke Graae Jorgensen

Danish indie alternative rock sensation Mew played to a packed Paradise Rock Club last Saturday and had the whole place dancing. Despite some sound issues that seemed to swallow Bjerre’s vocals, Mew kept the concert alive and kicking. Helping to pull together the ethereal feel of their music was a projector screen depicting some otherworldly, trippy visuals. I was vaguely reminded of Nine Inch Nails shows by the escapism element of the show…you really felt like you were being transported to some mythical place, a not altogether wholesome place, but one with dark caves and valleys amidst the utopian landscape. Mew also brought to my mind the likes of Sigur Ros, New Order, and a mix of “The Neverending Story” and Guilllermo del Toro-style movie soundtracks. Adding to the feeling of concert astral projection was Bjerre’s unnerving, but captivating voice.

Color me surprised to find that Mew’s music translates over to the American audience. That’s not to put down their sound, by any means (in fact, I’d argue that American listeners need to be jangled out of their musical comfort zone as often as possible), but I feel that it likely startles some listeners that are used to the typical alternative music they hear on their radio stations. However, the venue was full of an interesting mix of both Americans and Danes. The latter group holding their home flag up like a pride banner and singing every single word along with Bjerre. Their energy, combined of course with Mew’s electric performance, fed the more reclusive crowd of concert-going Americans.

Mew is currently on tour with Nine Inch Nails and Jane’s Addiction in Europe alongside doing their own tour to promote their latest album: No More Stories/Are Told Today/I’m Sorry/They Washed Away//No More Stories/The World Is Grey/I’m Tired/Let’s Wash Away. I didn’t make that title up, I swear. Crazy album title aside, Mew can count me in as a new fan. I highly suggest that if you find Mew coming to your town this summer/fall that you get your butt in line for tickets on their musical voyage.

Playing a sold-out show at the House of Blues in Boston, Paolo Nutini successfully overcame the venue size and left the audience with the feeling of being in a small intimate show in a pub somewhere. Having listened to Nutini’s first album, 2006’s “These Streets” and his latest gem “Sunny Side Up” I will unabashedly describe myself as a fan.

Nutini’s latest album is considerably stronger in terms of experimentation, and takes the listener on a journey through the back roads of America. You’ll hear everything in there, influences from New Orleans, certainly, and the blues, a bit of ukulele and some homegrown bluegrass, wrapped up by some chill Sunday morning coffee music to warm your soul. I was curious as to how this would all translate on stage, especially in a venue like the House of Blues, which holds around 5,000 people.

I found myself happily surprised by the translation to a live performance. Nutini emerged onstage and sauntered over to the microphone and belted out a pleasing mix of tunes from both albums. Crowd favorites mostly seemed to be from his original album: “New Shoes,” “Jenny Don’t Be Hasty,” and his latest single “Candy.” “Jenny Don’t Be Hasty” was the perfect song to finish off the set, leaving the crowd infused with renewed energy as they left the club.

Nutini seemed unassuming and relaxed and spent most of the show with his eyes closed, as you’d expect from any good soul and blues singer. I couldn’t help but be reminded of greats like Otis Redding and Van Morrison. I would be surprised to find anyone who’s seen a live show from Nutini that wasn’t compelled to feel every note in their soul, since it seems to come from the depths of the singer’s own.  At only 22, I’m expecting many, many more great tunes from Paolo Nutini in the years to come.

Just a quick shout-out to show opener Erin McCarley. This was my first introduction to her music and I was wowed and immediately wrote down her name. She’s certainly worth checking out!

The Dear Hunter at The Middle East on July 11th

Boston-based band The Dear Hunter played a sold out show last Saturday at the Middle East. The Dear Hunter strikes me as a mix between emo, goth, and classical. They manage to infuse modern rock with elements of both gothic sounds and emo lyrics, without fitting into either genre comfortably.

