Editorial Reviews

Inspired by siblings, Barbara and Ethan Gruska's love for Fleetwood Mac, Simon & Garfunkel, The Beatles, and Stevie Wonder, The Belle Brigade's artfully arranged, freewheeling songs brim with breezy, California melodies and bracing pop harmonies, fueled by the driving rhythms Barbara plays on drums.

As performed by Ethan and Barbara and their talented group of backing musicians, Bram Inscore (bass), Blake Mills (electric guitar), Aaron Arntz (piano), and Jimi Hendrix/Joe Cocker keyboardist Mike Finnigan (Hammond B-3 organ), songs like "Sweet Louise," "Where Not To Look For Freedom," "Lucky Guy," and "Lonely Lonely," are tailor-made for road-tripping up the coast with the car top down, sunshine on your face, and the music blasting into the roar of the wind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime!!! April 22, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I'd first like to comment that I'm so happy that real musicians are now moving to the forefront of what is happening in the music front. Singer/Songwriters with REAL talent are starting to enjoy some success as of late and I for one couldn't be more excited.

Let's talk about The Belle Brigade. They are fantastic, nuanced, and filled with freshman energy. You can almost feel how happy they are to be making music on every track on this download/CD. Sweet Louise is a very strong track to lead off with and it shows off the talents of the band right away. Easing you into the mood of the album and prepping you for what is to come. Loser, the first single of the record, though where it's playing I don't know, is a real piece of work. A song that's great to listen to and has a message. (sorry if you don't like that)

The way this band harmonizes kills me and I think that ANYONE who likes REAL music will find something on this album. If you know what Daytrotter is look up their session there for a free download. Tracks from this album done acoustically with a REALLY cool intro song.

This is my first review so don't be harsh, buy The Belle Brigade...

This album rocks! Just saw The Belle Brigade at the House of Blues and couldn't wait for their album to come out. They are INCREDIBLE live, unlike so many groups you may like, but take away the production and they fall flat...not these guys! Their harmony and musicianship is just as good live, if not better, because you can see and feel the emotion their music is coming from. Check them's good stuff!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great New Group!!! December 20, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I took my wife to a KD Lang concert that I was only mildly interested in. The Belle Brigade was the opening band. THEY WERE AMAZING!! The harmonies generated by this brother-sister team who have been singing and harmonizing together all their lives is amazing. Some of there songs have a nearly Beatles like harmonization, it's amazing. They compose all their own work, which of course is all original. I have VERY FEW CDs by bands that are not from the 60s and 70s, very few, but when I heard them live in concert, what a treat, I knew I had to buy their CD, and when the next one comes out, I'll buy that too. Anyone who loves music should get this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite album of 2011 December 18, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I am pretty selective. I prefer a lot of older and established artists or songwriters but I do stay open to the new ones. I heard them on Sirius XM. Loved "Losers." Previewed it and bought album. Would have to say that hands down this was the most played album of 2011 for me.
Kind of stuff I usually listen to: Bob Dylan. Beatles. Smashing Pumpkins. Alice In Chains. Elvis Costello. Lou Reed. Lucinda Williams. Waylon, Merle. Kinks.
Why I like these guys: They have the songwriting and harmony styles of the Eagles and FleetWood Mac. But they are not The Eagles or FleetWood Mac.
They are lyrically honest and on point and insightful.
Despite their influences they are highly original and seem to be doing whatever the hell they want and how they want to do it.
They are able to sound pretty without...Well, sounding pretty.
How many new artists can actually write a song. I don't mean play their instruments with skill. I don't mean write pretty poetry. I don't mean sound and look contemporary. I mean actually write a song with a hook and a melody? Not many. This album is a collection of catchy well written songs. And they seem to be a band of integrity and some kind of depth. Congratulations to The Belle Brigade!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best pop record this year! August 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This record fell out of the blue per a friends recommendation. My goodness, these are great songs with beautiful sibling harmonies. The band propels the vocalists even farther and by your second listen you're singing along. I've been sharing my love for this record with my friends and I'd be surprised if it's not a huge hit. At least it should be! Influences abound here too. I hear great pop Southern California stylings of Fleetwood Mac along with Simon & Garfunkel. The Belle Brigade do not beat around the bush on this thing - it jumps right into your heart after one listen. Perfect for driving in the summer. Love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Passionate Freshman. June 20, 2011
By A. Pack
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
What can I say this band is passionate. You can feel that yearning, longing for something big on The Belle Brigade's debut. Not in the way that they would sell out and start singing "radio-friendly tunes", but in that the are passionate about the music they are creating and want you to be too.

I heard about this brother and sister band through The Civil Wars. So glad I checked them out. I have been listening to them ever since. It's a perfect sound for summer. Some of my favorites are Sweet Louise, Where Not to Look for Freedom, Losers, Lucky Guy, and Rusted Wheel. The whole album is awesome though.

Random fact about them: Their grandfather is John Williams (the composer).

Terrific album by a relatively new group. The lead female singer is superlative and her supporting bandmates play very well. I give this one a high recommendation for purchase.
