I've Been Told The Tallest Building in Hell Has An Awesome View of the Emerald City...

Wednesday, July 15, 2009




Portland has produced yet another folk gem: Jared Mees & The Grown Children. It must be something about the rainy winters that gets everyone inside singing together, so when summer comes around they go on these awesome tours across the states, tambourines, banjos, and sing alongs in hand!

This band definitely has that messy sing-a-long spirit, while still maintaining complex layers in their songs. The song "Bees" hides hivelike detail under the simple folk beat, guitar strings buzzing and violin strings plucking out complements to to Jared Mees's folk-sincere vocals. "The Tallest Building in Hell" brings back that sing song garage band feeling. But not in that garage band way. More like a living room band.

Catch JM & the GC on their summer tour, ending at Holocene with Inside Voices in late July!
