|Greenskeepers album, Polo Club
|As individuals, guitarist/keyboard maestro Mark Share, electro-percussionist James Curd, microphone banter master Nick Maurer, and bassist Coban Rudish are fine musicians, humans even, but in the greater order, they are mere mortals. Together, they are the Greenskeepers —a band of brothers and an ordinance of auditory assault. Not to be confined by any box, the band barely balked at the overwhelming success of their underground hit “Lotion,” from their second album Pleetch, and the accompanying mash-up video that continues to delightfully infest computer screens across the globe.
Instead, the collective returned to the Chicago studio to create seventeen interstellar tracks featuring the band’s signature guitar-driven sonic hooks and unpredictable vocals. Polo Club, marks an unforeseen level of musical progression and a testament to the power of four.
Polo Club is the culmination of two years of touring the world as a cohesive unit. “We wanted to focus on working within the band itself and making a record that showcases what we do live.” says James Curd. “When we sat down and thought of how we wanted the new record to sound we all agreed it would be fun to use Lotion as our starting point. We kept telling ourselves, ‘More Guitars!’” The end result is a collection of songs that perfectly captures the insane genius and singular sound of the Greenskeepers.
The first two singles, “Polo Club” and “15 Minutes,” spotlight the new boundaries the Greenskeepers are breaking. Polo Club is a high-octane pop-punk joyride brimming with the infectious energy the band is known for. The more thought-provoking 15 Minutes captures the ‘Keepers’ ability to write a well crafted song.
Polo Club also includes a special bonus CD featuring Greenskeepers’ remixes and original tracks
mixed live at Love (NYC) by James Curd.
