The Midgetmen are an ever devolving work in progress, if progress is measured in inches and how far four friends can take an unhealthy hobby. Called Austin's slop-punk mavens by a local writer, The Midgetmen just keep getting louder, fuzzier, and more fun... which is all the band has wanted to do since forming in 2002. Well, that and get free beer. The Calm Blue Sea’s lushly textured sound is a study in contrast. The music the (mostly) instrumental band from Austin, Texas creates, like its oceanic name, is at once beautiful and violent, transcendent and triumphant. With song structures measured in minutes rather than measures, the foursome marries post-rock fugues with classically-inspired arrangements, the aggression and heaviness of metal, the artiness of indie rock and the widescreen expanse of a film score. The end result is stunning. Following a nearly year and half hiatus, The Calm Blue Sea is back, once again establishing themselves as one of the most anticipated and talked about bands to come out of the fertile Austin music scene in years.
