Lollapalooza Week on DoYouHearTheMusic.com continues with another rising act you should most definitely be listening to.
Two words: Milo Greene
Who? Not just one person as you may imagine (and some people really thought) but rather a five-piece band from Southern California
What? “a collection of voices that live and breathe simultaneously with the breadth of an omniscient, collective consciousness”
Why you should listen? You ever have that moment when you just need to chill out and disappear from the world? Tune into this when that happens
A reason you’ll be excited? Listen to the tracks “1957” and “Silent Way”
Why I’m excited: These guys are brilliant. How else do you explain them creating an alias, “Milo Greene,” while in college to serve as their booking agent/manager? Fast forward as they morphed into literally, Milo Greene. Musically, I love how these five individuals have found a way to craft a whole bunch of music styles under one roof through each of their own unique strengths. When listening to the self titled album I feel like I’m being taken on an adventure and I like it.
If you like: Of Monsters and Men, The Lumineers, Vacationer, The Apache Relay
Final thoughts: I really dig Marlana Sheetz’s voice, stunning. Check out their performance on Letterman earlier this summer. And at Lollapalooza, Milo Greene pulled an early time slot but for those of you going, this is a great way to start your Saturday. Bring a blanket and just chill out on the grass as you watch this rising band take you on your own adventure.
My recommendation, arrive early and stop at the Google Play stage to a couple songs from the Kopecky Family Band and then continue moving to the Playstation Stage for Milo Greene.
