When I shot the Akron/Family a few weeks ago, I was totally impressed with their opener, Princess Music. All classically trained musicians working in a more pop style just DOES it for me, and at the show people were buzzing about this “kinda Talking Heads sounding” band. You know things are gonna be good when a cello comes out. Tyler Ludwick, the guitarist and singer has been compared to Sufjan Stevens many times in the media, I can hear it but feel Ludwick has a more upbeat quirkiness. This band is special, sweet and whimsical but sincere and down to Earth. Denver, this is a local band to watch, for sure. Check out their song “White Wave”, which starts with the best instrument of all, the music box, then builds with the bass and strings and oh, just so lovely. Then that sweet voice. I’m in love with Princess Music.
