THE WORLD BLANKET
releases groundbreaking debut CD
What is that sound? A violin? A sax? Infectious freaking handclaps? Yes, yes, yes, but what’s more – it is the mellifluous sound of indie rock’s rebirth! Philadelphia quartet The World Blanket is gently bowing the genre awake with their seamless blend of strings, straws and vocal struts on their debut CD “aMaybe” (No Applause Records, 2006).
Earnest and instantly memorable, The World Blanket moonlights as a decadent orchestra before jolting their audience with a cold water blast of rock. Mike’s resonant vocals – a cross between a young Prince and Wheatus’ Brendan B. – urge the audience to believe, while strings and percussion drive a dichotomy of urgency and peace.
Even an indie rock scholar could not predict The World Blanket’s musical turn. With their menagerie of instruments and fervid love of music, they give a voice to the unheard. Renew the faith in indie rock!
The World Blanket is:
Grant – drums, piano, shaker, triangle, handclaps, board
Jon – violin
Mark – bass, trumpet, saxophone, handclaps
Mike – vocals, acoustic guitar, keyboard, handclaps, pitch pipe
with special guests Ami – vocals; Andrew – vocals; J.C. – cello, vocals
come on, believe