Casey Crescenzo has a powerful emotive voice, but does not rely on that whiny tinge or yelling singing style of many other bands on the scene. He has a classically trained voice, but manages to employ enough variations within each song to keep the listeners’ interest. The Dear Hunter takes advantage of many different sounds for their new album Act III: Life and Death, including a few romps that sound like they’re rooted in a circus scene from a Tim Burton movie. Backing Crescenzo’s impressive vocals, the rest of The Dear Hunter band members deliver a sound somewhat reminiscent of Queen, creating a dynamic, organic sound, especially in a live environment.

The crowd was comprised of an interesting mix of hipster kids (who seem to get their life blood from venues like The Middle East) and kids that looked like they just stepped out of a van on its way back from a folk festival. Generally local bands get the unenthusiastic, but loyal, reception of their old college buddies and a few people that show up early to the headliners’ show, but The Dear Hunter turned out every kid in the city with an ear for solid music that doesn’t sound like everything else on the radio right now.

Even more interesting than their live set, I discovered that their new album marks the halfway point on a musical journey based on a fictional character from World War I era. It sounds as though fans can anticipate a 6-album span with this character, and Act III: Life and Death is only a signpost on a long adventure.

Suffice it to say that if The Dear Hunter is coming to a town near you, cancel any plans you already had and get your butt in line to see the show! These guys are sure to impress.

On a busy Tuesday night in Fenway, the Red Sox played their opening day game. Right across the street at the House of Blues was where all the real fun lived. Sunbears! opened up for Mates of State and Black Kids, creating an open atmosphere of cheery joy. Seriously, their name includes exciting punctuation, they have to be cheerful! These Jacksonville rockers have a fun sound that’s somewhere between indie pop and moody electro-atmospheric rock. Incidentally, sunbears also are a species of bear found in the tropical rainforests of Southern Asia. Rainforests=fun. Asia most likely also=fun. Therefore: Sunbears!=FUN. Case in point, about midway through their set, they maneuvered a giant transparent balloon out into the crowd as we all stared at the orb and the bright lights, transported to a happy non-Tuesday-I-have-to-work-tomorrow kind of mood. For your first listen, I’d suggest listening to “Little Baby Pines” to get an idea of what kind of music they create. Crowd participation is always encouraged and these guys did a great job to prep the crowd for Mates of State.

I’m going to begin the Mates of State section of the review simply by saying that I’m going to try to write this not as a fan-girl, but as a neutral observer. But it’s going to be difficult, if not impossible. This husband-wife group from Kansas (or Connecticut or California, I can’t get a clear read on this one) has been spreading the happy bug to people since around 1999. I’ve listened to them over the years and always found myself bobbing my head inadvertently and grinning like an idiot. It’s just optimistic indie pop in its purest form. In a live setting, the passion they have for their music is unmistakable and magnetic. I actually saw communal handholding and swaying as if this were Woodstock and it was before everyone was at orgy-level. The other perk of seeing them live is that they’re just fun as hell to watch. Kori Gardner held the piano and organ entirely under her powerful dominion; she also looks a bit like Veronica Mars, which can never be a negative thing. Jason Hammel seemed to somehow have control over my feet as I tapped out every one of his drum beats with my own tired feet. They also had two guest musicians on tour with them, one on violin and percussion and the other on cello, both joining in for backup vocals. Mates of State has become my official “snap out of it” music for a bad day; it’s like the lazy man’s yoga, all you have to do is listen, no stretching required.

The finale was Black Kids, a band from Jacksonville that plays a more dance-friendly indie pop than Mates of State. Having the two groups together was a bit confusing for me, honestly, because Mates of State is who you’d listen to with a smallish group of buddies while drinking beer or wine and Black Kids is what you listen to while getting ready to go out, before strapping on some stilettos, to drink martinis and the occasional tequila shot. They were competing forces for me. Black Kids is definitely fun and would be great at a party or at a loud, trendy bar. And I’m not going to say I did this or anything, but they’re also ideal for sweeping and mopping floors when you really don’t want to clean but your place is a sty. They have a great mix of sounds, guitar, keyboards, killer vocals, synth-electro sounds, catchy drums, and lusty bass. They sound a bit 80s—The Cure mixed with Duran Duran mixed with New Order with a Blondie garnish. These kids are definitely worth a listen.

