    Lawrence Arabia

    Pop

    Lawrence Arabia -- the pseudonym of James Milne -- is a connoisseur of classic songwriting, creating timeless music inspired as much by 1970's West Coast Americana as the indie pop of New Zealand's Flying Nun Records. Born in Christchurch, New Zealand in 1981, Milne moved to Auckland in 2002, where he first joined indie pop outfit the Brunettes. In 2004 fellow Brunettes member Ryan McPhun formed the Ruby Suns and recruited Milne as part of his ever-evolving lineup. Taking on bass duties in both bands and completing tours of the U.S. with the Brunettes, Milne returned to New Zealand and gathered together local musicians Jolyon Mulholland, Benjamin Luke Eldridge, and old friend Ryan McPhun to create what would become the Reduction Agents. At the same time, Milne's alter ego Lawrence Arabia was born. Splitting his time between the Reduction Agents and his solo project, 2006 saw Milne release his self-titled debut album as Lawrence Arabia. A collection of low-key, quirky indie pop songs, the album earned praise in his native New Zealand, but was overlooked by the majority of the music press in the Northern Hemisphere. Moving to the U.K. and setting up home in London's trendy Shoreditch, Milne set about writing his second album, financing his move with touring stints with Okkervil River and Feist as well as a job selling homesick expat New Zealanders goods from their native country. Milne's second album, Chant Darling, was recorded at various locations including Sweden and London, and was finally all brought together on home soil and released in 2009. Milne and co-writer Luke Buda won the prestigious APRA Silver Scroll Award for the song "Apple Pie Bed" in the September of the same year. ~ Richard Wilson, Rovi

    Aloud

    Pop

    Founded in an apartment in the Fenway in 2002, Aloud is a rock n’ roll band from Boston, Massachusetts. Known for tight vocals and sharp hooks, the fiery four-piece is led by chief songwriters and co-lead vocalist/guitarists Jen de la Osa and Henry Beguiristain, with Charles Murphy (bass, fancy footwork) and Frank Hegyi (drums) in tow.

    Their new 7-inch vinyl single “You Will Know” marshals the r

    eawakening of Aloud’s live sound on record. The band’s most recent studio album, the austere departure Exile, and the 42 state/four month U.S. tour that followed was met with widespread critical acclaim.

    Recently nominated “Best Indie Band” by the Boston Phoenix, Aloud is currently on tour and writing music for a follow-up album.
