This show is coming up and I got the privilege of listening to the new Milo In The Doldrums album and as one does I reviewed it so here is my review of "Richards Glasses"
" The freshman album from Milo in the Doldrums, "Richard's Glasses", is a dazzling sonic journey from Intro to What Is Never True. Intro is just great and makes you feel great don't skip it it's essential 39 seconds of listening. Selfless and Undyed is the beginning of our hero's journey who seems stuck in ...the "Doldrums" if you will, has his moment of realization and leaves the Doldrums much like in the book they take their name from "The Phantom Tollbooth" by Norton Juster . The third song I already knew I liked I've heard it many times from following them and I'm damn glad it's on this album. Honest Abe is great it's high energy and has great guitar solos and is well written lyrically. Mowgli maintains the high energy and almost feels like a nod to grunge of the past when they start the breakdown and chaos near the end of the song. In the chaos though a shiny light appears that is Birds and the Bees that feels like a calm float through the River Styx with it's haunting chords and spooky effects in the song, defiantly a song that will make you close your eyes envelop you and cause you to sway. Wadin in The Weeds features some of the grooviest bass lines on the album from Reis paired with some of those angelic guitar part from Richard invokes a early May hike. This brings us to What Is Never True, the final song on this adventure, Ole' Rob's lyrics are on point through out the album and this song is the summation of the journey he just took us on especially as the final chord rings out with his last line " There Must Be Something Underneath". It's brilliant, I loved every moment of it, get this album! It's coming out on April 8th at a dual album release show with The Duskwhales at Jammin Java that is the must attend event of the spring."
