There have been many live recordings, demos and collections put together, but Angus McKinney is now working on their first proper studio album, due out early 2009



Angus McKinney began in a home steeped in music. Joel and Alex grew up listening to gospel music and Christian Rock mainly, but in their drive to find more and more interesting sounds stretched out and found what they were looking for beginning with the fringes of the Christian Rock scene and into the indie rock scene. Jonah Magranga of Far and Onelinedrawing fame inspired them to share the music they felt with others. They view music to be a communal thing, not a performer/audience relationship, but a sharing, close experience to build community and support between individuals engaged in the struggle of life.

Originally named Pendulum, for their wild mood oscilations, Angus McKinney exists to entertain, comiserate, and then elevate their audience through their mix of songs. The brothers Kircher grew up in Chicago, but Joel moved to Central New York for love. Joel plays solo shows throughout the year, but two or three times a year, they pack as many shows into a week or two that they can, and share their high energy brand of indie folk rock with the Central New York region.

Angus McKinney is influenced by many musicians, but the comparisons most often heard are Pedro the Lion, Neutral Milk Hotel, Mountain Goats, Leonard Cohen, and Johnny Cash.
