Aloha’s new album, Home Acres, finds the quartet seeking a balance between the relative quiet of their previous studio outings and the more frenetic pace and volume of their live persona. As a result, Home Acres offers a compelling new vision for Aloha in the studio, as they weave in sounds and themes that suggest everything from the Math-tinged madness of Pavement, the Prog/Pop intricacy of Adrian Belew, the classically majestic Rock of The Doors and the keyboard-driven swagger of Spoon.
Aloha’s Cincinnati stop at the Contemporary Arts Center is also the 2010 MidPoint Music Festival kickoff event. Along with tons of great music, attendees will also find out the latest developments involving this September’s MidPoint return. They perform with Pomegranates and The Buried Wires.
