The Milo Greene Lollapalooza page is here.
Milo Greene are cinematic indie-popsters from Los Angeles, comprised of Robbie Arnett, Andrew Heringer, Marlana Sheetz, Graham Fink and Curtis Marrero. Arnett, Heringer, and Sheetz met in college, where they created a fictional character known as Milo Greene, sending out emails in his name to promote their creative endeavors. After college, and various musical projects of their own, Arnett, Heringer, and Sheetz reunited at their very own song-writing retreat at a cabin in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, directly overlooking a lake, completely secluded from the background disturbances of big city life.
Here, removed from any day-to-day conveniences like television or the internet, they began writing and composing their music. As the songs came together, Fink and Marrero were enticed to join and the entity known as Milo Greene came to life. The four voices of Milo Greene’s members weave and blend into one voice, creating songs that live and breathe with the range of an omniscient, collective consciousness. Their music functions like that of a symphony, with each voice and instrument standing strong on its own but coming together to create something beautiful, transcendent, and ethereal.
“The music of the new L.A. quintet blends two-, three- and four-part harmonies, serpentine folk-pop melodies and agitated beats into songs that rejoice a little, ache a little and leave sepia-toned images in your head when they’re through,” said Buzzbands.la while NPR noted: “Milo Greene makes folk-tinged music with perfectly blended male-femaleharmonies, but they marry that sound with thunderous live drums and infectious sing along choruses.”
Milo Greene have toured with the likes of The Civil Wars, Grouplove, and The Belle Brigade; are signed to Chop-Shop/Atlantic Records; and are in the process of finishing the recording of their debut album which was recorded at Bear Creek Studios outside of Seattle. The as-yet-untitled debut, which the members of Milo Greene co-produced with Ryan Hadlock (Ra Ra Riot, Stephen Malkumus, The Gossip), will be released in the summer of 2012, coinciding with the launch of an extensive U.S. tour.
