Josh Steinmetz

Josh Steinmetz performs under a number of names and with several groups including Proteus, Morgana, and Origin of Species. the album "9" marks the first time all the pseudonyms were dropped and the crutches of a multi piece band left behind... the long and often over thought recording process replaced by a nine day explosion in which all nine songs were written and recorded. the unadulterated voice of a confused, obsessed, and audibly desperate man sure does make for interesting listening...

9:NINE is the new album from singer/songwriter/ & multi instrumentalist Josh Steinmetz (released digitally and as 12" Vinyl) who for the past year has been shuttling between Minneapolis and Los Angeles touring and recording both by himself and with his band Origin of Species. This group of 9 Songs (recorded in 9 days) feels dark and moody and yet never mellow dramatic..but this music is undeniably a collection of indie pop of sorts. This is the new pop music: Eclectic sincere, complex, rough around the edges, and yet deceptively simple in a way that reminds one of the Cure. With bits and pieces of folk, electronica, rock, drum & bass, doo-wop and the list goes on. Recommended!

I really liked the Jeffrey Lewis albums from the last post.

And do you know where I could find "Rest Now, Weary Head! You Will Get Well Soon" by Get Well Soon? That would be great!!!
