A Concise Review: Shiny Eyed Babies


Here is my brief review of the recent Bent Knee album, Shiny Eyed Babies. Here goes:

Imagine if Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd, Van der Graaf Generator, Radiohead, Soundgarden, and any other avant-garde band you can think of got together and produced an album. And the product was wonderful. This is Bent Knee’s Shiny Eyed Babies in a nutshell.

All the members, from the violinist to the drummer, are top-notch musicians, but frontwoman and lead singer Courtney Swain really stands out. Her vocal range is incredible, and she can play keyboards pretty well, too.

Bent Knee, whose members hail from the Boston area (my neck of the woods), will release a new album, Say So, next week. Check these guys out. It will be worth your time.
