<strong>Milo Greene</strong> will make its national television debut tonight on â€œLate Show with David Letterman.â€ The Los Angeles-based quintet will perform â€œ<strong>1957</strong>,â€ the lead single from its self-titled debut album. Released by Chop Shop/Atlantic Records, the album, which the group co-produced with Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers), just entered Billboardâ€™s Heatseekers chart at No. 1.
The band is currently in the middle of their summer headline run, which includes stops at Lollapalooza and a sold out Mercury Lounge show in New York City tomorrow night. The band will perform this Sunday, July 29 at Divian Orange in <strong>Montreal</strong>, and Tuesday at the Horseshoe in <strong>Toronto</strong>. The band will also visit 102.1 The Edge on Tuesday for an acoustic performance of â€œ1957â€ at 7:30 PM.
<strong>Milo Greene</strong>â€™s fall headline tour goes on sale this Friday, July 27th and includes stops in <strong>Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver</strong>. Support dates with The Walkmen will be announced shortly. Fans who register for <strong>Milo Greene</strong>'s official e-mail list at <a href = 'http://www.milogreene.com'>www.milogreene.com</a> will have access to a ticket presale for the band's fall headline dates today at 12 PM local venue time, with early venue entry guaranteed.
After recording their full-length debut at Bear Creek Studio outside Seattle, WA, the members of Milo Greene turned their attention to writing and producing a short film to complement the album. Entitled â€œModdisonâ€ â€“ after an instrumental track on the record â€“ it was shot in rustic Shaver Lake, CA, where the band had recorded many of its early demos. Directed by Chad Huff, â€œ<strong>Moddison</strong>â€ is a series of individual music videos. While each stands on its own, when laced together in the proper sequence, the videos render a complete cinematic narrative. You can check out the trailer <a href = 'http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzrYazEyLWc'>HERE</a> and see the band discuss the making of â€œ<strong>Moddison</strong>â€ <a href = 'http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQQkiCjrj-E'>HERE</a>.
The videos are being premiered online â€“ although not necessarily in the order that they appear in the 30-minute film. <strong>Milo Greene</strong> will put all the pieces together with a Los Angeles screening of â€œ<strong>Moddison</strong>â€ in its entirety later this year. In the meantime, fans can check out the â€œ<strong>1957</strong>â€ clip <a href = 'http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8Mc8YRigmw'>HERE</a>.
â€œâ€˜1957â€™â€¦is at once driving and lilting, filled to the brim with jangly guitar and exquisite vocal harmonies,â€ observed the Los Angeles Times while Nylon hailed Milo Greene as the â€œfeel-good band of the summer.â€ â€œ<strong>Milo Greene</strong> cast a cinematic spin on the sound forged decades ago by Laurel Canyon deities Crosby, Stills and Nash and Fleetwood Mac,â€ noted Angeleno.
Associated Press praised the album as â€œa tapestry of richly reverbed guitar, inventive drum work and something sorely missing amid todayâ€™s morass of arrange-by-numbers rock music â€“ a beautifully delivered concept. That concept is to present their music absent of the disturbances of a frenetic society that closes in from all sides.â€
<strong>Milo Greene</strong> is: Robbie Arnett, Graham Fink, Andrew Heringer, Curtis Marrero and Marlana Sheetz.
