At first glance, Arc Iris appears to have landed here from the future of music -- and it’s not just the flashy outfits and dramatic lighting, either. With a fortress of keyboards, some of the tastiest drumming around, and the magnetic whirlwind of Jocie Adams heading it all up with twisting stories and songs, this trio from Providence, Rhode Island, packs a lot of memorable punch through musical virtuosity that’s sure to make an impact on any audience. Adams may be familiar from her time in the innovative indie-folk band, The Low Anthem, but Arc Iris is truly its own creature, drawing comparisons to the likes of Björk and Radiohead with their unusual approach to pop music. Moon Saloon, the second album by Arc Iris, is out now from Bella Union. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
Laura Loriga is the principal songwriter and performer for the band Mimes Of Wine. Currently splitting her time (and band members) between NYC and Bologna, Italy, Loriga drives the project with her stunning voice and tasteful piano playing. Though her newest release is the first to feature a full band, for this session Mimes Of Wine appears in its rawest form, as Laura Loriga solo, on keyboard and vocals at Serious Business Music in DUMBO. La Maison Verte by Mimes Of Wine is available now.
