Quiet Life [Band]

Good old fashion down home and Neil Young inspired tunes to sip whiskey from a cup made of tin. This is what you can expect from a Quiet Life song. So, break out the flannel and let these Portland based Americana masters take you down a grassy trail littered with pain, love, and a prestigious sense of what is natural and/or necessary to continue on breathing. For all the eighties babies out there that truly believe they were screwed from conception by being born far to late, here is a group that can bring forth the nostalgia you wish you could have. Here is old school storytelling dubiously running through a new school musical disobedience.

One of Quiet Life’s finest tracks has to be the harmonica driven & twanged out “Cave Country”. It would be entirely impossible to feel like shit when you listen to this song. In fact, the line “Feels so good” is constantly repeated for reinforcement. Nicely played. “Big Green” takes you on a dusty path slightly skewed from the previous mentioned track. This is old school folk to the core. The difference between these tracks perfectly demonstrates the awesome versatility these lumberjacks of indie rock have. They portray a sense of respect for the past that often goes untouched. What a well rounded batch of pine forest folksmiths.

Catch Quiet Life on tour this winter all over the eastern side of the country!
