Milo Greene (early show)
Friday, October 5th 7:30PM
The four voices of Milo Greene weave and blend into one voice, creating songs that live and breathe simultaneously as many and as one, with the breadth of an omniscient, collective consciousness. These melodies invoke long drives down the California coast, and the feeling of leaving home. There is something meditative about it, as though it asks to be listened to alone and given one’s full attention. The lyrics are vague enough to be questioned, yet specific enough to conjure certain smells, tastes and feelings, the idea of an intimate moment and the implicit sadness present in all things simply beautiful. Guitar lines swell and recede as ocean waves would. A slight dissonance can be sensed underneath a seemingly passive exterior; a tension can be found in passing tones that invoke jazz harmony and the sense of waiting for something really big to happen, a sense of growing inevitably older while grasping at the threads of youth. It is the perspective of someone looking back on life or lost love, of standing on a mountaintop overlooking a vast landscape. There is the sense that everything becomes clearer at a distance, less emotionally tumultuous and perhaps more meaningful. When the songs reach their closing, the listener is like a dreamer waking from a dream that can only vaguely be remembered.
