The Novel Ideas released their new self-titled album, which was called “rich” and “melodic” by No Depression, on September 8th. Featuring the singles “Old Ways” and “I’ll Try”, the album, produced by Rick Parker (Lord Huron) and mixed by Ryan Freeland (Ray LaMontagne, Bonnie Raitt), showcases the band at its best. Track by track, The Novel Ideas represents a contribution to the country-folk scene that balances love-and-loss melancholy with thoughtful instrumentation and intricate vocal arrangements.
The Novel Ideas are a four-piece band from Boston, MA. Since their formation, they have earned a reputation from fans and music critics alike for their moving four-part harmonies and rich Americana sound— one that provides “a certain level of comfort” according to Baeble.
From rock clubs to living rooms to festival stages, the band strives to convey honesty and intimacy through their music. Interview Magazine notes that, “While their folksy sound falls somewhere in between The Head and The Heart and The Avett Brothers, the band has a unique ability to connect with audiences from their deeply personal songs.”
The Novel Ideas are Sarah Grella (vocals), Danny Hoshino (guitar, pedal steel, vocals), James Parkington (bass, vocals) and Daniel Radin (guitar, vocals).
