19 - Nice Daughter

Genre: Electronic/ Experimental/ Percussion/ Classical/ Techno/ Freakjams
Location: North Jersey
Website: www.myspace.com/nicedaughter

Bio: Nice Daughter is emerging from the woods of North Jersey spreading its sound waves outward seeping into the dreams and nightmares of people throughout the land. A mix of live percussion and synth creates an atmospheric rock and techno vibe with influences ranging from squarepusher to Aphex Twin to Nine Inch Nails with hints of the neo-classicism of 20th and 21st century composers. They are now performing critically acclaimed live shows in New Jersey and New York. You can see clips of their impeccable performances on their myspace page. When hearing this trio I am reminded of Terry Riley and Phillip Glass but transcribed for percussive instruments. Although they are only three they summon an orchestral array of sounds and timbres.

Their jams incorporate poly-rhythms and odd time signatures as well as contrasting dynamic shifts and trance inducing vibraphone melodies. Massive beats accompany deft synth work as their music grows and changes like an amoeba fluctuating in size and shape. If you are looking for something new in your hum-drum day to day life then check out Nice Daughter for some excitement, a transportation to a new world, a new life where monotony ceases to exist. This band holds your ticket to escaping the back-breaking day in day out slaving away in the mines. Take a break, a fresh breath and a good listen to Nice Daughter.
