Much can be said as to what one can experience listening to a good tune on the radio, stumbling into a cafe or venue, only to find a musician or band playing so sweetly, so melodically. This past weekend, we made a trip up to Indy to see an incredible performance by our wonderful friends in the band, Saint Aubin. It was a super high energy show that packed the venue and left people sweating and barreling out their warcries (well, the lyrics to the songs... but when a lot of people get really excited, it kind of sounds like that). Our friends sold out their local venue and played a stellar performance chartering the release of their new EP, "Moonlight Monster." At one of their shows you can always expect to ask yourself, "what is going on"? And this is by no means a bad thing in their case. What we mean is that, almost every other song, you can find each of the band members switching instruments. This keeps things very interesting and divulges a great deal of their talent in raw form. Another interesting factor is that they have two vocalists- two vocalists which layer raspy bluesy lines of melodic and harmonic liquid gold (spun with their voices). These guys bring a great deal of energy, humor and consistency to their set that makes for one smashing good experience!
So, what are you waiting for? Go download their album, "Moonlight Monster," or listen for free on Noisetrade... although, let's be honest they wouldn't mind making a couple bucks. ;) Also, another exciting sidenote, they made it on Noisetrade's New & Notable... Pretty cool stuff!
