Head of Femur--Great Plains CD + MP3

Add to Cart:


Head of Femur is the willfully weird orchestral pop brainchild of pop auteurs Mike Elsener and Matt Focht. Great Plains is the third chapter in their musical journey that started on the brittle badlands of Nebraska, continuing in the urban jungle of Chicago, transforming the band from a wieldy pop collective into a tight-knit rock band. With Great Plains, Head of Femur sheds the excessive glory of past efforts and focuses on immediate melodies and whip-smart song structures to produce the band's best set of songs to date.

Lacing together art-rock sensibilities reflective of Talking Heads and the homegrown comfort of Neil Young and The Band, Great Plains is rhythmically complex yet immediately catchy, following lyrical snapshots from Head of Femur's home state set to music that gives them flight.
