The Receiver – Decades

Published by at 10:55 pm under MP3's


This Thanksgiving break I listened to several different albums quite extensively, and The Receiver’s Decades was among those albums. If you are looking to just lay back and relax, this is your album. It is working its way up as one my favorites of the year. While listening, my ear was immediately drawn to the mellowed out experimental rhythms the band constructed. The vocals are thoughtful and beautifully orchestrated.

The Receiver’s are brother duo Casey and Jesse Cooper and are based in Columbus, OH. Decades actually began as Casey’s senior year thesis composition at the Ohio State University School Of Music. The project, called From The Corner Of A Room, was so widely acclaimed by those who heard it, that Casey decided to expand on the project with the help of his older brother, Jesse.

The Receiver has been compared to a handful of other musicians, including Elliott Smith, Album Leaf, and Sigur Ros. I highly recommend you check out the music below, along with the music on their Myspace.
