Music Monday: Milo Greene

This past Saturday, I went to see Milo Greene at Brighton Music Hall in Allston, MA. The concert was very fun and Milo Greene killed it. Milo Greene is an indie/folk band from Los Angeles consisting of four lead singers, Robbie Arnett, Graham Fink, Andrew Heringer, and Marlana Sheetz, who also sing back-up and switch off playing various instruments (guitar, keyboard, etc.). While Curtis Marrero keeps the band together with his powerful percussion beats.

[Sorry you can't see Curtis in the pictures, but believe me, you could hear him and he was awesome.]

I was first introduced to Milo Greene when they opened for The Civil Wars. Their talent blew me away and I bought their EP album right after the show. Then, I saw them at the Middle East in Cambridge with Family of the Year, and although there were some technical difficulties the band wasn't thrilled about, they still played a great show. This past Milo Greene show was by far the best, though. The audience was really into it and their energy was high, plus no technical problems this time. 

Milo Greene's music is very soothing with beautiful-sounding three and four part harmonies. It's amazing how the band can blend their voices so easily, yet when they sing individually, their voices are very distinct. The music also has strong drum beats in the background that juxtapose the smoothness of the vocals perfectly. Some of my favorite songs of theirs are "Silent Way," "Don't You Give Up on Me," and "Cutty Love." Definitely check them out. I highly suggest this band.
