Carry The Light

"Carry The Light" From the upcoming EP "She Changes Face" (out friday!) is now available to listen to and download.

Heres some nice things said about the song already:

"Carry The Light" illustrates that slowing the pace doesn't slow your enjoyment down at all. If a song can do such a thing, it makes a man feel really quite sentimental."-Bluesbunny UK

"The listener can hear the vocals of Matt Kollar and Elizabeth Messick dance around each other. The two voices remind me of a couple of my favorite artists, one of which being Jenny Lewis from Rilo Kiley and Tom Waits…pre swallowing hot coals and drinking broken glass."-OC Arts and Culture

The Many Faces of She Changes Face

Over the next couple weeks before She Changes Face is realased on March 5th,2010 we will be putting out different cover versions of the first single "She Changes Face" each one in a unique style by an artist we like.

Take a listen!


The She-Monks acapella version of 'She Changes Face"

"Who are the She-Monks?"
This is the sound of a question you may be asking in your head, at this very moment.
The real answer is quite a long, sick, complicated story of deceit, betrayal, drugs and money laundering.
The simple answer is, The She-Monks were an acapella group who rose to fame and success in the 1960s until tensions and jealousy broke them up.
Fortunately, Matt Kollar and the Angry Mob, being music aficionados and saintly people, searched out the She Monks and offered them a chance to record once again. This time to do a cover of the bands first new single from the album She Changes Face, "She Changes Face". So listen dear,sweet listeners to the bittersweet acapella melodies of The She-Monks.



The first is by our friend Carlen Luke Walth.

It is a very pretty acoustic version with a roads piano and a harmonica solo in place of the trombone.

 She Changes Face, the follow-up EP to Matt Kollar and the Angry Mob’s debut 2008 album, “Farewell Adventure!,” is an experiment in the different styles that the band has to offer to the world. Track one, “She Changes Face,” is a Ben Folds inspired piano-rock song with an accordion, a piano, and a trombone dueling off in the solo section. “To The Night” takes you on a bright walk through the local park with only a Paris café style accordion as your companion. “A Driftin’ Blues,” on the other hand, has a rougher sound with distorted megaphone vocals over unruly trombone parts. “Carry The Light,” track 5, strips the instruments down to simply an acoustic guitar, glockenspiel, and Matt Kollar and Elizabeth Messick’s vocals before throwing all the instruments together in an experimental symphony of noise and opera on the closing track “Gotta Get Blue.” She Changes Face is a stepping-stone for all the crazy sounds the band is cooking up next.
