Kuinka and Jesse LaMonaca & the Dime Novels
Many rustic Americana bands dabble in dream pop, but few do it as electronically as Seattle quartet Kuinka. They supposedly changed their name from Rabbit Wilde over a trademark dispute, and also because that moniker made people mistake them for bluegrass (which they kind of are, or at least progressive bluegrass). Brothers Zach and Nathan Hamer, along with cellist-percussionist Jillian Walker and singer and multi-instrumentalist Miranda Wilde, are aiming for a far younger crowd than one might expect from a band so favored on retiree radio stations like NPR, where their Tiny Desk Concert included a tiny ukulele, mini-synth, and solo drum pad. One can clearly hear cited influences such as Fleetwood Mac, Michael Jackson, and Regina Spektor in their densely layered music, especially if one imagines how those acts would have evolved if born around the same time as Rihanna. Their Casbah debut takes place November 8, where local folk heroes Jesse LaMonaca & the Dime Novels will open.
