Threads – the second full-length release from Minneapolis based Now, Now – explores the fragile and often transitory nature of our existence, our perceived understanding of the world around us and relationships shared with others physically and emotionally. Produced by Howard Redekopp (Tegan and Sara, An Horse, New Pornographers), Threads forms a sprawling sonic endeavor that showcases the bands incredible growth as songwriters and musicians. Vulnerable vocals give way to oceans of sound retaining definition via deftly layered guitar parts augmented by lingering synths which alternate between background and center stage.
I just discovered these guys and boy, their recent album "Threads" is soo good. To be honest, it's your typical indie fare but it's still a very good and pretty relaxing music.
A little bit about "Now, Now"
The band was formed in 2003 by high school classmates, Cacie Dalager and Bradley Hale when they were members of their school's marching band. So yeah, it's pretty much your normal high school band that survived for 10-fucking-years!
Current band members: Bradley Hale, Cacie Dalager, and Jess Abbott
Anyway, give the album a listen! I think their songs will be great for road trips because they just have that 'highway' feel to it.
And yeah, the whole album has great songs so don't worry, it's not one of those 'albums with one good song and then you feel pretty ripped off for the rest afterwards' kind of deal. So what are you waiting for? It's only $10 anyways!
