Cincinnati trio The Seedy Seeds are currently cruising across the United States on the final leg of their early spring tour in support of their new album Verb Noun. Before heading to Austin for SXSW 2011 they hooked up with some friends in Brooklyn, piled into the back of a moving truck, and recorded a video for the album’s title track.
Since the self-release of Verb Noun last month, critics have begun to weigh in with praise for The Seedy Seeds. You Aint No Picassocalls the album “goooood” with extra Os for emphasis, and Pretty Much Amazing gives a thumbs up for the “pretty and uplifting pop music that combines folksy charm and electronic reverberation into one delightfully endearing package.” My Old Kentucky Blog gave praise to The Seedy Seeds “brand of pop that blends banjo, guitar, drums, synth with earnest vocal harmonies and clever lyrics.” The Huffington Post writes that the among bands incorporating electronic music in their sound, the “band have found their niche with an intriguing banjo hybrid.”
In addition to unveiling the video for “Verb Noun” The Seedy Seeds are also giving fans a listen to the album’s the companion disk Friends of The Seedy Seeds, which features their peers from Cincinnati and elsewhere covering the songs on the album. Contributors including You, You’re Awesome, Vandaveer, Pop Empire, Ben Davis from Bad Veins, Chuck & Lisa from Wussy, No No Knots, and others each give their own take on the songs from Verb Noun. Fans can stream the album in full at Soundcloud.
