The Brother Kite

Providence, RI's the Brother Kite had their beginnings in the collaboration between musicians Patrick Boutwell and Jon Downs in 2001, but the group itself didn't come together until the following year with the addition of bassist Andrea Mason and guitarist Mark Howard. The group released a split 7" with Vaguely Starshaped in 2003 and followed it up with their first full-length, The Brother Kite, the following year. They recruited drummer Matt Rozzero soon after that, and the group started thinking about their second album. The Brother Kite emerged from their homemade studio two years later with Waiting for the Time to Be Right, an album that cobbled together the band's trademark shoegaziness with psychedelic power pop reminiscent of Smiley Smile-era Brian Wilson. Two years after the album was released, The Brother Kite found themselves getting some extra exposure when their song "The Coat of Arms" appeared on the television series Skins. The band followed up in 2010 with Isolation, before returning in 2013 with their fourth full-length, Model Rocket. ~ Margaret Reges

Diddo on medicalsw. The first few notes of Get on, me and that was exactly who I thought of, Ocean Blue.

Hmmm pretty good stuff. Reminds me of REM mixed with a lot of 90s bands like Ride.

Three cheers for The Brother Kite! One of the best guitar driven bands? You bet.

question for any brother kite fans: if you could ask them any other questions (besides where the name came from), what would they be? also, why do you think this band isn't more famous?

Great guitar sound. Reminds me of Johnny Marr and the Smiths. I agree with psychedelic comment in the review. Hopefully they have enough steam to make a follow-up release.
