Yes, it’s true, I haven’t posted anything for a month. It’s been a series of adventures and misadventures, but this morning I find myself getting a badly needed dose of beautiful musical medicine to sooth my weary soul. It’s the new baby album from proud parents The Grownup Noise, who have been featured and appreciated in this blog on several occasions, if feeble memory serves.
The Problem With Living In The Moment is a stunning album, with the swirling gypsy strings, rolling percussion, crazy accordion and banjo and god-knows-what-else cacophony twirling madly around sharply perceptive, thoughtful and mature lyrics that I’ve come to now expect from this fine, fine band. This is definitely feel-good music for grownups with a touch of wistfulness that one needs to tack a few years on to truly appreciate… But don’t get me wrong, there’s plenty of rollicking good wholesome dancy jams to kick up your heels to.
Listen to a few of the songs from the new album below, and if you’re in the area, head on out to their party tonight – admission to the (dirt cheap) show includes the new album! You won’t find a better deal than that.
