LIKE MOVING INSECTS
Like Moving Insects pollinate their musical experience within an encompassing mixture of unique discipline. Its five members have traveled together in and out of various NY, NJ, and PA ensembles for over half a decade, growing into a family of friends inside and outside of their music. Offering an alternative to the multitudes of over-amplified bar bands, LMI tries to re-sensitize its listeners with the textures and timbres of horns & strings, bow & slide, wood & wire.
LESSER BIRDS OF PARADISE
Chicago's Lesser Birds of Paradise return with their third, possibly best effort to date. The lush, pastoral sounds of String of Bees is a rolling landscape of lap steels, musical saws, and ukuleles that creates a whimsical feeling; the perfect compliment to the somber vocal stylings of singer Mark Janka. The record, like the reluctant transition from winter to spring, comes off as hopeful, slow-moving, and bittersweet. Neither enitrely happy nor sad, the songs lollygag amongst a messy range of emotions. Records like this only come along a few times a year. Buy it, don't burn it. (Rockpile)
