Old Abram Brown
“There’s a density to Old Abram Brown’s music that makes every song sound as if it’s bursting at the seams… Songs swell to momentous, tense climaxes on the backs of interlacing melodies that combine shades of blues, folk, indie, and alternative with a sandpaper edge.”
Daytrotter Session (2012):
Summer Home, the new EP from Boston-based indie rock group Old Abram Brown, mixes wistful lyricism with a bright and breezy sonic texture. Placing emphasis on sunny guitar melodies, bouncy bass lines, and bold percussion effects, this tight collection of tunes offers thoughtful nuance and depth of emotion in both production and songwriting while still maintaining the dark, melancholic edge of the band’s previous work.
In 2011, the band embarked on an innovative project in which live performances were filmed and subsequently premiered on various blogs over the course of 9 weeks. Participating blogs included Consequence of Sound, YVYNYL, The Wild Honey Pie and The Muse in Music. The series served as a digital multimedia experience of the band's live show and became known as the "Blog Tour".
Their live show conveys the energy, command, and fullness which is truly evident on their recordings.
