Clear your calendar for October 21 & 22, 'cause in two weeks Baeble is launching an amazing (FREE!) 2011 CMJ showcase
at Spike Hill, packed with some of your favorite (and soon to be favorite) bands.
Today we're featuring another one of our acts, Kopecky Family Band
. This six-piece Nashville "family" of friends has charmed ears all across the country and the coast with appearances at Bonnaroo, CMJ, SXSW, NPR and many more. We're excited to welcome them back for their second CMJ appearance.
Kopecky Family Band is known for giving heartfelt performances with unrelenting energy; their studio work is a good place to familiarize yourself with the band's efforts. They've released three gorgeous albums so far and are working on a fourth, to be released sometime later this year. Their first album, Embraces
, is a wild ride. The swelling violin, harp and sweet harmonies in the title song are offset by the darker momentum and urgent vocals of "Trainwreck" and "Gun." Their second album, The Disaster
, is full of big, orchestral sounds with strings, horns, keys and guitars (alla Ra Ra Riot or Arcade Fire). The enchanting male/female vocal harmonies and call outs evoke surging emotions. Their latest, a digital-only release of B-sides, Of Epic Proportions
, is a continuation of the earnest ambitions of The Disaster
. Check them out at our showcase to see how well their studio sound translates.
