Release Date: July 13, 2010
Blue Giant, named after the brightest star in the galaxy, is the creation of Kevin and Anita Robinson, better known as Portland, Ore. indie-pop darlings Viva Voce. The Robinson’s new band features Chris Funk (The Decemberists), Evan Railton (Swords) and Seth Lorinczi (The Golden Bears). Produced by Kevin Robinson, Blue Giant will be released on July 13th.
On their self-titled debut, Blue Giant combines the traditional sounds of American music – country, bluegrass, and folk with driving, straight-ahead rock. The twelve tracks on the album, written by Kevin and Anita, showcase that versatility from the classic country feel of “Lonely Girl,” to the melodic guitars in “Clean The Clock,” to the mellow, deceptively simple “Gone For Good” which features Sleater-Kinney’s Corin Tucker.
