Amidst an atmosphere of melancholia, Peter Michel has thrown himself into a lifetime’s worth of writing, recording and touring belied by his young age. At just 17, the Seattle-based musician toured extensively with dream pop outfit Craft Spells, and most recently met critical acclaim with his personal project, Hibou. In ‘Halve', Hibou's third full length album, Michel creates a characteristically ethereal record addressing the dichotomies between childhood and adulthood, self and society, authenticity and superficiality. The outcome is a work filled with swooning, hazy reflections on loss, love, nostalgia, and joy from a 10,000 foot view. Michel's vocals comfortably twist from echoing whispers to punkish accusations; his guitar from dizzying surf hooks to lush 80s-inspired chords. Control—and the lack of it—reverberates throughout the album, and the consequence is a set of ten deeply vulnerable songs that will find you romanticizing your own childhood, your own teenage years, your own morning.
The Penniless Wild
The Penniless Wild is an American Alternative Folk Rock Band out of Hartford, Connecticut. The band originated as a duo consisting of Carson Millican (Lead vocals/songwriter) and Harrison Poltorak (Lead Guitar). The songs were heavily influenced from both American Folk and Alternative Rock. The Penniless Wild has since evolved into a full band featuring artists from the Hartford area.
Power pop from one fang to another.
