Skittish

Skittish is folk-rock with thorns. Skittish is suburban surrender and sexual tension. Most of all, Skittish is the collection of Minneapolis musicians. led by Jeff Noller and Vonnie Kyle, who have mixed their talent. into the gumbo that is 'The Perfect Shade of Green..

Skittish is folk-rock with thorns. Skittish is suburban surrender and sexual tension. Most of all, Skittish is the collection of Minneapolis musicians. led by Jeff Noller and Vonnie Kyle, who have mixed their talent. into the gumbo that is 'The Perfect Shade of Green..

Conceived as the third full length album in 2008, band-leader Jeff Nolle. worked overnight shifts in a factory to buy studio gear and a house in whic. to build his dream studio. Close to completing work on this more rock-base. album, the recession hit hard; taking the job, the house, and current girlfrien. from the already struggling artist. Timelines, street dates, and master plans shifted and these lifestyle tectonic. led to the creation of a second, more folky, dark, and experimenta. side to “The Perfect Shade of Green..

The, now double, album will finally be released in September of 2010. With an array of home recording equipment, Noller and Kyle called in ever. favor to get the dozen twin cities musicians that are peppered throughout the album. This beautiful frankenstein monster now stood head and shoulders above the moder. indie static with its multi-instrument arrangements, the found-sound samples tha. make up it's rhythm tracks, and the literary lyrics which are both heart-breakin. and inspiring, sometimes within the same song. A massiv. album to serve as a dirge for the age of albums.

The two sides that make up 'The Perfect Shade of Green. play off each other like tennis pros. With themes an. references being lobbed back and forth from the rockin. first side that sounds like The Pixies if they played in th. sixties, to the weirder folky side, which has the feel o. The Carpenters scoring a Tim Burton movie.

Both Noller and Kyle, who have run Skittish for 4 year. as a duo, trio, and more recently a five piece, share lea. singing duties and harmonize Cash/Carter style on al. of the 24 tracks. So what is Skittish. Skittish is a band that cannot be beaten. Skittish is a band held together by great songwritin. and two rolls of duct tape. But most of all, Skittish is Jeff Noller and Vonnie Kyle. making songs for the underdogs. « hide