Catch the tour if you can and the show isn’t already sold out because I guarantee that you’ll leave happy and lighter than when you arrived.

How did you all come together to form “Volunteers”?

Volunteers have been around in different formations for at least four years, but this seems to be the definitive line up. The group has always had singer/producer Dan Goddard and is currently backed up by John Cave guitar/keys/backing vox, Dave Smith bass/backing vox, and Joe Spinnela drums/backing vox. John joined about two years ago and has been friends with Dave since 2000 when they met at college (conservatory of music at Cincinnati) and Dave volunteered for the job starting last October. Joe was the original drummer but left for several years only to return in late 2008.

Is there any special reason you chose your band name?

We are all Volunteers in some way (not slaves), and it works well with the NYC scene which has a rotating cast of sick musicians. Plus c’mon the name rolls well off the tongue.

What are the highlights and challenges of being a rock band in Brooklyn?

They are kind of one in the same in that there are tons of amazing bands based in Brooklyn/NYC so to stand out you really have to be fantastic. That being said there are so many other great people to work with so it keeps the creative fire burning.
Another minus to being here is that on any given day there are a million great shows to check out so people tend to be a little jadded when they come out… People in Allentown PA go crazy when they hear a great band, and here everyone acts too cool to have a good time.
Honestly though having lived around the country there is no where else we would rather be to do what we are doing.

Volunteers – Spectrophilia

What’s the best venue and band you’ve played with so far in your career?

As stated earlier this line up is fairly new, but our favorite venues thus far have to be Highline Ballroom and Mercury Lounge in NYC and Middle East in Boston… Very cool venues and if you aren’t familiar you should def should be. We are also looking forward to SXSW this week, Cannabis Cup in November, and at least 6 weeks of touring we are setting up over the summer.

What are your songwriting inspirations?

Life.

What is your favorite song to play live and what gets the crowd most amped up?

There are so many… We enjoy playing all of our songs or we wouldn’t play them anymore. Our fans seem to like “FckmyGhst”, “Rock and Roll Will Kill You”, and “HoogaBooga”… but who knows.

You’re playing SXSW this year; what are you most excited about? And which bands are you psyched to meet?

We are mostly stoked to get out of the cold Northeast and visit some old friends down in Texas. We are looking forward to seeing so many great performances it would be unfair to name only a couple, but for sure all the bands that we are sharing showcases with, and some of the bands that we are personally friends with.

Let’s say you could ask anyone in the world to come to contribute on your next album (and they were to give an enthusiastic “yes!” response), who would you choose?

We have been bouncing the idea of getting Alex Lifeson (Rush) to appear on a track or two on our next album which we are formulating now. Although our music is simple the band is composed of damn solid musicians so hopefully he would get the irony of him appearing on a cut or two… In fact on occasion we pull out “Tom Sawyer” as an encore for our fans just to melt brains.

Anything else you want to add for TWRY readers?

Feel free to reach out to us directly on Facebook, Myspace, etc as we are always looking to meet more cool people, and keep reading TWRY!

How did the two of you meet and come together to form “Under”?

Jen: We met through a mutual friend and hit it off immediately. From the first note…
How would you describe your music?

Jen: It’s very moody and mellow. Like a cloudy day, but in a good way – I hope.
Eamonn: Someone described it as pop noir – which I like.

Your song “Under” was featured on an episode of “Ugly Betty,” as well as the CBS show “Moonlight” (which has since been cancelled since I was the only viewer!) How did that come about?

Jen: We had the pleasure of working with Morgan Page, who did a fantastic remix of ‘Under’. It was through him and his amazing manager that we were able to get these spots on TV.
Eamonn: We’re both fascinated with the combination of music and visuals and we’d like to really explore that in the future. Plus it really gets people interested in your music that wouldn’t normally hear it. It’s surreally cool to hear your song being played as the heroine stares into the mirror, torn between her vampire lover and her non-vampire fiancé.

