CROSS-POLLINATION CCLV - TUES SEP 15TH - 7:30-10 PM
PARACHUTE MUSICAL
HOW GERMAN IS IT

The quartet crafts perfect pop songs, with a bouncy jazz-inspired sound to go with Foster's stories. - www.urchicago.com - Chicago, IL

With the romp of the Decemberists, the piano-plinked fabulae of Ben Folds and exactly none of the twang of Music City, Josh Foster and company negotiate the line between sweet-natured charm and cloying pastiche. - The Riverfront Times - Saint Louis, MO

Impossibly upbeat, Nashville's Parachute Musical make some of the most entertaining, high energy piano based pop in the country... pop craftsmanship at it's finest. - Viva Indie Rock

How German Is It is an indie rock outfit from Brooklyn, NY indebted as much to the sunny 60's pop of The Tremeloes and the Mamas and the Papas as they are to more contemporary low fidelity trailblazers like Guided by Voices and Sebadoh. The songs on their debut veer from acoustic laments that recall Frightened Rabbit and Jonathan Richman ("I Will Be Famous for You") to Latin-inflected chamber music ("I Believe in Me") to harder rock informed by the riffs of bands like Future of the Left and The Hot Snakes ("Ugly Quickly").
