THE SILENT LEAGUE
A bit of chamber pop for you today....
JUSTIN RUSSO plays in the band HOPEWELL with his brother Jason and has also played keyboards with MERCURY REV. He formed THE SILENT LEAGUE in 2002 and released their debut album two years later. OF STARS AND OTHER SOMEBODIES, the band's sophomore effort, dropped in June.
Generally-speaking, the Silent League traffic in sad, slow, lush pop. Mercury Rev are one touchstone. THE FLAMING LIPS and GRANDADDY are a couple of others.
The Silent League will be playing NYC's Mercury Lounge on August 10 with LOS CAMPESINOS!.