How does your writing process normally work?

Jen: There is nothing contrived about it. It just sort of ‘happens’. Usually Eamonn and I email tracks back and forth late at night and add to the other’s idea. Luckily we are blinded by love for each other’s songs so this works.
Eamonn: We both have little recording set ups at home. Most of the work happens late at night. Sometimes Jen comes up with a complete song, sometimes I help finish something, sometimes she takes something I’ve come up with and works her magic with it.

image

You’re currently working on your first album “More Pleasant Grey.” Any idea when that will be released?

Jen: It will be released this spring.

What can people expect from the new album? Any guest musicians helping out?

Jen: I am hoping each person has their own experience and interpretation of the record. I don’t want to put ideas in their heads. In a way the record is an expression of the past few years of my life/our lives, but I would love it to become the listener’s own expressions instead. Because of this I’ll say, don’t expect anything – just go from your first listen.
Eamonn: I think it’s an honest representation of who we are. We tried to stretch, keep things new and explorative. We had some great people help us out including Milosh and cellist Joan Jeanrenaud.

Any hope for your fans that you’ll go on tour in the near future?

Eamonn: Yes. We are going to start out with some west coast dates first and hopefully expand on that.

Speaking of touring, who would be your dream band to go on tour with?

Jen: Since we are dreaming, I suppose Radiohead for the genius, Kruder and Dorfmeister or De La Soul, for the kick-ass time we’d have, or maybe Nusrat Fateh Ali Kahn because I can’t imagine what that would be like (if he weren’t dead).
Eamonn: Air.

The music scene in San Francisco seems ideal for your sound. I’m thinking of bands like “Devics” who are successful there due to their ethereal sound. Do you think San Francisco appreciates what they have and that “Under” will be well received elsewhere?

Jen: Thank you! I hope we are well received here. As far as appreciating what they have, I’m not sure how to answer that. Mostly I think they do, otherwise they wouldn’t try and park for 45 minutes each night after work. It must be worth it! I think we could work in any city actually – providing it’s the right venue. I think there is a time and place for our sound – perhaps after a night out, or while enjoying a smoke on your stoop in the rain, these are the more obvious choices. But in reality, I think anywhere where alcohol is served will do.
Eamonn: We kinda just do our own thing and hope people like it.

What are you currently listening to that you can’t get enough of?

Jen: The Pakistani house music on Pandora. For real.
Eamonn: De La Soul – The Grind Date.

Is there anything you’d like “They Will Rock You” readers to know?

Jen: We aren’t as serious as our music makes us out to be. We are actually sarcastic bastards.
Eamonn: That we are not really going to rock you. Unless it’s rock you to sleep.

Playing a sold out show at the Paradise on Saturday, The Toadies rocked hard. Hard enough to require club security to stand in the crowd and break up moshers; moshers who were tucked in right next to a fan (front and center before the stage) who kept waving a fake leg up in the air. Curious. I never did find out what that was about and The Toades seemed equally perplexed/amused. I’ve seen quite a few shows in the city over the past couple of years, but I’m entirely confident in proclaiming that The Toadies had the best crowd yet. Nearly every person in the club knew the lyrics; and not just the lyrics to, say, “Possum Kingdom”—wonder hit of the 90s (you know the one: “I’m not gonna lie/I’ll not be a gentleman/behind the boathouse/I’ll show you my dark secret”). These people knew the words to every song the band played. The energy in the club was much more what I’d expect from an arena rock show than an intimate club in the city.

