The Great Dumbening
CD - $10.00
Poppy, lo-fi indie rock with its own identity from the San Francisco Bay Area. Grnd Ntl Brnds take a loose, jangly sound, pump it up with fuzzy rock, slow it down to make it a bit more engulfing, and then take you along for a bouncy, acid reminiscent journey. One that will have you sinking in the beauty of the female's vocals and shaken awake by the abrasive male vocalist. This is contradicting rock that gives you two different feelings, while always ensuring you feel the timid, stumbling power that runs through the songs.
Features members of Fibulator, Little My, Thinking Fellers Union Local 282, and the Molecules, this is their second full-length!
GrndNtl Brnds proved its strength and commitment to local Rock Music for 14 quarters. The corporate entity that existed as GrndNtl Brnds was comprised of myself (drums), Dren McDonald of Giant Ant Farm (vocals and guitars), Kris Langan from Fibulator (vocal, guitar, bass), and Rick Weldon of Little My (vocals, guitar, bass & keyboards).
