Confessionals

A taste of what it might sound like if Iron & Wine got together with Elliot Smith for some beautiful acoustic harmonies. A touch of new folk for fans of eclectic music...

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I. catacombs - II. CONFESSIONALS* - III. cathedrals

No more classic grandiose.
No more lush cinematic production.
Not a single note played that didn't absolutely have to be there.

Millbrook's new objective for Confessionals, the 2nd epistle in a trilogy of EP's: to find the profound in the simple...to make the familiar exotic and the arcane instantly accessible... to say very much with very little...to begin in the everyday and end in the infinite.

Confessionals is the day after the devastation, the settling of the dust, the search for survivors, the plans to rebuild, the shaky-legged, bittersweet return of sentiment to trembling lips. If Millbrook music has been everything but the kitchen sink up to this point, then this collection of songs is just the kitchen sink alone. Organic. Acoustic. Intrinsic.

Confessionals has a flavor that's very distinct from Catacombs and Cathedrals, the other two sister works in the trilogy. It's a essentially a collection of very humble songs about the ones you love - your loves that are present as well as your loves that are absent. This here is the fine line between heartache & heart break.

Similar to Iron and Wine & Elliott Smith in delivery, Millbrook proves to you and themselves that at the nucleus, under all the orchestral frills and piano trills, that good solid songs do indeed exist. If you're already acquainted with the music of Millbrook, then this EP will be quite a 180 degree turn from what you may expect. If you've never been introduced the music, then this small & affordable EP is a good accessible introduction to see humble concrete foundation on which lavish & tawdry sonic buildings are erected. Familiar now or not, it's certain that you & Millbrook will be close friends after these songs break the ice and you find that this was exactly what you wanted to say...that the words were on the tip of your tongue...that these songs were the just the songs you were about to write yourself.

Millbrook is the awesome to the maX +1!!!
This band is the awesome to the maX + 1!!!

If you like bands reminiscent of the Beatles then you will like this band. But they also have their own unique flavor. It is hauntingly beautiful. It's the kind of music that goes down so deep into you that it hurts to listen too, but in a good way!

If you are a romantic these albums are perfect for you!!! The songs are ones that just stalk you for the whole day buzzing around your brain. You will find your self humming the songs from out of no where.

Millbrook is definitely something you will always want to have in your favorites collection. It's a keeper I swear! You've got to try these guys! DO IT! DO IT NOW!!!

I play this EP over and over and over and over
I love the new direction Millbrook is taking with this new cd. The music is capivating and haunting. It is a sincere revelation of human emotion and feeling. I can not help but play the tracks over and over again, every time it is finished! With its clean and creative instramentation, why is this music not on a a film score yet? Can't wait for the next EP!

This isn't your mom and pop's folk music...
Genre's are so hard to nail down w/ the emergence and convergence of new technology in music production. With that said, I would not "pidgeon-hole" Millbrook to one genre. It is clear that they're influenced by the folk world of the past, however their music has a unique quality that elevates the genre for the "new-millenium". I would guess that it is a challenge for today's musicians not to get carried away in production given all the tools that are available now at the "click" of a mouse. Millbrook found the fine line w/ this EP. The blend of instrument and sound is great. The vocals are clean and harmonic. I look for music that either energizes and or causes me to reflect. Millbrook is reflection music for me. This music is primed for the "king-maker" Nic Harcourt to feature on Morning Becomes Eclectic on KCRW-Santa-Monica California. The audience would really appreciate these artists...
