Green

by Demimonde Slumber Party

Demimonde Slumber Party sounds like a 60's surf musical starring David Bowie, Sleater-Kinney, & the B-52s’ Fred Schneider as the crazy uncle...

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Demimonde Slumber Party (DSP) is a female-led indie rock band based in the lush, leafy town of Eugene, Oregon. Sixties garage rock served up with a heaping portion of psychedelic surf-punk & a side of math-pop make this musical feast your perfect midnight snack.

Their exuberant set is a full-course fiesta featuring a calorie-burning cuisine of riot-grrrl romps and playful ballads with sweetly-honed harmonies. Plus they’re always sure to serve you some succulent make-out songs for dessert, like sweet treats on your pillow.

Blame full-flavored founding member, singer/songwriter/guitarist Melissa Lubofsky for DSP’s genre-mincing sounds. Her smorgasbord of influences vary wildly - David Bowie, R.E.M., and Oingo Boingo, to name a few - but her eclectic style could be partly explained by early experiences as a reluctant math nerd. This may also have contributed to her tendency to complicate an innocent song until it\'s bordering on pop-punk prog. A neurotic idealist, she wishes she could find the recipe for saving each endangered species and turning everything green and sustainable. Failing that, her mission is to discover the ingredients for keeping a sense of humor and inspiring people to save the world in fun and delicious ways!

The band’s other founding member is delectable drummer Kim Lindquist. Rumored to be the love child of Karen Carpenter and John Bonham, her punk background adds spice to Melissa’s sugary melodic tendencies. Indeed, this seasoned musician has been playing drums since the tender age of twelve. She is also a gourmet graphic designer, cooking up DSP art for CD covers, t-shirts, and more!

Then we have Seattle bassist Tim Romain on hand to fold some \"meatee\" chunks of rhythm into the DSP sauce - and plans are in the works to expand the menu and include more musicians to add their savory flavors...

Be sure to have your pj’s and sleeping bags ready for the next appearance of Demimonde Slumber Party! They’ll bring the popcorn!

\"...Demimonde Slumber Party has proven that it\'s easy to pack upward of four genres into a nine-track album....Green contains songs that range from \'60s psychedelic rock to fast, angsty pop punk, with a folk ballad or two thrown in for good measure.\" - Eugene Weekly

\"...the lyrics are profound...\" - LCC Torch

Honest, soulful lyrics
I am entranced by Demimonde Slumber Party's GREEN, replaying all weekend long! Any human who has experienced the joys and sufferings of life and love will relate to these honest, soulful lyrics.

A few of my favorite songs are "Skin Hunger" and "Delight Me". "Santa Barbara" is a fun, punky tune, a "longing to be any where else but here". I'm not fond of comparing, but this one reminds me of the B52s with a Morriset edge.

If you are in Oregon, check out the scene for Demimonde gigs. Melissa, Kim and Tim are an unassuming threesome with a purity that creates instant connection and understanding.

not your mama's pop Huh?
while looking for the detroit all girl band slumber party on cd baby this blind music lover blundered into this cool band and the title of the review says it all. it's kind of like the reaction that the men of station 51 on emergency had when they ate a meal that one of the other men who made it thought was wrecked. one of them said something like every bite was different. one song i sampled was punk another was funk and still another was almost a pop standard. well mellissa you can do like the songs says take my hand delight me Huh?
