Must See Show: River Giant w/Bellamaine, Cometteson March 21, 2013 @ 4:01 pm (Updated: 9:37 am - 3/22/13 )
The album starts out with the heart string tugging, country tinged 'Out Here, Outside' and then rolls right into 'Pink Flamingos', a song that either sounds like a track Spoon could've cut or a mid-seventies rock staple but I can't quite make up my mind. The song is damn good however you slice it. Not only has 'I Permute This Marriage' given my vocabulary a workout but the song makes me want to get married, question said marriage and then permute the darn thing. Throughout 'I Permute This Marriage', (one of my favorites on the record) Kyle sings with an emotion found only within recently broken hearts and the tears of babies.
River Giant's record is one that deserves attention. From beginning to end, it's a long and winding road decorated with broken feelings and hopeful longing, loaded with sexy harmonies and bad ass rock n' roll.
Listen to a chat I had with the guys here.
River Giant plays The Chop Suey Saturday, March 23rd.
