Midwest Product

Been a long, long while since I bothered posting (it's not like anyone reads this anyway!), but I feel compelled to write something about a band I've been listening to for the past few months—Midwest Product.

They're an instrumental outfit based in Michigan and frankly it's not easy to gather much info about them. Their website is located at midwestproduct.com. One gets the impression they'd like to remain an enigma. Maybe they'd be open to a site redesign (hint, hint)?

So what do they sound like? Chances are you may have heard one of their songs in one of the recent Hummer commercials. That's what inspired me to find out who they were. Anyways, you could do worse than to imagine early New Order meets Metro Area with a pinch of Radiohead (Kid A) thrown in for good measure. In other words a very cool balance of electronic and live instruments. Good beats to move to along with arrangements that keep the ear and brain interested.

I hope they come to New York in the near future as I'd most definitely check them out.

Now if only they were looking for a lead singer...