The Toadies’ clean harmonies and sharp guitar and drum riffs carried the show along flawlessly. The set list included a pleasing mix of old favorites and songs from their new album “No Deliverance.” From the latter, the song “Song I Hate” (ironically, one of my favorites) sounds much like a throwback to the music played on alternative stations in the mid-to-late nineties. I mean that as a compliment, as that’s my kind of flannel-wearing 90s rock. The Toadies had a harder edge than I anticipated, which translated perfectly into their energetic live performance. Every few songs, they would play opening notes to various classic rock hits from AC/DC and Led Zepplin among others. The crowd feasted on these, cheering and laughing along with the band. These “classic rock breaks” kept the energy up, unexpectedly, instead of shattering the mood. Overall, I highly recommend checking The Toadies out on tour. Get a big group of loud friends, wear some sneakers you don’t mind getting sticky and coated in other peoples’ beer, sneak in a flask of booze if you must, and get your butt to the concert!

I left the show happy, buzzed, and ears ringing—just as it should be.

What sounds better than a concert on a ship in the Boston Harbor? An Electric Six concert on a ship in the Boston Harbor during a crazy thunderstorm.

Electric Six is a Detroit-based band that mixes genres like hicks mix relatives. I was nearly certain that I could categorize them as a new spin on glam rock, then I second-guessed myself and called them disco, then kind of dance-punk. Clearly, my attempts to nail down the Electric Six sound failed miserably. I can say with confidence that they’re a riot and provide an alluring change from the indie rock norm.

I can’t say they were fun to see as I couldn’t stay in my spot in the front of the stage for long for fear of being drowned in the waterfalls of beer being sloshed on me. And if you’re not up against the “stage” on this boat, you’re not going to see a thing. If you wanted to just party with your friends on a boat and hear great music, it would be perfect—however, if you want to actually see the band perform, you’ll be out of luck unless you’re a large, intimidating guy with a lot of beer in him. Also, a moral to this tale: if you are on a boat, and you’re drinking, and there are significant waves, do not overcompensate by leaning into the motion of the waves as you will fall over and spill your expensive beer and you will be sad.

I recommend that you check out some of the Electric Six videos as they’re strange, hilarious, and wildly entertaining. You’ve likely heard the song “Gay Bar” before and its video won’t disappoint. From what I can tell, the guys gave a fabulous performance, they sounded great at least, and are definitely worth checking out as they continue their tour.

I might also add that opening for Electric Six was the “heavy metal Bee Gees cover band” Tragedy. I freely admit that I am a Bee Gees fan and these guys are as crazy as their description implies–it was fun to see people head bang to “Night Fever”…crazy.

The stage is empty and the crowd is restlessly waiting for entertainment, leaning against the bar, the wisest snatching a prime spot right in front of the stage and holding it with the enthusiasm of a kid in line to see Mickey Mouse. I figure it’s the perfect time to use the restroom. I return to the club and feel like I walked into the wrong theater at the movies. Surely there couldn’t be this much energy and insanity only five minutes into the show.

I can confidently say that The Subways know how to work a crowd. They’re those kids you wanted to party with in college, but you knew you’d be paying for it later, possibly while sitting in a jail cell. The Subways hail from England and bring a retro punk sound across the pond. I went to the club knowing only their song “Rock and Roll Queen,” which I’m not entirely sure where I heard for the first time. Apparently it was on an episode of “The O.C.” (thanks, Wikipedia. Which, can’t be the source as I never watched it) and they performed it on Letterman (which is a more likely candidate, but only slightly so). Regardless of where I heard it, I knew it well enough to sing along and fake fan-girl-dom. And, man, were there fans.

The crowd was ridiculous. There was manic jumping, beer sloshing, and general rock mayhem. The Subways seemed to eat it up, feed off of it, and spit it back out at us—prompting Billy Lunn, the lead singer, to jump off stage into the crowd and nearly cause the girl in front of me into having some sort of heart attack. Overall, the crowd was relatively small, but incredibly enthusiastic and loyal. Most knew all of the words and screamed along with Billy and bass/singer/adorable girl, Charlotte Cooper. I was clearly in the minority by only knowing “Rock and Roll Queen.” I highly suggest all of you check them out and familiarize yourself because you’ll be wanting to see them when they come to your town—trust me. Just take a nap and a multivitamin first; you’ll need the energy.
