What can we say about The Front Bottoms? We know we love them: a punk band that uses acoustic guitar, indie-rock dance grooves, Springsteen-y keyboard lines (this they might deny). It's hook-filled… it's anthemic… it's confessional. Maybe Joni Mitchell by way of Green Day? They must have heard some Replacements along the way, and it seems like what Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers did for the Boston suburbs these guys are doing for Bergen County, NJ. But they still leave us scratching our heads. Just what the hell have the Front Bottoms alchemized?

Working in the vein of bands like Sigur Ros, True Widow, and Mogwai, their sound is a full exploration of the quiet/loud dynamic, drifting languidly between ethereal atmospherics and shoegaze-influenced walls of sound. The band made its debut in 2006 with the In Comparison to me EP, followed in 2009 by the Death of Day EP, which was the first release to feature the full lineup of Tanner Merritt, Johnny Dang, Michael Martens, and Anton Dang. Tirelessly touring, O'Brother began to develop on the road, growing together as musicians as they shared stages with the likes of Manchester Orchestra and Cage the Elephant. The band members eventually settled back down to commit the new material they had been developing to tape, and in 2011 O'Brother released their first full-length, Garden Window, through Triple Crown. Since then they have released a few EP's and also their new album Disillusion was released in August of 2013.
