Kid, You’ll Move Mountains is easily the best band from Chicago’s Western ‘burbs (my stomping grounds) that I’ve heard in quite some time but for whatever reason, I’ve been meaning to review Loomings (their most recent release) for, like, forever. Maybe the reason I haven’t is that the band makes comparisons difficult. I don’t usually have trouble with saying this band sounds like that one, but KYMM incorporates so much good stuff that, frankly, I’m having trouble. Loomings is chock full of indie-post-whatever rock that’s equally piano/guitar based and complete with awesome alternating male/female vocals. It all adds up to a dense and melodic sound that is as catchy as it is intricate. Still, it sounds wholly Midwestern, and that’s a good thing. Perhaps, KYMM remind me (in places) of bands like Minus The Bear, Rainer Maria, The Anniversary, Maritime, etc… It’s honest music that sound huge while also being intimate and is simultaneously relaxed but totally exciting. Seriously, do yourself a favor and check out Kid, You’ll Move Mountains. Loomings is endlessly listenable, totally enjoyable, and one of my favorite records as of late.
