Live @ WKDU: Grandchildren
ALBUM RELEASE CELEBRATION! Grandchildren have recently emerged on the Philadelphia and Brooklyn music scene carving out a sonic niche of their own with their unique brand of electro-acoustic orchestral folk-pop. Their blend of complex syncopated rhythms, ground shaking backbeats, and sentimental melodies hits all the sweet spots of a post-rock musical experience- like rocket science meets comfort food, conjuring traces of TV On the Radio, Animal Collective, old-school Michael Jackson, and a night at the symphony. Their continuously evolving live show is musical chairs of vocals, samplers, live orchestral drums, interwoven electric and acoustic guitars, blistering horns and warring synths that amount to a sonic powerhouse and a circus-like spectacle.
