Recently, veen was kind enough to shout-out to me because he thought I would be interested in hearing #nickdrake. I was very appreciative, even thought I'm already a fan. It's cool to introduce others to the things you think they'd dig. So, in that same spirit, lets use this thread to introduce others to some music.
I'll start with a band from Michigan called The Great Lakes Myth Society. They are fronted by two brothers that I grew up with, Tim and Jamie Monger. It's fun to share the music of your friends, but even more so when it's actually music you would dig even if they weren't your friends.
Both brothers have distinctive voices and song writing styles. Here's a Tim Song called Across the Bridge
Here is his older brother Jamie with Summer Bonfire
Great Lakes Myth Society (GLMS) is a musical group from southeast Michigan in the United States. Members include brothers Tim Monger and James Christopher Monger, Fido Kennington, Greg McIntosh and Scott McClintock. They write and perform songs about Michigan, including "myths" from around the area, as well as more contemporary, non-regional work.
The group was formed from The Original Brothers and Sisters of Love, which had basically the same line up, with the addition of Liz Archinvole on violin. GLMS has a similar feel to TOBASOL, whose sound was folk/rock/pop-ish, but with a louder, more rock feel.
Their first record was released by Stop, Pop, and Roll in April 2005. They signed to Ann Arbor-based Quack!Media in 2007 and began recording their second record, Compass Rose Bouquet.
In early 2011, Chevrolet used excerpts from their songs "Midwest Main Street" and "Debutante" on its Detroit metropolitan area commercials.
