Schuba’s Tavern | Chicago, Illinois | April 4, 2014

   Friday’s Desert Noises show at Schuba’s Tavern could potentially be the final time this gifted band plays a venue this small in Chicago.  Desert Noises are currently touring North America supporting their new album “27 Ways.”  On this evening, they were the opening act for headliners The Wheeler Brothers, and were allotted a solid 45 minute set.   Kyle, Tyler, Brennan, and Pat wasted no time, and launched into a wonderful performance of mostly newer material, with little dashes of “Mountain Sea.”  It was a caustic set, that ended far too early for my fanatical self, but what I witnessed was something beautiful to behold.  These four players undoubtedly know each other’s tendencies, and it gives them a glorious fluidity together.  Mind, Body, Spirit.  Each member is fulfilling the perfect role within the band itself.  Brennan Allen, the drummer, holds down the groove with both stone simple and then poly-rhythmic tempos.   Tyler Osmond, bassman and back-up vocalist, is the other side of the battery, and him and Brennan have a lovely work ethic.   Pat Boyers guitar playing is equal to that of Mike McCready’s, and extremely flammable when stoked.  Boyers, just like the rest of the band – never over plays, only showcasing his extraordinary talent at the most appropriate times.  With this brilliant execution, the musical spirituality of this band only resonates further.  Kyle Henderson, exemplary lead vocalist and rhythm guitar player is the final puzzle piece of this quartet that illustrates perfectly how Rock n Roll and Vocal Harmonies should meet together.  Henderson’s vocals never waiver, even at the most precarious of moments.   The aural connection that Osmond and Henderson have together closely resembles the harmonies of an Everly Brothers tradition.  Desert Noises from Provo, Utah should not be overlooked or slept on.  This is an outstanding band that is beginning to blossom, yet will continue to develop musically.  Don’t Sleep.   Desert Noises will be playing at Lollapalooza this Summer 2014.
