I rather adore that the bio for Portland's seven-piece (yes, count 'em, seven), AgesandAges suggests that "church words" are the best way to describe its music. In fact, that same bio assures us that AgesandAges is not a cult. Good to know.
Yet, I do get the comparison. The collective's eternal optimist outlook might eek an eye roll out of the most jaded, but I gotta say, the effervescent tambourines and Sunday harmonies, for me, simply do what they oughta: lighten my mood.
On today's JOTD, "So So Freely," the free spirited indie-folksters recall the powerful group dynamic of The New Pornographers and the striking boy-girl choruses of Port O'Brien. A newly named All Songs Considered "Band to Watch For," AgesandAges is gearing up to take its unabashed enthusiasm for life in general to a wider audience. Won't you drink the Kool-Aid?
