The Shouting Matches Grown Ass Man on Import LP + Download
New Side Project from Bon Iver's Justin Vernon!
Brian Moen (Peter Wolf Crier), Phil Cook (Megafaun) and Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) played one show as The Shouting Matches nearly seven years ago. They reunited in Eau Claire, Wisconsin this past year and made a record fusing influences into what they do best: playing together. Over years of sharing stages and studios in a myriad of projects, they come together as a trio and give you Grownass Man, a record with Midwestern knuckles and Southern callouses. The album marks the first release from Middle West, the management firm behind all of Vernon's musical endeavors.
"It doesn't even take 10 seconds for The Shouting Matches' debut album, Grownass Man, to present itself as something lighter in spirit than anything by Bon Iver; even before the opening riffs, a mere glance at the cover shows a smiling Justin Vernon, hanging out with his hometown pals. This isn't the stuff of mystery or misery, of yearning, of finding one's voice in a secluded cabin. It's the work of a guy who loves playing music - who's drawn influence from Talk Talk and Bruce Hornsby and many points in between — and saw an opportunity to have a blast on the side with friends he's joined on stage whenever possible." - Stephen Thompson, NPR
