""Songs" Review"

I was recently contacted by a great little label called Kid Sister Everything to check out some of their releases, my favorite of which was the "Songs" EP by Indiana's Grown Ups, so I've obviously chosen to write about that one first. As far as I can tell this is the band's only release at the moment, containing four songs of absolutely superb emo/indie rock in 15 minutes – the likes of which I very rarely encounter anymore. I'm talking heartfelt singing with plenty of gang backup vocals and loads of winding riffs that layer different guitar parts together (including some nice acoustic runs), with super dry production values that leave the guitars very stripped down without much distortion at all – thus making for lots of jangly riffing that lets the rhythm section have plenty of breathing room. All of this makes for memorable, sincere songwriting that doesn't need to go the super catchy route to leave a mark, and I'm loving every minute of it. I can't wait to hear more from this band, so I hope I get the chance! -

Hailing from Michigan City, Indiana the members of Grown Ups (Ex-Lion of the North, Northern Lights, Spreadsheets) have been “kids in bands” for a hot minute now, touring extensively with their prior projects. Hoping to try something new, Grown Ups released their debut EP “Songs” in early 2009 which they toured heavily playing punk houses, DIY venues and art spaces across the Midwest and East Coast. The band has most recently signed to Big Scary Monster Recording Company (Kevin Devine, This Town Needs Guns, Anathallo, Meet Me In St. Louis and more), who will be releasing their upcoming album in February 2010 in both the U.S. and U.K. Recorded by Brian Southall (ex- Boys Night Out). The records first single will be released on November 16 via Myspace and iTunes (and currently on this sonic bids page) and features the guest vocals of Justin Pierre (Motion City Soundtrack). The band lists such varied influences as Pavement, Lucero, Lifetime, Blink-182, playing loudly, horizontal hang-outs, eating chips, and even recreational drug use.
