Kindo’s sound can be heady and refined like contemporary jazz, but not without the grit and backbone grooves of rock riffs and pop vocals.
It is driven by jazz-influenced piano & keys (Robert Glasper meets Hiromi, meets Dave Brubeck), in a body of polyrhythmic – rock ‘n groove drums (Mutemath meets Pat Metheny Group meets Radiohead), sophisticated blues rock bass grooves (Pino Palladino meets Stone Temple Pilots) and an expressive but pop-sensible vocalist (Justin Timberlake with Jamie Cullum & Jeff Buckley tendencies). Not to mention a supporting cast of guitars that make sure to span the gamut of genre-bending that each song calls for. (Too many different artists to reference efficiently. Not that a bio this long could be considered efficient by any means, but you get the point.)
It is Piano-Driven Alt-Jazz and keeps the mistress of Latin and R & B close by its side. Its members can shift and change, but it’s sonic mantra remains. It is a musical playground.
Kindo (The Reign Of Kindo) has become one of the most unlikely phenomenons to infiltrate the modern music world. Almost ten years since their debut EP hit #5 on the Billboard Middle Atlantic Heatseekers chart in 2007, this band has only just begun to emerge from their decade-long journey from rags to… better rags with resumes. In an industry where big money and privilege can buy you radio play, TV appearances and audience, Kindo managed to rack up over 3 million views on youtube, over 2.5 Million Spotify plays, & Sell over 30,000 records across the globe, all without the help of any major label. It has become evident, theirs is the sort of sound that so many music lovers are eager to discover and enjoy.
The band has become prolific in recent days; writing and producing a brand new song every month since late 2016. These efforts are made possible by a continually impressive showing of support from their most devoted fans on Patreon. (Patreon.com/thereignofkindo) Patrons receive a brand new song each month, at least a year before it is compiled onto an album to be released in the marketplace. The best of the patreon songs made up their latest album ‘Happy However After’ released in April of 2018. This new body of work is a continued exploration of neo-soul, post-rock, R&B as well as the next chapter in the story of their unique blend of sounds.
It’s worth noting that every Kindo track since 2006 has been produced in-house by the band, engineered & mixed by frontman, Joey Secchiaroli. This allows the band to create without compromise. The music is made solely with the band & its fans in mind.
About Milquetoast & Co:
Calling itself Milquetoast & Co. (pronounced milk toast and company), this Denver-based quintet mingles high-intensity, angular elements of Americana with equal parts rock and blues and a touch of pomp and pageantry. Their songs tell the tales of life; embracing the joy and sorrow of complex human relationships while tipping a well-tailored cap to the moments of beauty and irreverence we all share. Originally based in Boston, Milquetoast & Co. self-released three albums prior to parting ways for a series of “it seemed like a good idea at the time” reasons, from parenthood to world travel. Waiting for the time and circumstances to be right, the band re-established itself, deep in the heart of the Rockies. Now, with a fully re-formed lineup, Milquetoast & Co. are picking-up where the love affair left off.
