Milo Greene fits snugly alongside The Head and The Heart and Of Monsters and Men in the new indie-carnation of the folk canon. The Los Angeles quintet started making sound waves last year when they received standing ovations opening for The Civil Wars without even an mp3 to their name (if J. J. Redick is a fan, you know they’ve got something going for them). Now, their self-titled debut rife with “complex harmonies and organic, richly textured instrumentation” arrives July 17th via Chop Shop/Atlantic Records.

For the uninitiated, check out “Don’t You Give Up On Me”. Vocalists Graham Fink, Marlana Sheetz, Robbie Arnett, and Andrew Heringer harmonize on lines like, “Don’t you ever show us your bones / ‘Cause I’ll dig, I’ll dig, I’ll dig our own little hole”, the repetition of sweet and morbid promises matching those pounded piano chords that open the song. For the chance to give that song a standing ovation of your own, check out Milo Green’s upcoming tour schedule after the tracklist for Milo Greene.
