Milktooth EP Release feat. Milktooth, Grass Root Kids & Charlie Hardin
In an age of genre revivalism and postmodern blips and bleeps, Belmont-BMOC college rockers Milktooth are an unabashed band of their own time. That case is closed by the monthly video series “Stay Home America,” in which the band captures itself covering Aughts and au courant indie-rock favorites by contemporary influences like Beach House and The xx. If those artists, and others like Arcade Fire, The National, Broken Social Scene, Interpol and The Walkmen, fly your fancy (along with a healthy helping of unapologetic U2 appreciation), then look forward to spreading Milktooth’s latest EP Wild Before Your Eyes’ seven anthemic tracks across your Spotify playlists. The band swings for the stadium rock fences with Babe Ruth-worthy ease on standouts like the earnest “The Gate,” the Joshua Tree-on-safari tribal epic “Laredo!” and the driving rocker “In My Blood.” Fellow zeitgeist-y local hearts-on-sleevers Grass Root Kids and good-natured local alt-rocker Charlie Hardin open tonight’s release show.
