Meetup Description: So - its looking like back-to-back shows for me at the Mercury. Heth & Jed are f'ing brilliant. I first caught them in the subway and we've become friends. Their music had a great shoegaze sound which is what drew me to them :) Doesnt hurt that theyre the nicest guys ever.

Shwa Losben writes quirky rock songs. With a vocal style that sounds like a cross between Michael Stipe and Elliott Smith, Shwa specializes in telling stories through melodies that you can't get out of your head. In early spring, Losben released his debut solo album "Chop Chop" which 75orLess.com called "the kind of album you find yourself listening to over and over again, while gleaning something new and insightful each time. Losben's vocals are reminiscent of early Neil Young but the songwriting reminds me more or bands like R.E.M., Radiohead, Jack Johnson and others...a rare and great find."

As part of MTA?s Music Under New York program, the Weinstein brothers, Heth (guitar)and Jed (bass), are continually bringing live, innovative performances to various public spaces. Whether it?s performing at an intimate venue, braving cold street corners or filling subway halls with their uniquely layered tunes, the California and New Jersey raised siblings have proven to be in this for the love of the music since bailing on full-band efforts in 2003. ?We had some guitarist issues in other bands so we decided to just do it ourselves,? says Heth, a former drummer, with a smile. The duo?s live performance is an ongoing experiment of live looping, layering and singing that delivers a sound somewhere between Keller Williams, Jack Johnson and Pink Floyd (while some songs border on pop-rock, others are much less structured, offering more of a trance-like canvas of sound). Check out Between the In and the Out, produced by Jamie Candiloro (Ryan Adams, R.E.M.), for a one-stop introduction to the group?s self-described ?jambient rock.? Through Herculean busking efforts the guys have sold over 30,000 copies. Look for Heth & Jed?s City Sessions concert airing nationally this summer on Rave TV.
