Band of the Day (10.26.10) Now, Now (Now, Now Every Children)

Pleasant female voices over eerie synth/guitar noises make for great music. See Emily Haines, xx, Best Coast, etc. etc. etc. I even like when the guitar player, here it’s Brad Hale, decides to rip into some nice electronic riff. Now, Now formerly Now, Now Every Children (NNEC) is a trio of midwestern lads who have an affection for music a little bit more north of Minneapolis. When I first heard them, I would have placed them in Toronto with the Arts & Crafts label, maybe between Stars and The Dears. Cacie Dalager’s lead vocals enthrall me, she sounds like a meeker, more helpless version of Emily Haines. I want to see her live with an acoustic guitar, no effects at a tiny bar in Tennessee. I think she’d shine without the noise, which to me, makes a great singer. With three EPs, one LP and a whole host of tracks, the band has refined its sound since 2003. The new self-titled EP is nice, it may attempt to be too much, see the appropriately named track “Giants” to hear their attempt at expansiveness. I like them when they’re less expansive and they stick to the trio of sound. Have a listen and be sure to follow them, they will be big.

Band:
Cacie Dalager (vocals, guitar, keyboard); Bradley Hale (drums, backing vocals); Jess Abbott (guitar, vocals); Britty Hale (keyboard) and Christine Sako (bass)

Hear:
“Jesus Camp” – Shows where their headed, now where they’ve been. Stick with this sound and they’ll be HUGER THAN HUGE

Download — Now, Now – “Jesus Camp”

“Roommates” – Stars like play on words lyrics
