Melville at The Hawthorne Theatre 11.9

Melville at The Hawthorne Theatre 11.9

Melville is a band with roots in americana and alt-country. Those roots clearly influenced their new album, however the current sound that is Melville is firmly filed under the "rock and roll" section at your local record store, in case you were hoping to pick up a copy of the band’s recently released EP, Maquette. With an anything but shallow rock sound, Melville mixes layered electric guitars in unique and often beautiful ways, taking a break from a driving song line up to bring moving instrumental rock moments like “Einleitung” to life. Ryan T. Jacobs is the front man and creator of this four piece force and it is clear he has worked hard to create a tight band and album with diversity and heart. See Melville tomorrow night at the Hawthorne Theatre with Minor Alps and The Upside Down. - Joy Pearson
