More Humans is a DC-based trio whose sound is equal
parts angular guitar play and arresting three-part vocal
harmonies, the latter described by the Pittsburgh
Post-Gazette as "haunting." Consisting of three high
school friends, their music has an intimate quality that
comes only from years of playing music with each other,
talking for hours about art, and coming of age together.
Though they were weaned on D.C. post-punk, More Humans
are as much informed by the melodic sensibility of 60's
folk and the playfulness of 70's New Wave as they are by
the Dischord catalog.
Previously based in Pittsburgh, they released Welcome
to the Childhood Home of Andy Warhol and Dan Marino in
2005, an LP that enjoyed undistilled adulation from
local radio and press. Following its release, the band
embarked on a national tour that took them from D.C. to
San Francisco and back. In addition to Welcome to
the Childhood Home of Andy Warhol and Dan Marino,
More Humans has produced an astonishing series of
homemade EPs, including 2009’s gorgeous Barbaro.
The band will enter the studio late summer 2010 to begin
work on a sophomore LP with Chad Clark (The
Dismemberment Plan, Lungfish, Beauty Pill).

Humans) hit their mark, the results are undeniably
sharp... they have an impressive ability to borrow liberally from
the early '70s rock bands like Ten Years After and '90s
grunge warriors... "Cigarette Basement" packs a series of
potent shifts from NYC no-wave pop harmony to Cobain growls.
After the band audits these rock staples... they hit us
with the title track's acoustic prog-rock brilliance. Here, (they)
are operating on all cylinders - firing off psychedelic
guitar work, rich vocal harmonies, absurdly vast dynamics and
lyrics just ridiculous enough to match the music's
inherent nuttiness... it's really fucking great when a band isn't
afraid to be ridiculous and ambitious. It sure beats the
