This event is all ages
Queen Moo is an American Rock & Roll band. The group presents vivid harmony refined through a rigorous and personal creative process. Their second full length, Mean Well, out 8/25 on Topshelf Records is a portrait of the group and the individuals.
When Queen Moo spoke with Noisey in 2015, Jason Rule and Kevin O'Donnell had just "quit emo to get drunk." In 2017, however, Rule has quit drinking, making a full reflection not just on sobriety and recovery but on growing up and putting the worst parts of oneself to bed.
Across the album, the group packs extreme musicianship: Drummer Nick Charlton provides an insane sense of rhythm, often playing well across the bars, diving into polyrhythms and absurdist beats without ever feeling out of place. O'Donnell's voice is the baritone to Rule's tenor. Oscar Godoy, for his part, splatters shredding melodies in bursts, occasionally dueling and harmonizing with Rule, a fine guitarist in his own right. The group’s arrangements are constantly evolving and changing, making no two live performances alike.
One of the few bands in the northeast that can lull you with ethereal soundscapes while simultaneously sending you into a a crazy mosh, Jelani Sei are a group of individuals who are constantly searching the realms of harmony to find that new groove.
Having roots in Evan Lawrence’s basement, Jelani Sei has evolved into a full lineup that includes Kayana Guity on vocals, Samuel Smith on guitar, Scott White on guitar and Enayi Tamakloe on drums. The completion of the lineup has allowed the band to reach a point of musical clarity they wouldn’t have been able to find on their own. From playing all around New England, into New York City and Philadelphia, they have developed their own sound, self dubbing it as “Progressive R&B.”
Jelani Sei recently released their second EP entitled, “Kaaria,” a four track encapsulation of their musical growth from their previous releases, as well as a conversation of the current state of the world. Jelani Sei represents not only unity, but love, passion and a drive to push oneself beyond limits they didn’t think they were capable of.
