We became aware of the Los Angeles band Milo Greene thanks to obsessive behavior in collecting songs with titles that are merely years in the 20th century. For Milo Greene, the year-based title is “1957” (technically, the title may have been an address). However, we didn’t become aware of the performance skills of Milo Greene until we migrated to their set at the Outside Lands Festival in 2013. Listening to recorded music from the band did not provide preparation for the combination of guitar and harmonization talent that was readily apparent at Outside Lands.
So, the obvious decision was to watch for the next opportunity to see Milo Greene in a more intimate setting. When the tour announcement was that the band would open for Bombay Bicycle Club, we grabbed tickets.
Milo Greene has been working on new music. To quote their website, “After a full year of writing, demoing, recording, mixing, mastering, and nitpicking, our new album, “Control”, will be available January 27th, 2015.” The first single is “White Lies.” It fits more easily into the Pop genre than we would prefer, but we’re still looking forward to seeing it live at The Warfield on October 5.
The members of Milo Greene are Robbie Arnett, Graham Fink, Marlana Sheetz, Andrew Heringer and Curtis Marrero.
