Milo Greene is a booking agent who represents a band from Los Angeles, California. He’s also not a real person, and after using him to help set up shows for some time, the americana-indie group decided to adopt his name as their own. Recording in Seattle, the band released their self-titled debut earlier this year and were quickly lauded for their indie-folk revivalist style. Joining us live at MFNW in the Doug Fir Lounge in anticipation of tonight’s show at Mississippi Studios, Milo Greene treated audience goers to a beautiful set of soft sounds that sounded perfect in the afternoon heat.
With almost every band member sharing vocal duties and switching instruments multiple times at one point or another during the set, the most impressive thing about Milo Greene’s live performance was the group’s ability to synthesize so many different ideas and instruments into a single cohesive sound.
Although there were plenty of soft drumbeats, full-band “oohs” and other chants, and at least one song addressed to “my dear,” Milo Greene’s delightful sounds were much more pleasant and complex than your average folk-rock revivalist band, blending intricate harmonies with soft and simple sounds full of atmospheric swells.
