Kamikaze Hearts

I've been sitting on this post for a while, but no longer. The Upstate Porch Rock must be shared, because it's honest, true, and damn good. Plus, they are about to be making a stop at Montpelier's very own collectively owned coffe house/community space/anarchist haven/music venue:

Kamikaze Hearts w/ Micah Blue Smaldone - March 2 - 8 PM - Langdon Street Cafe

The Kamikaze Hearts are a Albany, NY quartet that plays passionate acoustic roots-rock/appalachian/indie folk. Armed only with four part harmonies, acoustic guitars, a mandolin, and a three piece drum kit (plus the occasional banjo and dobro), their sound proves to be full and their energy electric. I've caught them live on two occasions and have experienced them impress not only the folk crowd (Cafe Lena - the "oldest continuously operating coffeehouse in the US" and stop for the young Bob Dylan (1961), Arlo Guthrie and Don McLean), but also the indie rockers (they toured the Eastern US last summer with indie/pop outfit The Sixfifteens).

As their bio suggests, they are equally influenced by the Mountain Goats, Black Sabbath, and Ricky Skaggs.

The Kamikaze Hearts' second full-length, Oneida Road, is expected to be released summer 2006. The future's looking bright.
